How to cook chicken livers in grandma's sauce

  1. Preparation of the ingredients: We begin by washing all the vegetables. Then, we peel and chop the onion and garlic cloves. Cut the green pepper and tomato into small pieces. Also, clean the chicken livers, making sure to remove any fat or unwanted tissue.
  2. Sauteed vegetables: Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and green pepper and cook until tender and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Cooking the livers: Add the chicken livers to the pan and cook until they are golden brown on the outside, which should take around 5-7 minutes. It's important not to overcook them so they don't dry out.
  4. Adding the liquids: Add the white wine to the pan and let it cook over medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes so that the alcohol evaporates. Then, we add the chopped tomato and the chicken broth and bring them to a boil. We reduce the heat to medium-low and let them cook over low heat for 20 minutes.
  5. Completion and seasoning: We taste and if necessary add salt and pepper to taste. If the sauce is very liquid, we can increase the heat to medium-high and cook for a few additional minutes to reduce it. Finally, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley before serving.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
