Beef liver with caramelized leeks


For the liver

  • Put the liver into a bowl and add the milk, the rosemary, and cover with plastic wrap. Make sure that the plastic wrap touches the milk so that the liver stays submerged.
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or up to 1 day. 
  • Drain, transfer to paper towels, and pat dry the liver.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Spread the olive oil, salt, and pepper to the liver, and cut it into 3-4 cm pieces.
  • Transfer to the hot pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. 
  • Deglaze the pan with the balsamic cream, mix, and remove from the heat.

For the leeks

  • Place a frying pan over high heat.
  • Cut each leek into 3 pieces and spread the olive oil.
  • Transfer to the hot pan, add salt, pepper, and sauté until golden.
  • Add the butter and mix until it melts. Deglaze the pan with the water and cover with parchment paper to which you have made a hole to let the steam escape.
  • Simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve the liver and the leeks with balsamic cream and thyme.
