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.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 medium beef heart, rinsed and cubed
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Dredge the beef heart in flour until coated. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Fry the pieces of heart until browned. Stir in onions and water. Season with salt and seasoning salt. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 2 to 3 hours, or until the meat is very tender. Serve over noodles or mashed potatoes.
This recipe can also be made in a pressure cooker. Once the beef has browned, transfer to a pressure cooker, and add remaining ingredients. Cook for 45 minutes.
