ISO beef heart recipe

okay, I've been pushing around a beef heart in the freezer for too long now. Anyone have a tasty recipe that could maybe disquise the texture? I know it is the texture that has me hesitant to cook the beast. Any pressure cooker, slow cooker, grilled or oven recipes to suggest?

Beef heart is good although I know of no place to find it today. But it has a nice flavor.

Certainly for stew type meals, including chili or even stuff like sloppy joe's they give a better flavor than ground meat in my opinion.

Sure there are many other recipes. But I have not seen beef heart is so many years I cannot get excited.

I did once see a cooking programme that made stuffed hearts.

I used to make "zharkoe" - stew using the hart, it is very good. Even my wife liked it, well, untill she found out what it was.


Here is the link to my recipe, just substitude the meat part for the hart. Yum.

I was liking the minced idea, even thinking of adding sausage seasonings and using it for pizza topping, but Connie that recipe looks great. It calls for one cup of water and then simmer for 4 hours. Wouldn't the water evaporate away? It does not say to cover the meat, but do you think a person should cover it for 4 hours of simmering??
thanks Charlie, I'll look up zharkoe!

be still my heart, lol

my ex motherinlaw taught me how to fry it, much like chicken fried steak. guess she could get it cheaply during the war. she fed boarders and they all loved it.

it is necessary to slice it fairly thin. kinda tastes like round steak to me. my husband was the fussest eater on the planet and he loved it. dredge in flour and fry very quickly.

babe

We boil it in water... add salt pepper celery onions and garlic.

Slice thin and snack on it. WONDERFUL.

That reminds me ...we have lamb heart or two that we need to eat up.
