Here’s my simple and easy way to cook up the deer heart:

  1. Cut off the ventricles and remove the fatty areas.
  2. Slice the heart into 1/4” steaks or however you prefer
  3. Clean out the inside thoroughly and remove any of the connective tissue.
  4. Place slices in a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat with butter, salt, pepper, garlic, onions, red wine or Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.

Deer heart is high in iron and zinc, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 so there’s health benefits to eating it.
