Nina's Chopped Liver (from "Love and Knishes")
1 pound liver (beef, calf, or chicken)
1 onion *
salt and pepper, to taste
2 hard-boiled eggs
2 tablespoons schmaltz
Place liver under broiler and broil until well done (about
10 minutes), turning once. Remove from broiler and
cool. Remove skin and veins. Put liver, eggs, and onion
through a food grinder, using the fine blade. Season with
salt and pepper. Add schmaltz, working it through the
liver with a fork. The liver should be moist enough to hold
together; if necessary, add more schmaltz.
* Some people prefer to sauté chopped onion in schmaltz
before adding to liver.
