I'm the average Joe. I don't eat penis, balls, tongue, brains, whatever. But, after seeing a post of Poser's I thought, by golly, Ima gonna keep me the next deer heart I can get my hands on. You average Joes out there, like me, have got to try it. I have to tell you guys, it was actually very good, in fact, I would call it tender and delicious. I expected a very irony or gamey taste much like liver but it is nothing of the sort. In fact, it was sort of sweet. Here's a couple links for additional info:

http://gocarnivore.com/2012/11/06/heart-of-the-matter/

Disclaimer, I have no idea if I separated everything correctly as instructed in the links above, but I did my best and I do know that what I cooked up was dang good.

The Start

Removing the top/crown of the heart


Slicing Open (Note the Heart Strings)


Better look at the Heart Strings (never really knew such actually existed)


After trimming the fat what I was left with


The goods ready for the skillet


The final product (all it needed was a soft taco shell)



Again, I'm by far NO expert so for those that have tried this don't rip me on my technique. I just kept an open mind and tried it and it was great. I sauteed the veggies for a little bit and then threw the meat in for a quick sautee and man, was I impressed! I will never throw the heart away again (unless it is obliterated by the impact shot)!

You did it right. Now you can try Love in Disguise or Barley, Bone, and Heart Soup with your next one.

That looks great. I might have to try some of that myself.

Looks great! I need to try that sometime if I miss on a heart shot. probably better tasting than liver.

BTW. Those "heart strings" are inside you too. Mitral and Tricuspid valves have those. Chordea Tendineae (the chords) attach the actual valve to the muscle below (papillary muscle)..Think of a guy on a parachute.

I had always heard the saying, "pulling on my heartstrings" but I never knew where it came from until Sunday night. How crazy is that.

Looks like I am not the only one with a degree in medicine/biology!

I will have to try this! Better yet I wanna try it and not tell the wife until after she eats it.
