Cooked right, beef heart is fantastically tender. This is a simple recipe that lets the flavour of the beef heart shine through. Great for those that like nose-to-tail eating!
Answer to the above : In my experience no, it cannot get really tender in just one hour. In fact it was still tough as old boots after an hour; after an hour and a half it was still pretty resilient while all the other ingredients had dissolved into a thick mush. I won't be trying this again in a hurry. - 03 Feb 2015

never cooked them this way, I usually cook them whole long and slow on a low heat, in the oven, drizzled in olive oil using a covered dish, they do become very tender but you are talking well over two hours. - 23 Jul 2015
