Jaghoor Baghoor (Lamb’s Liver)

Jaghoor Baghoor is Iranian-style sautéed liver dish usually made with sheep liver, but beef liver should work too. The secret to making the liver actually taste good is to use turmeric spices to mask the liver’s strong smell and taste. This delicious dish is quick to make but at the same time good enough to serve to guests. Lamb’s liver needs a very brief cooking to be tender.

    I’m trying to be a more adventurous eater so I bought a lamb’s liver from a local farmer and looked for recipes. I came across this one and it was absolutely delicious. The flavors all complimented each other perfectly. We used some fresh turmeric as well as powdered. It was wonderful. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I just made this using diced sweet potato and carrots instead of potato.
    Added 2 cloves of garlic to the onions, and used celery salt.
    No other accompaniments.
    Lovely and different. Recommended.

    This was just amazing. Very easy and less hassle. I usually make my lamb very bland … this just topped my taste buds.

  9. J W Heller


    It was still a bit bland so I added cumin, cayenne, more salt and water and it was ok.
