Heart is one of the easiest pieces of offal to incorporate into your diet. As an entire organ, the heart may look a bit shocking but once it is trimmed, sliced, and laying on your plate it looks as inconspicuous as any other well known cut of beef or game meat.
Nose to tail eating is a respectful way to utilize the whole animal, provide your body with important nutrition, and save a few dollars in your wallet.

Beef Heart Food Prep Tip
Adding ground beef heart to normal ground beef is an excellent combination that adds only a slightly different flavor with a whole lot more nutrition.
Ask your butcher to grind the heart for you. Take it home like this or get it combined into normal ground beef. Once the heart is ground, it can be used in any of the same ways as ground muscle meat. Burgers with onion pan sauce and Meatza are great recipes for weekly meal prep.
Heart has a tender, succulent flavor and is wonderfully nutritious. It can be ground, seared, grilled and eaten raw. We often eat beef heart as a family. When our daughter was two (so many years ago!) she greatly inspired us with her love of raw beef heart. It was her favorite way to eat it and so easy for me to prep, just dice it up and serve!
