My sanwich was fine, thanks. I have never tried beef heart. Sounds good.
Beef heart has a very intense beef flavor--if you like that, you'd like heart. I loved it--the leftovers are in the freezer--slices for stir fry and chunks for some other recipes.
If you find more quills, you want to twist them out, not yank them. To twist the quill out, you need a tweezer or a hemostat. You hook onto the quill and then wrap the quill around the hemostat or tweezer. You don't want to yank the quill out because of the prongs. Hope that is what's bugging him. Best of luck and keep us posted! I'm rather partial to dogs...
