"This is a wonderful recipe for beef heart. The meat is cut into strips, browned, and then simmered in a sauce of onion, celery and beef broth. This is terrific served over steamed rice." — Kecia Martens

beef heart - rinsed and cut into thin strips
onions, peeled and thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Worcestershire sauce, or to taste
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.
