Instant Pot Liver and Onions With Bacon and Mash
You know me and my approach to populist food, for the most part this live and onions recipe perfectly represents that approach! Offal has most definitely fallen out of favour and because of that I have delayed putting up one of my favourite recipes here on krumpli.
But hey, this site is meant to represent me, what I cook and how I cook, not what is popular on instagram. As a result of this I am delighted to offer you what I think is one of the tastiest meals you can eat and let’s face it, one that is extremely frugal.
I have always loved liver and onions and I emphatically believe that if you are going to take the life of an animal use all of the beast, apart from the lining of the stomach of course, I hate tripe.
Anyway I digress, This live and onions recipe is not the first here on krumpli to feature offal and it certainly will not be the last, primarily because I am busy working on a ‘brain ravioli dish’ and for those of you craving an immediate fix check out my faggots and mash recipe.
Liver in the Instant Pot.
I chose to take my old slow braised liver and onion dish and update it for the Instant pot for this recipe because it is the sort of dish that the Instant pot just does so very well.
Overall I have not been as enamoured with my instant pot as many hardcore advocates, but what it does do well it does very well indeed and braising cheaper cuts of meat is really in its wheel arch.
As a result you can forget about boot leather tough liver and enjoy this soft and tender beautifully cooked liver instead. Notwithstanding this you can of course cook this in the oven just follow the rough outline of steps and then cook in the oven at 160°C or 320°C for 30-40 minutes.
