3 1/2 ounces chicken livers
1/2 cup red wine
7 ounces crushed tomatoes

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

Preparation 1 hours preparation + 40 minutes cooking

2. Add the egg yolks and quickly knead in all the flour

3. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and let rest for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator

13. With your finger, press lightly to close the seam between the bottom and the side strip
