Like other organ meats, the heart of an elk is dense and rich in iron. It is heavy and thick with a deep maroon tone. There are different ways to prepare elk heart whether you like stews or other recipes, but the most classic way is to prepare it like traditional liver and onions. Knowing how to cook elk heart gives you the ability to make use of the many different parts of the elk while introducing a high amount of protein to a meal.
Slice the elk heart lengthwise in thin slices. 1/4- to 1/8-inch thick slices are adequate. Heart is a chewy meat, so thicker slices may be hard to chew.
