Cleaning out the freezer

So, looking around my freezer for stuff that I either missed this summer, or items that I've been neglecting, I came across some lamb tongue/heart and a nice looking beef heart that was stuck behind a big honking ham. Hence you see all three getting ready for the Crock Pot. Added some Braggs ACV, 10 hours later, they're in refrig waiting to be eaten.

While I know organ meat might not look as tasty as say, a burger or piece of steak, the fact is, it's great meat, cheap, lean and tastes great.

Your call.

I had veal heart last night, sitting atop a sweet potato puree with brussel sprouts and what i was told was cauliflower, but tasted like onions, it was delicious

Re: Cleaning out the freezer

So, how'd you cook it? Heart seems like a good first step towards getting into organs, but I have no idea how to cook one.

i didn't cook it. i went to a restaurant for it. I've never cooked heart, actually. Hopefully jay will pop back in here, but there was beef heart at the 2009 Meatfest.

I believe they threw it in a crock for a day with a little liquid. (i'd assume apple cider vinegar, but i could be wrong.) Afterwards it was cut in slices and then went at it.

when getting into organs, i'd err on the side of young/small animals: lamb, veal, etc. the older/bigger the animals, the tougher the meat usually is.

for what it's worth, i started with chicken liver, but your mileage may vary.

Re: Cleaning out the freezer

You can also slice the heart up and fry it. Give it a light coating of corn meal or flours toss in some grease and cook until it stops bleeding. Freaking delicious. My father and I would always cook up the deer heart that way when we would come in from hunting.

Re: Cleaning out the freezer

I love cleaning out the freezer - I just got back from the store and was digging around in the freezer to make room... and found some deliciousness - 2 packs of bacon, 4 chicken breasts, 10lbs of ground beef and a 3.5kg piece of round roast. I don't know how I forgot about that much meat, but I also am adding another 4.5kg of sirloin roast to it now... Crock pot here I come!
