Beef Heart Stew

J. Murphy 0

"This is a very tasty stew, that came from Nova Scotia in the 60's. Beef heart is browned, and then stewed with onions to make a tasty stew that goes great over noodles or mashed potatoes."

Very easy. The smell as it simmers will drive you to drool. I added dried shitake mushrooms.


added small carrots and served over rice. needed a little more taste. put soy sauce on top. it was great. was really easy in pressure cooker.


This is some of the tastiest beef stew I've ever made/eaten. I used three medium-sized hearts and increased the proportions accordingly ... and added a bag of still-frozen green peas to the hot stew at the end. The squeamish (who will probably not be viewing this recipe anyway...) would do well to put aside their reluctance and appreciate the fact that beef heart is nothing more than a big chunk of boneless, relatively lean, meat that cooks up into a very flavorful stew!
