This is a recipe for summer when English lambs’ liver is plentiful.

Serves 6

Liver Casserole
 1/14 lb (570 g) lambs’ liver, cut into ¼ inch (5 mm) thick slices
 plain flour
 1 oz (25 g) butter
 1 tablespoon oil
 2 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced
 ½ lb (225 g) new carrots, washed and cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) lengths
 2 lb (900 g) new potatoes, scraped
 1 lb (450 g) tomatoes, skinned and sliced
 ½ pint (275 ml) stock
 ½ level teaspoon dried oregano
 1 level tablespoon tomato puree
 Salt and freshly milled black pepper
 Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, 350°F (180°C).


Begin by drying the liver slices with kitchen paper, then lightly coat the pieces in the seasoned flour. Next heat the butter and oil together in a frying pan and soften the sliced onion in it over a low heat for about 10 minutes.

Now arrange half the floured liver slices in the base of a deep ovenproof casserole and cover with a layer of onion, carrots and scraped new potatoes, followed by half the sliced tomatoes. Then repeat all over again, finishing up with a layer of tomatoes. Combine the stock, oregano and tomato puree together in a jug, season, pour this into the casserole, cover closely and bake for about 11/2 hours, or until the vegetables are tender.
