Hearts of Darkness: Steve Rinella's Stuffed Moose Heart Recipe

Hearts of Darkness: Steve Rinella's Stuffed Moose Heart Recipe


When the skin comes off, hunters know the drill: shoulders, loins, neck, brisket, ribs, sirloin and rump roast.

Outside of an in-the-field right of passage practiced by some, many of us wouldn't consider the heart to be table fare. But what if there was a delicious recipe that made the normally disposed of organ a delectable treat? Well, we have one.

We asked renowned hunter, chef and television host Steven Rinella from "MeatEater" to bring you a special game recipe for the hearts of hoofed beasts.

"One of my favorite episodes this season includes the consumption of five different hearts from animals I hunted over the previous year. We call this episode "Hearts of Darkness" and we think you'll find the methods pretty interesting — and tasty. Below is the recipe for one of those hearts, the voluminous glory that is a stuffed moose heart," said Rinella.

Though Rinella uses moose heart, the recipe works great with any hoofed animal, so save your deer hearts this season.

Be sure to tune in for the "Hearts of Darkness" episode this Thursday, Sept. 11, at 8 p.m. E/P on the Sportsman Channel.
