The more you learn about beef heart, the more you will love it too!
From the way we raise our cows (in the pasture and grass-fed) to the way we deliver it to your door (full of the best nutrients for your health).
Beef heart is a muscle like other cuts of steak, but it is denser with a higher nutrient content and additional protein. Beef heart contains lots of essential amino acids, zinc, selenium and phosphorus. It has more than double the elastin and collagen than other cuts of meat and a highly concentrated source of coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10. In addition to this, MayoClinic.com suggests choosing grass-fed beef (like Miller’s Biodiversity Farm beef) rather than grain-fed beef because it may have higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.
One of our favorite beef heart recipes is also the easiest recipe ever. It’s what we like to call “set it and forget it”.
Beef Heart Slow Cooker Recipe
1 beef heart (approximately 1 pound)
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 an onion, sliced
1. Prepare beef heart by trimming fat, and dicing into one inch cubes. How much time you want to take to devein is up to you. We find that once the meat is cooked, the veins are pretty much indistinguishable, so we don’t like to waste much time on this part.
2. Toss into slow cooker, and sprinkle with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and oregano. Stir to coat beef cubes.
3. Top with slices onions.
4. Cook on high for 4-6 hours.
5. Serve over steamed rice, or quinoa, or for a more low carb dish, riced cauliflower.
Our cows have free access to a wholesome and natural diet:
As the seasons allow, our cows are raised in the open pasture or field. They are 100% grass-fed and finished, which means they only eat their natural diet of grasses and what they forage on pasture. In the colder months, they have hay and free choice organic nutrients in the barn. Our cows are NEVER supplemented with grain feed. Our goal is to raise the healthiest and happiest animals possible!
We believe animals should be treated with respect.
Our cows spend almost all of their time at pasture, eating fresh grass when in season. They have the ability to get ample exercise and spend lots of time outside while grazing acres of our beautiful Pennsylvania pastures.
At Miller's Bio Farm our animals are Chemical-Free, Antibiotic-Free, Hormone-Free, and GMO-Free.
A better beef, and a difference you can taste!
The quality of life of our cows comes through in the quality of our beef products. When you order beef from Miller's Bio Farm you can be sure that you are getting the real deal, grass-fed and finished, nutrient-dense, wholesome beef!
