  • 40 g butter
  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 2 shallots or leeks, sliced thinly
  • 250 g button mushrooms

  • 2.5 ml crushed garlic
  • 10 ml lemon juice

  1. Combine the flour, Robertsons Steak and Chops Spice, Robertsons Barbecue Spice and salt and place in a ziplock bag or paper bag. Add a few of the drained chicken livers at a time and toss in the flower to coat. Shake off excess flour and repeat with the rest of the chicken livers.

Add the shallots or leeks and cook for a few minutes, add the mushrooms, Robertsons Mixed Herbs and Robertsons Cayenne Pepper and cook until the mushrooms are starting to brown. Season and add the cream. Return the chicken livers to the frying pan. Pour the heated brandy over and ignite. Mix well until the flames subside.

  5. Toast or heat the roosterkoek in the oven to get crisp and warm. Spoon the chicken livers over and drizzle with the herb oil. Serve immediately.
