I've had heart twice now and both times the texture was a little rubbery. Not ever going to be a favorite.

Don't over cook the heart and trim and tough looking exterior. My family loves it sautéed and served with eggs with breakfast.

I watched a youtube video and the guy said cook 2 minutes per side, but that seems too long (?). I doubt I did more than 90 seconds per side and it still came out well done.

What do you mean by sauteed? How would that differ from frying like an egg?

Move it around not just sit in one place in the pan.

my mom used to german fry (what she called it anyway)... dredge in flour, a little salt & pepper, skillet with enough oil (she used bacon grease) to cover bottom of skillet, low heat, place thin slices in skillet, put a lid on it (kinda steaming effect) for a few minutes until flour in grease starts to brown, flip and cover again. once all the meat is cooked, you have the makings for gravy already in the skillet. She used similar method for both heart & liver.

season the slices of heart with tony's , then dredge in flour. Heat up some bacon grease (enough to cover the pan in about 1/8") oh med high till it sizzles a pinch of dry flour. Ease slices in one at a time and flip when they start to curl. Repeat.

I LOVE doing this.. made a believer out of my friends and even the GF!

Tried the liver once.. don't think I'll do that again.

Heart isn't bad at all. Never tried the liver. I love good FRESH CLEAN fried chicken livers, but that's all ive tried.

I made deer liver and onions for the first time this year. I sliced the liver about 1/2" thick, soaked it in milk for 2-3 hours, dusted it flour and Tony's and fried it in onion infused bacon fat. I served it with sauteed onions and a thin brown gravy.

It was delicious. It tasted liked really good calf liver. My wife even liked it and she hates liver and onions.

I love it fried up just like you described. it's much more mellow than beef... of course, the deer's diet may come into play. but the ones I've fried up have been great.

My son shot a youg doe and liver looked and smelled great. No discoloration or smell whatsoever. Deer liver and onions will be an annual tradition for use.
