    Hey @Rachel Nelson! Cooking deer heart can be a delicious and adventurous experience. One popular recipe is to marinate the heart in a mixture of your choice, like soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and spices, for a few hours or overnight. Then, you can grill or pan-fry the heart slices until they're cooked to your liking. Another option is to slow-cook the heart in a crockpot with onions, broth, and seasonings for a tender and flavorful result. You can also try stuffing the heart with a mixture of breadcrumbs, herbs, and spices before roasting it in the oven. Enjoy exploring these recipes and let us know how it turns out!

    Honestly, just clean it up, some salt and pepper and grill it like a steak. Don’t cook too much it will get a bit rubbery I like it medium rare. Enjoy.

    Yeah imo less is more, hot & fast like a loin works well. S&p, maybe some onion and garlic with a little rosemary basted with butter constantly during the seer.🤙🏽

    Check out Meateater on YouTube for a video on how to filet it so you don’t have all the ventricles. I use a meat mallet to beat it down so it’s all the same thickness. Marinade it overnight and cook it hot and fast. Rare to medium rare but if you cook it all the way through, you won’t be able to chew it😉

    Make a stuffing of equal parts onion, mushrooms and hot sausage. Sauté it all. Stuff the heart with as much as you can (makes the heart go farther). Cook in a crockpot with a cup of red wine (sweet or dry). This is our annual valentines dinner, my wife used to be a vegetarian.

    Boil the juice down to concentrate the flavor and serve it over the sliced heart. If you have any leftover, which I doubt, it’s good for breakfast with over easy eggs and sourdough toast. Or make a sandwich with it.
