Video recipe on grilling a beef heart using a Peruvian method. Enjoy!
it gets a bit tough if you let it dry. the texture is very chewy, it’s not
like regular beef, it’s just a little bit rubbery, but not in a bad way,
not because it’s tough meat but because it’s such a tender muscle 😛
it shouldn’t be that tough, but maybe you overcooked it a little. I think
it tastes best when it’s cooked 2 minutes per side, it should be pink
inside and very minimally bloody. the sizes you used were just right, no
need to adjust.
yup grill is a must!! sorry it didnt turn out well.
will try it tonight. whats the song?
You need to remove all the veins and membrane (all that white shiny stuff)
so that you have a nice fillet before you chop it to pieces, as those veins
are very tough to chew on. Also, with beef heart you have to either cook it
on a quickly on a high heat, or slowly on a low heat. If you’re going to
kill an animal, you may as well eat the whole thing I say. Tasty.
i want to make this for a dinner party! whats the texture like? does it get
tough if you over cook it?
I cooked a beef heart for a dinner party. I came out really tough (I did
overcook it). I doubt I’ll be making this again. It was pretty expensive
and I didn’t feel like it was worth the effort. It might have turned out
differently if I marinated it and cooked it on a grill…. but oh well.
grass fed beef is about half the size of normal commercial beef, so
probably closer to veal, it’s definitely not veal, I bought half the cow 😉
that’s it, you used cucumbers instead of potatoes. I’m calling my lawyer
Mmm love anticuchos! Awesome marinade! I heart this 😉
you used guajilo peppers instead of aji panca? you should be sued. j/k
Looks so good! I just prepared mine the same way but with an Asian marinade
(garlic, ginger, onion, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and siracha) so
Probably not much difference using veal heart yeah? I bought one on a whim
at the super market yesterday. I almost kind of wonder… given the size of
the organ you are cutting up in the beginning, and what an adult 1600 pound
cow’s would look like -size, might you be using veal heart too? Life’s
perplexing mysteries… Good video.
I am a fan of “Anticuchos” from La Punta Callao in Perú and at the begining
yes u make sounds like: ” ewww heart? ur nuts” but when u smell it and try
it once u will be laughing after when u realize the great taste u were
