  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne peppers or to your liking
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 -3 jalapeno peppers sliced
  • 2 pounds beef liver cut into thick strips
  • 2 Tablespoon vinegar
  • Juice of one lime


  • In a mini processor, add garlic, salt, cumin and cayenne pepper process until mixed well.
  • In a non stick skillet heat oil over medium high heat then add diced jalapeño and stir for 15 seconds.
  • Add garlic mixture and saute for 30 more seconds.
  • Add chopped liver and mix everything well. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and mix in vinegar.
  • Cook for 3-5 more minutes.
  • Turn heat off then add a squeeze of lime and mix everything well.
  • Prepare the sandwiches by slathering some tahini sauce along with shredded lettuce red bell peppers ( or hot) and scoop some liver in the sandwiches.


  • You can add a teaspoon of coriander and/or black pepper.
  • I am a hardcore liver lover so I use any type of liver in this recipe including beef liver which has a strong flavor. You can start with lamb, calf, mutton or venison liver if you would like a mild one.
  • Some people like using ghee or butter for this recipe, but I like using oil.
  • Storage: Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can also freeze leftovers for up 4 months.
