Haitian Cooking Recipe: Beef Liver & Onions (Fwa Bef Ak Zonyon)



I am not going to lie, this is the one meal I will eat as long as you don’t tell me what it is because it taste so good, you’d never guess you were eating liver.

Beef is a very high commodity in Haiti, so when a cow is slaughtered, nothing goes to waste. Organs in particular have a very unique taste and can either taste really good in the right hands or really bad in the wrong. When cooking Beef Liver or (Fwa bef) its all about the temperature. Cooking it too high and you can end up with a piece of leather. Cook it too low and you will end up with what looks like mushy ground beef. The secret is to sauté high and finish low.


    • 1 lb of Beef Liver
    • 1/4 cup of chopped onions
    • 3 Limes Juiced
    • 1/2 tsp of salt (or to taste)
    • 3 Tbs of white vinegar
    • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
    • 2 Tbs of tomato paste
    • 1/2 cup of water
    • 3 Tbs of Haitian Seasoning Base (Epis)
