About this recipe: This was my dad's way of making sure our family got our weekly dose of liver. It's one of those recipes that he never wrote down. Most of the time he added it to soup, but once in a while he served it with fried onions.


Serves: 4 

  • 450g (1 lb) raw pork or beef liver
  • 50g (2 oz) fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 dash salt, divided
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2L (3 1/2) pints boiling beef stock

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Grind liver in a food processor until smooth. Blend in breadcrumbs, egg, flour, salt and pepper. Using a wet spoon, drop spoonfuls into boiling stock. Simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.

Warming comfort food! I only boiled the dumplings for about 5min though. Also used veg stock with some veg thrown in (they needed using up). Added basil, oregano, mixed herbs and garlic to the dumpling mix which worked well. - 21 Nov 2013
