    Question for you Men & Women hunters. My father in law loves venison heart and i'm looking for ways to cook it for him. Thanks

    Same here.

    I'll also cut it up in small pieces, brown then toss in chili.

    Pan fry in bacon grease and sprinkle Italian breadcrumbs over it while frying.

    Put carrots, onion, celery, and heart in water and let simmer on stove top for 4 hours. Place pot in refrigerator overnight.

    Next day, remove heart from broth, shred it, add quality barbecue sauce, heat, and serve on a bun. Best accompanied by baked beans and potato chips.

    Grilled. Montreal steak seasoning. Sear at 500F+ for a minute on each side.

    Usually just fry it up or pickle it.

    Salt, pepper, and pan fried in the good olive oil. Can't beat simple. Actually, next one I cook, possibly tomorrow, I'll try Steve Rinella's bush method of wrapping it in that lacey fat, skewering it, and roasting over a fire!

    Got 3 in the freezer, now could of had more had I stayed at camp. Seems nobody has a problem giving up their deers tongue. Most of em give me the hearts too.

    I watched the MeatEater video on that yesterday! The 4 hours of blanching turned me off. I'm a busy guy.

    I did also watch his video on butter-nuts, as I believe he coined it, and then I went back out there and popped the nuts out. That's on the menu this week!

    My cousin just tried the nuts recipe from meateater. He said they weren’t bad at all, and the pics he sent looked good. I’m gonna try it if I can get a buck on the ground.

    Hearts are easy, best done simply. Clean it up, core it out, and slice it ip. After that, S+P is the choice for me.

    Sliced thin, dredged in spices, fried in a hot skillet. I’ve tried other ways, but this is my favorite

    Roll it in frying magic and fry it in butter. It's best done after the Grandson goes home so I can get more than one piece.

    I had moose heart once but didn't like it so I never tried deer. I read that the trick is to cut all the fat off so all you have is flesh. Ive been meaning to try some.
