    A Very HEARTY Dish!

    A Very HEARTY Dish!



    I have been somewhat more adventurous lately on the cooking front. I've been experimenting with foods like chicken gizzards, beef liver, chicken liver...just expanding my "horizons" as far as foods go. Recently, I ordered some meats from a site called USA Wellness. They carry organic and grass-fed products. One of the items I ordered was beef heart. Today I prepared the beef heart in my slow cooker and surprisingly, I loved it!

    I served it to my brother, his wife, and their kids. I made them each try to guess what the meat was. I got answers like, "London Broil", and "buffalo". Then my sister-in-law said, 'is it liver? or lung?' She was close!

    This recipe comes from a blog called Paleo In Comparison. I wanted to keep it as simple as possible because I really wanted the flavors of the beef heart to come through. The heart was tender and tasted very much like lean steak. It did not, in my opinion, have that "livery" texture...more "meaty". I highly recommend you try beef heart in your next culinary adventure. Have you had beef heart before? I'm interested in hearing about what you thought of it!


    Ingredients:
    1 grass-fed beef heart
    1 large onion, peeled & cut in several slices
    6 carrots cut in half (you can peel if you want, however I don't bother)
    6-8 whole garlic cloves
    1 cup of red wine (can use water or broth)
    Salt & Pepper

    Place cut onions, carrots and whole garlic cloves in the bottom of the slow-cooker. Place beef heart on top of veggies. Some recipes tell you to trim the heart; however, I skip this. I find it's more work than it's worth, and I like keeping that fat on the heart for flavor. You can always cut around any difficult to chew portions after it's cooked. Pour wine or liquid of choice over the meat. Season with salt & pepper (and any other herbs you may be using). Place lid on slow-cooker, and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove heart from slow cooker and allow to set for 5-10 minutes. Slice into 1 inch pieces.
