November 2017 Featured Chef Aimee Wilson of OneFullPlate.com shares this wonderful organ meat recipe, Beef Heart Stir Fry. Organ meats are some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. Beef heart contains higher levels of zinc, selenium, and phosphorus as well as collagen and CoQ10. If you’re having trouble imagining yourself eating organ meats, start out with a recipe like this one. Once you try it you’ll likely be hooked on the nutritional value as well as the rich flavor.

- 1 Grass Fed Beef Heart from US Wellness Meats
- 1/4 cup of Coconut Secret Garlic Coconut Aminos Sauce
- 1 tbsp of Organic Sesame Seeds
- 1 heaping tbsp of fat you have handy (we have a mug full of bacon fat we use)
- 1 spiralized whole Organic Zucchini
- 1 cup of chopped or sliced Organic Purple Sweet Potatoes
- 1/2 cup of Diced Organic Onions
- 1 cup of Tri-Colored Organic Carrots
- 1 pinch of pink salt and pepper
- 1 tsp of Organic powdered ginger
- 1 pinch of Arrowroot starch to thicken
- 1 tbsp of Fish Sauce (I like Red Boat the best)
Instructions For Beef Heart Stir Fry:
- Start trimming your beef heart; meaning remove all of the spongy and artery looking things from the heart (it will feel gross, but you need to grasp it or you’ll cut yourself). Throw away all non “raw steak” looking particles and cut/cube up the heart. There should be about 1-1.5 cups worth.
- On a large skillet, heat to medium low heat and add in the fat. Once the fat becomes see thru, add in the sweet potatoes, carrots, and onions.
- Toss so all get coated in fat and let the potatoes, carrots, and onions cook until al dente (should be about 15-20 min)
- Turn down the heat until low and add in the cubed beef heart, ginger, salt, coconut aminos, and fish sauce to the skillet
- Let cook for about 8-10 minutes or until the meat is medium rare (or longer if you want it a little more cooked) then add in the arrowroot starch
- Swivel so that the starch circulates and is blended to thicken
- Grab a handful of zucchini noodles into a bowl, spoon a big scoop from the skillet on top, and sprinkle the sesame seeds. Voila!
