Beef Heart

This delicious, lean meat has a taste and texture that’s very similar to steak – and it takes well to any seasoning or marinade. It’s also used to make anticuchos, aka beef heart skewers – a popular street food in Peru. You can even grind the meat and make it into burgers! Once heart has been trimmed, it can be braised in wine, left to simmer in the slow cooker, added to a stew or grilled to medium-rare doneness (135ºF).
