In Dominica calf liver is a delicacy eaten mainly for breakfast. Since I can only find calf liver at special stores, I sometimes buy chicken liver when I feel like eaten stewed liver.This recipe was requested by one of my subscribers. I was more happy to oblige since that would mean that I I get to eat too!

1 tsp hot sauce
1/4 cup red onions thinly sliced
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
