    Venison heart recipe?

    Looking for one to try, I'd like to get the missus to have a go too so I'm thinking something a little more intricate and gourmet than just fried. Ideally something that would leave her not knowing she was eating a heart until after the meal when I tell her!
    Dont mind something a little complicated - I've stuffed up plenty of meals so I reckon I can have a fair crack at ruining this as well.

    Cheers in advance,

    yeh thanks for that, reckon I've got the sacrificial removal of the heart part down pat, just the post removing a beating heart part I'm working on getting better.

    Here is one I have used for a bullock heart and it should work very well. Just remember that the heart is pure muscle and needs a coating of something( I used caul) to stop it from drying out whilst roasting If no caul, use fatty bacon strips to lard it.

    1 x heart ..of course.
    125 fresh breadcrumbs
    60 grms suet, chopped or butter softened.
    1 tbsp chopped parsley
    1 tsp sweet marjoram
    1 tsp of grated lemon rind
    grated nutmeg
    salt
    pepper
    1 x egg yolk
    60 grms of fatty bacon if using to lard the heart instead of caul, If caul available sufficient to encase the heart totally
    red wine.

    In a bowl mix the breadcrumbs, suet, parsley, marjoram lemon rind, nutmeg salt pepper and the egg yolk. Stuff the heart with this mixture

    Lard the heart or encase it in caul.

    Into an oven proof dish and bake in a preheated oven at 230 c for 5 minutes then reduce the heat to 190 c and bake another 45 minutes.

    Whilst baking, check to ensure that the stuffing does not escape from the heart which is why caul is the better casing than bacon strips.

    Pour the wine into the dish and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove and slice the heart, then lay the slices on a serving dish over which the strained cooking liquid is used as a gravy.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Jack PM @Angus. He will sort you..
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    QUESTION:::::::::Not being a deer hunter, do deer have caul?

    Caul fat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Most animals have it to a larger or lesser degree with pigs being the best producer I have found..

    Best one I ever saw.


    As part of animal deconstruction process. When you get to the part that has the heart remove heart then hold up in your strong arm.

    Admire and say wow ..

    (This is of course depending on whether you are a left hand drive or right hand drive model.)

    Back up towards (but not too close) to a cliff or the deadliest drop off this side of the black swamp. Do not take that one backwards step too many !!

    Throw heart backwards over dominant arm shoulder as hard as is humanly possible off cliff or deadly formidable drop off with eyes tightly closed whilst humming as loud as you possibly can
    so you don't have a single hope in hell of knowing where it landed.

    Finish cleaning animal and carry out then enjoy a well earned beer. (or two even)

    Yes, in abundance ... breaks my heart having to chuck it away most of the time, but it really needs to go in the fridge straight away...

    Angus As post


    Ended up grinding the liver and heart, adding plenty of mixed spice, oats, caramalized onion and garlic, made them into rounds, poached them in clarified butter and served with a warm apple and chilli salad and garlic puree.

    BH, here is my recipe for venison heart..

    cut the interior of the heart so you have room to place the stuffing...grate one apple, one small onion and blend with breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper. Using toothpicks close the heart, and place in foil. Roast gently. Make a gravy with the juices in the foil...put through a blender to make the gravy especially fine.

    It is delicious.
    ...amitie, respect mutuel et amour...

    ...le beau et le bon, cela rime avec Breton!...

    St. John, probably the best known offal based restaurant in the world, serves grilled ox heart. I imagine this recipe would work with venison heart.

    The heart is trimmed of fat, sinew, fibres and capillaries. It is then sliced very finely them marinated overnight in a mixture of thyme, garlic, olive oil and pickled walnut vinegar. It is them grilled for seconds over white hot coals and served with tossed watercress leaves.
