Today I show you my recipe Veal Liver with balsamic vinegar. We know this preparation from Italy under the name calf liver Venetian kind.

In this article I will give you an overview about the preparation of veal liver and ideas for the side dishes.

In the video veal liver Venetian style I show you the simple preparation and what you must absolutely consider when frying the veal liver.

Good luck! I am pleased about comments, the sharing of the contribution is expressly desired. 

1. Roast Veal Liver

What should I bear in mind when frying veal liver? Firstly, the liver should be bought fresh and already cleaned, cut into slices. Secondly, the liver must not be seasoned before roasting, salting before roasting can make the liver hard and inedible. Third, you should either have a good veal stock or veal jus at home, or at least a mature balsamic vinegar. There is a second article on roasted liver, there I show a variant recipe roasted chicken liver.
