Lambs' Liver with (Orchard Fruits) Apple and Pear

Lambs' Liver with (Orchard Fruits) Apple and Pear

Serves 2


  • 4 slices of Scotch lamb's liver ( approximately 225g)

  • 1 tbsp plain flour lightly seasoned with salt and pepper

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 small dessert apple, cored and sliced

  • 1 small dessert pear, cored and sliced

  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped sage

  • 150 ml (1/4 pt) unsweetened apple juice

  • 1 tsp cold butter

Cooking Method

  1. Toss the liver in the seasoned flour just to lightly coat. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the liver gently for a minute or two, or until the blood starts to run. Then turn over and cook for a further minute. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  2. Add the apples and pears to the frying pan and cook briskly for 2 minutes. They will start to turn transparent. Add the sage and apple juice, leave to bubble for a minute or two to reduce a little then whisk in the butter.
  3. Divide the liver and orchard fruits between warmed plates and spoon over the sage and apple jus.

Liver and fruit make a good match. Orange segments could replace the apples and pear, and substitute the sage with tarragon or chives.

Serving suggestions

Ask your butcher to slice the lambs liver thinly and evenly – so it can be cooked quickly for a meltingly tender result. Enjoy this fresh and fruity way with offal…
