Delicious Szechuan Liver

Hello all,

Someone asked on Twitter today what food could you eat every day for a month. Well, I thought the Szechuan liver I cooked tonight was one good candidate. It's so delicious and I love it so much.

Here's the recipe for 2 people:

Ingredients:
250-300 grams lamb's liver
1.5 tablespoons soy sauce
3 teaspoons cornflour
2 tablespoon sherry
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove of garlic crushed
2 cm of ginger, chopped
a bunch of spring onions
a small can of bamboo shoots
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of sesame oil

Slice the liver to about 1 cm thickness and 3 cm length. Mix with the cornflour and add sugar, salt, soy sauce, sherry and ginger and let it marinade.

In the mean time cut the green onions to about 3 cm long. Heat the oil in a wok or cooking pan, add the onion and bamboo shoots and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and the pieces of lamb. Stir fry for about 5 minutes. Add a tablespoonful of water into the pan and mix well. Cook for 3 minutes or until the liver is cooked. Add the sesame seed oil and heat for another 3 minutes.

Serve with fluffy white rice.



Use good quality soy sauce like Kikkoman is you can because the flavour is really different. Sesame oil also tends to vary in intensity with different brands. Be careful because too much sesame oil doesn't taste good. I use Tesco brand sesame oil for this.

I hope you will enjoy cooking and eating this dish.
