Red face Beef heart

I plan on boiling it with onions, celery and carrots.
How long per pound should I cook it?

Boiling is the only way I've ever done it.. any other ideas?

Thanks,
T

I've never eaten or cooked it so I googled the topic and checked out some of the recipes.

Since the heart is a hard-working muscle, it's lean and tough. Recipes involved either roasting at a low temp for 7-9 hours or simmering in a liquid for several hours.

Sounds like a good candidate for a crock pot. Low and slow all day.

Definitely tough and a candidate for hours of slow coorking. Or, like my mother, you could put it in the pressure cooker.

It turned out wonderfully!

I covered it in one can of beef broth and water
then added lots of onions, carrots, celery, garlic, salt and pepper.
Brought it to a boil for about 30 minutes and then a slow simmer for about 1.5 hours.
It was so nice and tender. And very tasty.

Thanks everyone for the advice.

What a laugh this line is for me. Mom always boiled or braised it all day, until she had a pressure cooker, now she uses that. In my teenage years I found a recipe for stuffing and roasting it. Wow, what a disaster. Dry heat just doesn't do it for this very tough peice of meat!!! But I miss those meats that my husband simply wouldn't eat, and since the 'invention' of cholesterol, are no longer considered "good for you". What I could really taste now is Mom's beef tongue with horseradish gravy.

We had tongue last Sunday when my mother had us over. She doesn't make it often because she has difficulty peeling the skin. Anyone have any tips on peeling tongue?
