Continental Style Goat Heart

Goat heart cooked in a creamy cheesy gravy

I’m one of those people who believes we should eat all parts of the animal and waste nothing. So eating offal isn’t really a big deal for me and I find it quite tasty. I think from all the offal, hearts are my favourite. As a child I used to fight with my brother for the chicken heart but we never really ate goat heart. With me getting back into cooking regularly and visiting various butcher shops I finally picked up goat heart when I saw it was available and boy of boy was it ever so delicious. I cooked it in 2 different ways, one an Indian tawa fry style and the other this continental style in a creamy cheesy sauce with bell peppers. Needless to say, this one is my favourite.

Cooking with heart

Goat heart doesn’t take very long to cook. It’s best pan fried in my opinion. There is are some rubbery ends that you need to trim off but apart from that it’s really tender and you can cook it like a steak. The longer you cook it (after it’s cooked through) the more it will dry out. If you’ve cooked chicken hearts then it’s almost the same except you cook it a bit longer since it’s a much bigger piece of meat. I personally prefer to chop it up into small bite size pieces and cook it as compared to cooking the whole heart.

    I just found your blog and I am so excited to try some of your recipes. We raise goats and some are up for slaughter soon. Thanks for posting goat heart recipes! I am always looking for good ways to prepare the odd bits.

      My pleasure Nico and I love that you raise your own meat and probably use up all the bits. I got a great recipe for Goat Testicles as well. That’s on youtube though, not had time to put it here on the website. Have a look when you can. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFl7jAYp80Y
