Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and fry onion and peppers for about 7 – 10 minutes, or until the onions are soft and golden brown.

  2. Add the chicken livers and continue to fry over a medium heat for 10 minutes, or the chicken livers are lightly browned.

  3. Stir in the Robertsons Steak & Chops Spice and cook for 1 minute. Then add the tomatoes and the tomato paste, turn down the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

  4. Mix the cornflour to a smooth paste with a little cold water and add this to the pot, stirring all the time. Continue to simmer until the sauce has thickened and livers are cooked through.
