Brenneman Farms Beef heart is lean, containing very little fat and is incredibly nutrient-dense. Heart is tough and requires a mild cooking method, but the beef lover will be delighted with its pronounced meaty flavor. Before cooking, slice off the fat pockets, which you can render into beef tallow for cooking. You can grill it, slice it thinly and bread and fry it, pan sear it, or throw it into a hearty stew. It can even make for a delicious, juicy burger. The flesh of the heart is not fatty, so it can mix with fatty ground beef in hamburgers. If used in stew, it will take on a tougher texture than other bits of meat. Consuming beef heart has many health benefits. It's rich in folate, iron, zinc, and selenium. It has several B-vitamins, which can protect you against heart disease.
