Shh, don't tell my kids I put HEART in the Not So Sloppy Joes!

 Oh Yes I Did!!

Grass-fed beef heart is full of amazing nutrition.
  • Beef heart has very concentrated levels of CoQ10, B vitamins, folic acid, Selenium, Phosphorus, Zinc, and Amino Acids that help burn fat, store energy and boost stamina and endurance.
  • More on CoQ10 in beef heart: it is highly protective against cancer and is found only in animal foods. CoQ10 is a substance present in every cell in the body and essential for cell production, we need a lot for good health and can get 40% of our daily requirement with 1 serving of heart. It protects our heart, improves problems with our gums, and has an affect on many different diseases. (Copied from You Can Eat Beef Heart - Kelly the Kitchen Kop)

In case you are looking for the Not So Sloppy Joe recipe - here you go!

This totally Works for Me!


  1. I don't think I have tried that. Sounds scary.

  2. Lolol I love the taste of heart. I once snuck an entire buffalo heart into bolognese sauce I made for a dinner party. Everyone loved it until I told them what I'd done... and then half the people thought it was cool, where a few looked like they were going to throw up :D

  3. tigerfish - not so scary - it was actually very good!

    fairybekk - ROFLMAO!!! I love it! A great bolognese sauce hides lots of things but I have never thought to use heart - oh, I am so using it there next!

  4. This is so good to know! I don't often like organs, but if I didn't know it, I'd be just fine with it!

  5. You are so sneaky! That is totally cool - and funny...

  6. how sneaky but great, we have tried heart and we enjoyed the meal very much


  7. :) I'd totally eat these because they had heart in them, yum!

    And I don't think I'd be very good at keeping the secret, either. I'd have to spring it on 'em after they'd finshed eating. Kind of like how when someone gobbles up an entire plate of mashed potatoes, and tell me they're the best they've ever had, only then do I tell them it's because they contain a pound of butter and cream on top of that! Fun times.

  8. Hello,

    Our Grass-fed farmer offers a ground meat mix with organs like liver and heart. It takes great in burger and meatloaf. I will try it with Slopy joe's next time.

    Great site!

    Many blessings.


  9. I am sure grass fed beef heart has a great flavor, but I don’t know if I could eat that. I do however only eat grassfed beef. I work with La Cense Beef, which is an approved USDA grass fed program. The ranch is located in Montana and consumers can order beef directly from the website and have it delivered to them.

  10. Bonnie - slowly, I have to slowly add stuff like heart into our diets.

    W - my kids totally know I put "weird stuff" in just about everything - so absolutely I will 'fess up - just kinda waiting for them to ask LOL!

    Mely - what a great idea I wonder if my processor would do that?

  11. hmmmm dont know if i could do that ... just had a not so pleasant meal with aligator so my experimenting with food is just a bit off right now.

  12. LMAO...I won't tell ;) You know, I think heart may be one of the only pieces of offal that I haven't tried. Sounds good!!

  13. I wonder what it tastes like, though. I've researched about coq10 and found out that there's a ubiquinol supplement (which is the reduced form of coq10). is there a natural food source of ubiquinol?

  14. William - I am not familiar with ubiquinol but I don't think there is a natural form of it. Thanks for stopping by - oh, and my kids never noticed the taste.
