  1. I love a good hearty beef stew (or any good stew, I guess!), and the addition of the mashed chicken liver is a clever way to both flavor and thicken the stew while also adding great nutritional value. I’d never heard of such a thing, and it’s really quite marvelous sounding.

  2. yes…Actually, i like using the chicken liver as an added flavor especially when i am making a stew made of tomato sauce. it just blend really good…must try…thanks!!
