Beef heart is a delicious, versatile cut. Dark in color, Wagyu heart is dense and has a rich, iron-y tang. It’s also lean, which makes it a great cut for if you’re watching your fat intake.
Whether you want a quick dish or to take time for a stew, heart is an outstanding choice. You can cook beef heart quickly: Just heat oil in your skillet, dust the Wagyu cutlets in flour, salt, and pepper, and fry them up. Add a salad or steamed vegetables, and you’re set with a delicious, healthy meal. For a stew, quickly brown the heart and substitute it for whatever other meat your recipe calls for. It also makes a fantastic luncheon meat: Just fry or roast it, slice it thin, and add your choice of trimmings and condiments.
