  1. Roll the strips of beef heart in flour to coat. Reserve flour. Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the beef lightly in the butter. Add the onion, and saute for about 5 minutes, then add celery and just enough beef broth to cover the ingredients in the pan. Cover the pan, and simmer for one hour over low heat.
  2. Mix the reserved flour with water to make a paste. Stir into the meat mixture. Season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until sauce is thickened, then serve hot over rice or noodles.

I thought that it was very easy to make. I actually had time to myself while it simmered. My whole family loved it they finished everything the same night. Of course I loved it to.

I would not consider this Chop Suey, it is more like a stroganoff. I doubled the Worcestershire sauce, and the flour. I added an extra cup of beef broth as well. I omitted the celery. I increased cook time to 1 1/2 hours. It was very tender and delicious and I served it on rice. I think it is critical to cut the meat thin. I added a picture to show the final outcome.

The heart came out really chewy, maybe if I had simmered it for another hour. The wortchestershire sauce is also a must, the sauce is kinda bland without it.

I was hesitant to try this at first because I never ate organ meat before. However, after making this recipe, I was disappointed that I did not see beef heart at my next trip to the grocery store because I wanted to make it again. This definitely works well served over rice.
