Another Korean Broiled Favorite
A number of Pacific Rim cuisines broil Heart, with a result which is similar to Beef Steak, at a fraction of the price. Usually a little extra preparation is required, to tenderize the Meat. This Korean version is very simple:
Broiled Heart 구이 심장
1 pound Beef Heart
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Prepared Sesame Seed — see separate recipe on this site
½ teaspoon ground Black Pepper
1 – 2 Green Onions
1 – 2 cloves Garlic
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Oil, preferably Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon Flour
First clean the Heart and cut it into thin slices about 3 inches square.
Combine the Mixture and put the Meat slices in a dish, cover with the Mixture and let stand from 1 to 3 hours.
When ready to cook, broil quickly until no longer pink over a hot charcoal fire or gas grill and serve immediately. Alternatively, this dish may be fried in a small amount of hot oil. In that case, the Korean cook will typically fry the Heart slices until well browned, then add a bit of water, cover and steam until quite tender, about another 10 minutes.
