- Wrap the drained liver in a plastic wrap, arranging the pieces so as to form a big sausage. Close the wrap and tighten each end so there is no air. Wrap in 5 layers of plastic wrap. Tighten the ends. Bring some water to a boil in a steamer.
- Once the water has come to a boil, place the wrapped liver in the steamer basket and cook for 18 minutes. Turn it over halfway through the cooking time. Remove the basket and let it cool down for 2 hours at room temperature and then refrigerate for 4 hours so that the fat congeals and hardens. Remove the plastic wrap and wrap it in aluminum foil. Wait at least 24 hours before serving. You can keep it for 4 to 5 days in the fridge.
