Onions, garlic, butter and pepper

This is the classic way to serve liver and bacon. Quick, easy and very tasty.

A few quick tips: Cook the onions really slowly, about 30 minutes to get nice and caramelised. Cut the liver into thin strips and cook it quickly, don't overcook it or it will be like shoe leather.
