How to Make Grilled Venison Heart with Peppers and Onions

Step-by-Step

  1. For the heart
    Soak a fresh heart in salted water overnight. Squeeze out all the blood. Cut the vena cavas off slice down the side and open it like a book. Remove the valves and the fibers inside. Turn it over and remove any fatty areas. Slice into strips. Mix the marinade ingredients together and add the meat. Marinade for 24 to 48 hours.
  2. Get a grill really hot. Drizzle the olive oil over the peppers and onions. Sprinkle with salt. Place on a grill basket and place on the grill. Grill until charred and softened.
  3. Add the pieces of venison heart to hot grill. Grill 2 to 3 minutes per side. You don't want to overcook it. Overcooked heart will become tough brown and chewy.
    Cooked it until it is medium rare just warm on the inside.
  4. Serve with peppers and onions.
