Ingredients

Other than lamb liver, you will need water, salt, and milk to clean, rinse and soak the liver. Himalayan Pink Salt is my primary cooking salt other than sea salt.

I use Shaoxing wine and Arrowroot Flour to marinate the liver.

For the Stir Fry, green onion, ginger, and garlic lend the fragrant yumminess. Regular Soy Sauce and a pinch of cumin powder add a unique flavor.

Vegetables such as Red Onion, Carrots and Celery are optional, but they make good company for this stir-fry.

How to make a tasty Liver Stir Fry from scratch?

The very first step is to slice the liver and clean it properly

The importance of cleaning is especially true for lamb liver, since lamb has a stronger smell.

Cut liver into bite-size thin slices using a sharp chef’s knife and place them into a mixing bowl. Rinse the liver slices under the running water three times and then add 1/4 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt and fill the bowl with cold water. Let it rest for about 10 minutes.

Rinse the liver with milk

After 10 minutes of soaking the liver slices in the water with a pinch of salt, remove them from the mixing bowl. Gently squeeze to get rid of the excess water and place them onto a deep plate.

Wash and rinse the mixing bowl and then add the liver slices back into the mixing bowl. Then add 1 cup of whole milk. Gently mix and fold for about 30 seconds. Milk will further cleanse the liver and mitigate the stronger smell.
