Default How do you cook deer heart?

I'm finally going to try it but not sure how to cook it. I tried to search it but it's not working for some reason. So tell me your best recipes.

Boil it. Then slice it and make sammiches.

If you have backstrap you cook it like chicken fried steak!
Add a little Tony's more spice to the flour and your good to go.

Clean out all the ventricles and stuff and then slice it fairly thin. Then either grill super hot or you can bread and fry. I've also chopped it up into little pieces and cooked with taco seasoning and made some pretty good tacos.

Slice it 1/4 inch. Fry it in olive oil in a hot skillet with salt and pepper. Yum. Do not over cook it.

What the best way to clean it? I used my finger and got all of the coagulated blood out when I cut it out. Anything I should cut out and not eat? By the way I'm totally trying the tacos.

I'd definitely remove the chordae tendineae. That's the white stringy stuff: it's a tendon and basically inedible.

Boiling meat? What is this, Victorian England?

(I say this ironically, as I currently have a corned beef simmering in the oven.)

I like to cook it with a little chipotle adobo and serve on corn tortillas for tacos.

Just cut off everything that doesn't look like meat. It will be easy to tell what you don't want to eat once you start cutting. I made fajitas and it was pretty good.

If your wanting to try heart just as heart meat, fry or tacos. If you want to use it in something, you can make pate with it.

Cut out any parts that don't look like smooth dark red meat. Anything white or gray or hard, cut it out and toss it.

Slice the rest thin, flour lightly and pan fry in bacon grease. Cook medium, then store in a 250 degree oven while you make the gravy.

Gravy= same pan used to fry the hearts, swirl in some beef broth and break up the brown bits from the frying. Heat on medium until it starts to thicken up. Add more stock if need to make it look like gravy. Salt lightly, finish salt at the table.

Add the hearts back into the gravy to warm them up a little. Serve over rice or mashed spuds, or with crusty bread.

I prefer cleaning, Olive Oil, salt, pepper and sliced thin. Grill in hot skillet until rare/medium rare and then top with minced shallot, lemon juice and oregano.


Charred Venison Heart with Field Sauce
Olive oil
Salt/Pepper
Lemon juice
Minced shallot
Minced fresh oregano

Mix ingredients to make sauce and set aside. Prepare heart by washing and trimming away any remaining fat, valves, and connective tissue. Butterfly by splitting open lengthwise and flatten.
Season venison heart with olive oil, salt, & pepper and char over very hot fire for approximately 3 minutes on one side. Flip and sear venison heart for approximately 2 minutes. Rest for 7-8 minutes. Pour sauce over heart and rest 2-3 more minutes. Slice thin and serve immediately.

or this:

Venison Bruschetta
10 small fresh venison heart slices, about 4 to 6 ounces total.
1 charred red pepper
4 slices charred red onion
ľ cup robust olive oil (NOT extra virgin)
ľ cup fresh chervil
2 cup watercress
8 oz. softened goat cheese with minced chives
balsamic vinegar, to taste
Baguette

Bruschetta Drizzle and Marinade
2 tbs. whole seed rustic mustard
2 tbs. dijon Mustard
1 tbs minced Shallot
1 tbs minced chives
2 tbs. champagne vinegar
2 tsp. honey
1/4 cup olive oil (not virgin or extra virgin)

Divide marinade into 2 portions. Marinate venison. Char pepper, onion and baguette slices. Spread softened goat cheese on baguette and set aside. Skin and seed pepper, julienne both pepper and onion and then coarse chop and mix together. Cook venison slices for 45 seconds to 1 minute, flip and cook for same time in cast iron skillet. Remove venison, immediately drizzle with marinade and let rest 5 minutes. Add heart to baguette, top with pepper and onion mix, plate and add watercress, chives, marinade and balsamic.

I cut it in half long ways and cut out everything that's white. Slice it up and then fry it up. Don't overcook it.

I have to give you a big thank you. I did not have any shells so I made a taco salad. It was ridiculously good. Iíll definitely be making it in the future.
