My favorite liver recipe is a Layered Liver Cake. It's a traditional Russian/Ukrainian dish. It is often served as an appetizer on various celebrations.

  • 3/4 lb beef liver
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 milk
  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2-3 onions
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • home made mayonnaise
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • Fresh dill to taste


  • Wash your liver and put it into a food processor
  • Add 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of buckwheat flour, 1/2 cup milk, salt to the liver and turn the processor on, leave it until the mixture forms into a smooth paste.
  • Heat your non stick pan. Add a little bit of oil and pour some of the liver mixture onto the pan so it forms a pancake. When the pancake starts changing color, flip it. I use a frying pan about 10-11 inches in diameter.
  • Grate carrots on a medium grater. Mince onions.
  • Saute onions and carrots in olive oil.
  • Add  squeezed garlic to the mayonnaise.
  • Spread the mayo mixture onto each liver pancake. Spread carrot and onion mix over.  Cover with next pancake and repeat with mayo-garlic and onion-carrots, until last pancake is on, then just finish it up with remaining of the mayo mix. 
  • Let it sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Serve cold.
