       Title: Sur Le Gril Chopped Liver
  Categories: Meats
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lb Fresh Calves' Liver                 1 ea Egg, hard-cooked, mashed
       2 tb Salad Oil                           1 x  Salt
       3 tb Butter                              1 x  Freshly Ground Pepper
       1 ea Large Spanish Onion, chopped   
  
   With a sharp knife, remove the tough outer membranes from liver.
   In a heavy skillet, heat oil and add chopped onions. Cook over medium high
   heat until translucent and golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and
   set aside.
   Add butter to skillet. Heat until melted. Add liver pieces. Over medium
   heat, fry liver until just done - 3 minutes on each side. Alternatively,
   liver can be brushed with butter and broiled. To test for doneness, cut a
   piece from liver slice. If still pink, continue cooking for 30 - 60
   seconds. Overcooking causes the liver to be dry and tough.
   For finely mashed egg that disappears in the liver mixture, force egg
   through a wire strainer. For best results, separate the hard cooked whites
   from yolks and sieve them separately. Set aside.
   Fit meat grinder with a medium blade and place cooked liver and cooked
   onions in the grinder. Grind, then regrind the ground mixture.
   In a medium mixing bowl, combine the twice ground meat and onions mixture
   with the sieved eggs. Add salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. If
   desired, add a few drops of commercial gravy browning liquid to heighten
   color.
   Refrigerate for 24 hours before serving. Serve with slices of tomato,
   cucumber and dark rye bread.
   Serves 4.
