Today was a special day. I finally did something I've wanted to do for a while. I made myself pig heart for dinner.
I followed a recipe online. I braised it for 3 hrs in beef broth and onions. Near the end I added carrots, then tomatoes. It turned out really good and I ate the entire thing. The appearance and texture were different than that of a steak, but, the flavor was good. I let a few of my Danish friends try it as well and they thought it was good as well.
I will definitely make it again. Not only is it higher in protein than regular steaks but it also offers a host of nutrients and amino acids. It is also super cheap because most people probably can't deal with the "ick" factor. I think I'm going to walk back to Super Best and stock up tomorrow.
