Beef heart with garden vegies

Heart is a strong meat that can get tough. I found that by rinsing and trimming it carefully and slow cooking it, it becomes nice and tender.
Hope others like it.

Serves:

5-6 depending on your appetite.

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

8 Hr

Ingredients

1
beef heart( check local butcher or farmers markets)
1 large
onion
4-5
whole fresh carrots
4-5
potatoes (about 1 per person)
salt and pepper
2-3 clove
garlic
1-2 tsp
italian seasoning
12-15 oz
tomato sauce
12-15 oz
water to cover

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Check the heart to be sure it has been rinsed completely. I cut it in half so I can be sure there is no remaining blood pools. Trim excess fat from the outside and remove as much of the large veins as you can since they tend to be tough. This is the labor intensive part.
2
wash and clean the vegies. Peel them if you wish. Cut all vegies into chunks like you would for a beef stew. place heart into the pot, surround it with the vegies. I like to cut slits in the meat for the garlic cloves.
3
Add the tomato sauce ( or paste if you prefer), and water to cover. add in the seasonings.
Cover and set your crockpot to high. I start mine in the morning around 9-10AM and figure on serving the meal that evening.
4
If you like your vegetables less soft, hold some of them for later. I like them soft and cooked all day to integrate all the flavors.
You can use other types of beef with this recipe too.
