Actually, "the Hunt" would be the proper place to get feedback on how to prepare and serve wild game.

Moving.....

Health first.

Slice it into 1/2" strips. Grab some flour, and put in some seasoned salt and pepper. Get a bowl with beer together, and dip heart into beer, flour, beer, then flour.

Deep fry until golden brown.

PM me your unflagging thanks :-)

Mine mostly had a bullet put through them so I don't cook them often.

dredge in flour, saute them in olive oil with onions, mushrooms, garlic, salt, and pepper. add red wine and let it reduce by half. Finish with butter.

I boil the heart and then slice it, maybe egg & flour it then fry it golden brown.
Makes a wonderful sandwich to toast over a campfire

We pressure cook ours ( 3 to date this month ) 30 to 40 minutes max , depending on size. She adds onion, pickling spices & vinegar. Incredibly tender and flavorful.

EWWW.

Eating heart violates my Carnivore Rules to Live By (Trademark, Patent Pending). My recipe for heart is:

1)Leave it attached to the rest of the internals.

2)Walk Away.

Deer/Moose/Beef Heart

I mostly just slice heart into about 1/2" slices and fry it slowly in butter. Tastes good, tastes better fried in a cast iron skillet. Tastes even better fried in a cast iron skillet that's on a wood burning cookstove.

Cut deer heart into little small pieces.
Boil for 30 minutes.
Be sure to allow to cool before putting into the dog food bowl, you don't want to burn Fido's lips!

You may want to add 1/2 pound deer liver to the mix, remember, dogs love deer liver!

Clean it well and boil it in water. Just slice it thin and add a little salt & pepper.

RJ, Try as i might, I never hit a heart in all the times my bullet splits the skull or neck...

My buddy and I were out and he shot a little 4 pointer... with a .300 Ultra Mag Man!!! Them guts were red jello! I couldn't hardly tell the difference in heart, liver or lungs... Nothing but red frothy mush in the ol' pump house!

'Cause it was warm, the few deer that were moving were moving. I yelled at my guy for what seemed like 15 or 20 seconds before he stopped for an instant, so I was pretty happy with double-lung from a kneeling position at the distance.

I cooked the heart for the first time this year too. Sliced it, marinated it, tried to dredge it in flour but unfortunately my "batter" just ended up as burnt carbon on my frying pan. The onions and peppers sweetened it a bit. The meat was mild and looked good, but unfortunately I erred on the safe side in preparation and it ended up rubbery.

Perhaps I will try liver next year.

Heart or liver either one, boil in salt & preferred herbs, then smoke. I'll slice the lever before smoking, but only cut the heart in half & slice after smoking.

After smoking eat heart slices as a snack or on a sandwich, but I grind the liver then mix with mayo & onions for a sandwich spread. (I guess grind is not the proper word - I use the wife's food processor)
