Grass Fed Beef Heart Stew - Slow Cooker Method

Description

beef heart stew

A ridiculously delicious and economical meal.

Ingredients

1 beef heart (Grassfed 2.5-3lbs, cubed)
1 white sweet potato (Approx 13oz, cubed)
2 carrots (Medium size, cut into coins)
2 plum tomatos (medium-large)
4 celery stalks (chopped)
1tsea salt (Adjust to your taste)
1tblack pepper (fresh ground - or use more)
2 bay leaves
1tparsley (dried - it's what I had!)

Instructions

Trim the beef heart - removing excess fat (you can save it and cook with it - waste not want not!) but leave some in as it creates a nice richness. Remove the extra membranes and silverskin on the meat before cubing it and placing in the slow cooker. On top of the meat, add salt, fresh black pepper, bay leaves, and dried parsley. I chose to make this first stew as simply spiced as possible, but it would also be very good with other traditional herbs added. Considering how well this turned out, I will be exploring all kinds of flavor options. Cube the vegetables and add to the top of the meat. Add in water, cover and cook 8 hours on low or 5-6 hours on high. If going for the low setting, if it cooks a little longer than 8 hours that's usually ok too as long as there's enough water. Enjoy!

Make ahead and reheat too - I don't use microwaves, but this reheats well on the stovetop.
