  I prefer the following version.  It's a bit more complex, but one of
  the ingredients might be a bit hard to find++tuong, a kind of soy
  bean paste used in Vietnam.  A good Vietnamese market will have it.
  Using medium heat, fry the garlic in the oil.  Add the liver and
  pork. Lower the heat and add the tomato paste; stir and add the
  tuong. Stir again and add the water and peanut butter.  Raise the
  heat to medium and add the sugar. Boil for 1 minute and transfer to a
  Add the sesame seeds to a medium-hot frying pan, stirring constantly
  until browned.  This should take 2 to 3 minutes.  Add the sesame
  seeds to the nuoc leo, along with the chopped peanuts.
  The sauce can be garnished with thin strips of hot pepper.
  NOTE:  Beef or chicken liver can be substituted, but pork liver is
  preferred.  The piece should be the size of a large chicken liver.
