Who's tried it, and who actually enjoys it?
Well, curiosity got the best of me. I will say it packs a lot of flavor, but 99% of it ended up in the trash. Just couldn't get passed "eating heart."

I have eaten it a few times, its not bad, but has an iron taste to it.

Unless im looking at the pic wrong you probably could have cut it differently to get a more tender bite. Favorite way is pan fried with gravy.

How he heart is laying in the top picture, slice horizontal, making rounds out of it trim and that will give you your best cross grain cut.

Its much better imo if you trim off the fat and then slice thinly and cook over mesquite charcoal. Some of the best meat imo. The cut is going to have a lot to do with flavor and texture.

I actually cooked one on sunday. cut the top off, butterflied, marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, parsley and celery leaves. Grilled over very hot coals, rare. Damn fine.
From this cookbook. If you like wild game check it out

no telling how much deer heart I have eaten. My mom used to slice thin, roll in seasoned flour, put in a skillet with a little bacon grease over low and put lid on. cook for 8-12 minutes, remove lid, flip (flour browned) and replace lid for another 8-12 minutes. similar to liver.

I've never had heart that tasted like liver the way I cook it. I don't like livers taste, smell or texture.

Deer heart makes really good fajitas. It's just not very big so it doesn't go far. I usually make scrapple from the heart and liver. My family makes a recipe almost just like this one.. http://www.food.com/recipe/deerhunters-scrapple-143284 We just use bacon fat instead of butter and use Tony Chachere's for seasoning.
