Try this grilled beef heart recipe from Food & Wine Magazine's People's Best New Chef Jamie Bissonnette.
Grilled Beef Heart
1 beef heart (about 2 pounds)
Open the heart up, and trim out the shiny parts of silver skin. Cut into 2-ounce steaks. Marinate with the garlic, crushed, thyme, olive oil, and vinegar 4 hours up to 2 days.
When ready, pre-heat a grill. Grill the hearts to medium. Let rest until room temperature. Slice as thin as possible against the grain.
Slice baguette, grill the bread, then rub it with a garlic clove and brush with oil. Then top the toast with some sliced heart, and a dollop of Romesco and a drizzle of olive oil.
