12 oz broiled liver
1 large onion
8 oz fresh mushrooms
1 clove garlic
3 tablespoons of olive oil
3 - 4 hard boiled eggs
In a food processor chop the onion, mushrooms and garlic. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Fry until brown. Process the hard cooked eggs separately. Process or chop the liver. Mix all the ingredients together. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Salt &pepper to taste.
For Chopped Liver to taste like Bubbie's used to, use chicken fat instead of olive oil.
Mock Chopped Liver
2 cans cut green beans - drained
or 1 kilo fresh green beans
1/3 cup walnuts
3 pieces black bread
3 hard boiled eggs
1 onion - sauteed
Sautee the onion. Place all ingredients in the food processor with the steel blade. Chop until the desired consistency is reached. I actually like it on the coarse side. Salt and pepper to taste.
I have found that fresh green beans are much tastier. When I am not able to get them I use fresh or frozen broccoli or peas.
