I tried my first deer heart from a doe I killed in archery season. I had no idea how to get the meat ready for cooking so I basically just rinsed out the chambers, removed the crown and sliced the heart about 1/4 inch thick across the grain. Garlic salt and seasoned salt and fried one minute on each side in olive oil. Delicious is an understatement.

Even better than deer is bear heart. No longer will I discard this prime piece of meat.

BTW what is the primary purpose of removing the "heart strings"?

Because they are chewy and inconsistent with the texture if the muscle

You did great BA, for yrs. I always gave the heart and tongues to a old lady down the road, we kept the livers for ourselves. She passed away a few yrs. back and I started processing the heart as well. My son thinks it is as good or better than the tenderloins..................lol.

I tend to agree with your son. I couldn't imagine a muscle that is constantly working could be so tender.

Deer heart is my favorite "cut". I love simply putting salt and pepper on it then searing in some butter with some chopped garlic.

Dang it's good!

After one of poser's posts, I tried some deer heart this past season as well. Very good.

Yours looked fantastic.
