In the book Miriam's Kitchen by Elizabeth Ehrlich there is a recipe for
chicken livers with onions. The book is a memoir and it has various recipes
in it. Here is the recipe:
Chicken Livers with Noodles (Lukshn Mit Leybern)
1 Lb chichen livers
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 tbsp. flour
3/4 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
Egg noodles (medium width)
Clean chicken livers. Slice into generous bite-size pieces. Broil gently
until done, then drain on toweling.
Place onion in medium saucepan and sprinkle with black pepper. Cook on low
heat until onion pieces sweat.
Add the oil to cover bottom of pan and onion. Mix. Saute until just
golden. Stir in livers. Cook for a few minutes over low heat. Add the
flour and sugar and mix together. Cover with hot water and simmer for 10 or
15 minutes over low flame. Add salt to taste. Simmer for a few more
minutes. Serve hot on cooked noodles.
Yield: 1 lb chicken livers serves four as a main course.
The recipes in the book are mostly from the author's mother in law (Miriam).
While Miriam prepares the dishes the author watches and takes notes. I wish
I had done the same with my grandmother's recipes. Nothing was written down
and now with her memory gone so are the wonderful dishes that she used to
prepare. I have a few recipes from her that I prepare from memory (I used
to watch her cook when I was a kid) and sometimes thru trial and error I get
pretty close to the original.
Hope this was what you were looking for.
