I had to piece this together from the shoutbox @tacmotusn cut and pasted here whole hog, no edits or attempts at filling in the omissions if any. Guns, if you want to, pm edits to me or a mod for fixing this up and filling in the oopses. Fixed, I think. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Liver rules are easy. must be fresh, not frozen. frozen liver may be prepared passable, but will NEVER get rave reviews even from liver lovers. i would never share this in deer camps, because that is usually where i receive free fresh deer liver. you can chill it in freezer until it firms up enough to easily slice into near uniform 3/8 - 1/2" slices. refrigerate until ready to prepare, less than 24 hours. heavy skillet such as seasoned cast iron best. i save bacon fat and keep in jar in frig for cooking certain things. this is one of them. take two large sweet onions or what you have. peel them, split them into halves vertically, slice into 5/16 - 3/8 half slices, set aside. heat skillet over med high heat with 3 - 4 TBS bacon fat or improvise (butter flavor crisco maybe) don't let it smoke / burn, add onions and cook them stirring until just starting to carmelize. remove onions and set aside. add fat if necessary, liver slices, season with salt n pepper, dredge in flour, sear quickly both sides in batches (when blood starts to bubble thru on top unseared side flip over - don't worry about undercooking). when all slices are seared both sides, remove skillet from heat. Turn the heat down to low. Return onions to skillet and add 1/4 cup of flour from dredging, and stir until fully moistened, then stir in 3 cups half milk n half water. increase heat a bit to bring to simmer boil, stirring. when thickened add seared slices and juice from slices to onion gravy mixture. keep at slow simmer 20 - 30 min covered when not stirring. Finish other sides during this time. you have to fix one of the following, biscuits, mashed taters, or rice. also another veggie side. serve and enjoy. the liver should be cutable with fork alone. gravy may be stretched with cream of mushroom soup.
