Pickled Beef Heart


Pickled Beef Heart is very delicious and high in protein. The heart is nothing more than a muscle and is very tender. I know this recipe will probably gross some people out, but I was brought up to try all kinds of food and I love Pickled Beef Heart. Beef Heart can also be used for many other dishes. Beef Heart is about equal in calories and protein to white chicken breast. Three ounces of beef heart is only 140 calories with 24 grams of protein. So you can see it not only tastes good but is good for you. I originally posted this recipe back in 2017 and it has been one of the most looked at recipes I have posted.

    • Isn’t it funny what our mind can do? If people would try things just because it looks good, and not by knowing what it is, they would more than likely love it. I will try anything once but as I get older I am more reluctant to do so..lol

    • When my kids were young and I made something like this I just told them it was chicken…lol They ate everything and still talk about what a bad mom I was doing that…🤣😂🤣😂🤣

  1. A long time ago an older man I worked with gave me his recipe. It was mostly like yours except he also added garlic and brown sugar and did not cut it as small. I used to make it but now seem to have difficulty finding the hearts. I remember it tasting a lot like sauerbraten.

  2. You lost me at “heart,” but I did learn something. LOL!

    I didn’t get to make the Giant Chocolate-Filled Cookie last night because I didn’t have enough butter or margarine on hand and I live too far from a grocery store to make a run. The printed recipe has a prominent place in my kitchen, though, and it will be tried as soon as possible.

  3. I really like the idea of using the whole animal. My kiddos give a hard no to any cuts off the beaten path, so I crack up when they don’t know the translation for their tacos and proclaim tacos made from cow head to be amazing!

  4. I have had beef and bison heart before. It wasn’t bad. I’ve also had bison tongue. It was very good when cooked with onions.
