Delicious Liver Alexandrian Style

Grilled liver is an amazing protein in taste, nutritional value and all the things you can do with it. I think however you cook your livers – they will always taste fantastic! This recipe is simple and doesn’t need any special ingredients. Since, we cook this dish a lot at home, I have updated the recipe again to make sure the oriental taste comes through in every bite.


  • 500 gram liver (shredded) - كبدة
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil (OR corn oil) - زيت زيتون
  • 1 tablespoon garlic clove (minced) - فص ثوم
  • 1/2 yellow pepper (thinly sliced) - فلفل أصفر
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (thinly sliced) - فلفل رومي احمر
  • 1 tomato (peeled and chopped) - طماطم
  • 4 tablespoon vinegar - خل
  • 2 lime (juiced) - ليمون بلدي
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin - كمون
  • green chili pepper (OR red chili pepper - chopped - optional) - فلفل أخضر حار
  • 1 handful parsley (finely chopped - OPTIONAL) - بقدونس
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل

Step by step

  1. Mix vinegar, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper and marinade shredded liver in the fridge for half hour.
  2. In a large pan, add oil and fry garlic on medium heat for a couple of minutes before adding the liver (make sure garlic doesn't turn brown). Let the liver fry for a few minutes until it gets some brownish colour then remove it from the pan.
  3. In the same pan, add sliced bell peppers, chili peppers and tomatoes and let them cook for 5 minutes or until they soften a bit – then add the liver back and let it cook in the liquid created for another 10 minutes (or until liquid evaporates a bit).
  4. Serve it hot with a garnish of chopped parsley and some Tahini on the side.
