ox heart

Thread Starter: soupercook    Started: Sun 22 Oct 2006    Replies: 2

has anyone tried using ox heart as an economical substitute for a Sunday roast!!ask your butcher for the top half [thats all lean] and a piece of fat to lard it with.then cook axactly as your regular beef joint[cook through not pink!!!]average top half of heart weighs about 1.3 kg igive it about 2 hours.it,s as tasty as any topside joint when carved and at a fraction of the cost
