Try this simple and delicious way to cook Pan-Fried Deer Heart. (Even if you don’t like other organs, the heart is delicious!)

I hope you’ll check out the video on how I cleaned the deer heart, as well as a bit of an impromptu discussion with my husband on his favourite cuts of venison. It makes him so sad to hear that people leave the heart in the field. Its not weird like liver or other internal organs…I promise its worth a try!

  1. This is amazing! I have a pic of our hearts from our deer it’s my oldest boys favorite cut. My extended family was quite upset when they found out after they had had deer heart tacos for my son’s birthday (his personal request).
