Warm Beef Heart Salad with Herbed Vinaigrette

Labels: { , , }

Beef heart is an inexpensive and flavourful meat that does not taste like organ meat, but rather like a lean cut of steak. It is more dense with a higher nutrient content and additional protein. Beef heart contains all essential amino acids, zinc, selenium and phosphorus. It has more than double the elastin and collagen than other cuts of meat and a highly concentrated source of coenzyme Q10. The beef heart is versatile and easy to prepare. It does well to either quick stirfry or long stewing.

Vinaigrette
  • 800 g Beef heart, trimmed and cut into strips
  • 3 tbsp Ghee or as needed
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 pc Fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • Black salt or regular sea salt as needed
  • Freshly milled tri-coloured peppers to taste
  • Pinch of arrowroot starch
  • 3 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Black salt
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • Bell peppers, radicchio, Belgium endive, as needed
  1. Trim the beef heart by removing all of the spongy and artery looking things from the heart. Slice or cube if desired.
  2. On a large skillet, heat over medium- low heat and add in the ghee. Once the ghee melts, add in minced garlic. Stir briefly. Add in sliced beef heart and ginger. Cook for 5 minutes or until the meat is medium rare (or longer if you want it a little more cooked). Season with black salt and freshly milled peppers, then add in the arrowroot starch. Swivel so that the starch circulates and is blended to thicken the meat.
  3. For the vinaigrette, combine the vinegar, shallot and salt and allow to sit for 5 or 10 minutes. Stir in the remaining herbs.
  4. Arrange the bell peppers, radicchio and belgium endive on plates. Top with some stirfried beef heart slices and drizzle some vinaigrette over. Serve immediately.

I don't believe I've ever had beef heart. I used to see it in the butcher case at supermarkets all the time when I was a kid; been ages since I've seen it outside of a specialty butcher shop, though. This looks good -- should give it a try. Thanks!

I am sitting here trying to think if I ever had beef heart in culinary school... and I don't believe I did! Shame, right?! Obviously I need to correct that and make this salad immediately! So gorgeous, Angie!!!! Cheers!

I've never had it nor seen it sold here, Angie! Your description of it tasting like a fine cut of steak would certainly make we want to try it if I need see it though. What a beautiful way to serve it!
