Grilled Beef Heart ๐Ÿฅฉ

In honor of Valentines Day, I give you…heart โค๏ธ

Beef heart is a great starter organ meat for those who want to give nose to tail eating a try ๐Ÿฅณ

Unlike a lot of offal, like liver, the heart is technically a muscle so it has a similar texture to that of a cut of steak and is similar in taste as well!

Itโ€™s said that one should eat the organ that one wants to support and thatโ€™s the case with heart as well. Beef heart contains a lot of CoQ10 which is essential for fueling your mitochondria and keeping your cardiovascular system healthy ๐Ÿซ€

Itโ€™s also a good source of heme iron and vitamin B12 which are critical for blood building ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Next time you want to eat steak, I encourage you to give grilled heart a try! You might surprise yourself ๐Ÿ™ƒ

As with everything, quality matters, and I know I can trust sources like US Wellness Meats or Northstar Bison for the best meat available. You can use my referral link at Northstar Bison to save 10$ on your first order.

Online butchers like the ones above typically sell beef and bison hearts that are already cleaned. You can usually choose between a half heart or a whole heart (it can weigh about 3 pounds). The blood vessels are usually removed and you have to do minimal trimming ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ

Next, I slice the raw meat into steak size slices and then treat it like I would treat a steak.

I usually salt it with flaked sea salt and then grill it in Tallow or Ghee until itโ€™s crisp on the outside but still medium-rare/medium on the inside.

Itโ€™s not as tender as a filet so I prefer to eat it less well done ๐Ÿ˜…

I then enjoy it with a slather of grass-fed butter and my favorite sides such as mashed cauliflower or with a fat fueled salad for a nutrient dense lunch!

For a fun twisted taco night, thinly slice it and enjoy it on a grain free tortilla with avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒฎ

Beef Heart tastes a lot like a steak when grilled properly and I want to make grilled chicken heart kabobs in the future. I like it medium rare!
