Some of my previous posts have alluded to all the weird things I have eaten in the past few years in addition to the importance of organ meats in our diet. However, lets face it, liver tastes so gross! I have tried to like it, tried to sneak it, and tried to plug my nose and swallow! I just haven’t found any way to eat it that I actually like. To me, you need to like your food! So, there are no recipes that I have created with liver, although I have not given up. ;)
That leads me to my burgers! One thing I have been able to use successfully and not even notice is beef heart. I got a meat grinder for Christmas and have been thinking to myself ever since about what I am possibly going to use it for. I ordered some heart from my last meat pick up and decided ground heart it is. I told myself I was going to mix with ground beef and see what happens. Ummm…amazing happened!
Beef heart burgers
- Combo of ground beef and ground beef heart
- couple splashes of worcestershire sauce
- a few hefty dashes of garlic powder
- a few hefty dashes of red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper
You should try this…organ meat is full of nutrients! If you don’t, I won’t hold it against you. However, you may want to inquire what your burger is made of at the next backyard BBQ at my house!
