How to cook beef liver pate
1. Prepare vegetables for cooking. Wash and clean onions and carrots.
2. Finely chop the onion and fry until golden brown, boil the carrots.
3. Thoroughly rinse the beef liver, put it to boil for carrots for 15 minutes.
4. Check the readiness of the meat and cool it along with the vegetables.
5. Grind the cooled liver in a meat grinder. Add fried onions, 150 grams of butter and ground pepper to taste in the liver puree. In order for the pate to become tender and look like a soufflé, scroll the resulting mass at least 2 times and then beat with a blender or a fork.
6. Ready pate can be stuffed with eggs or served with sandwiches.
7. To prepare a traditional pate roll, spread the whipped mass on cling film or foil in a uniform thick layer.
8. Keep the remaining 100 grams of butter at room temperature until softened. Then thinly spread a little over the entire pate layer.

10. Leave the roll in a film or foil, align the roll with your hands, shape it into a sausage and leave it in a film or foil to preserve tenderness until serving.
