Re: lamb hearts

i usually keep mine quite simple and stuff them with breadcrumbs flavoured with plently of garlic, parsley and lemon, then braise them in white wine mixed with a little stock..i found the recipe below on the net...wouldn't mind trying it myself ...see what you think  smile

Stuffed Braised Lamb’s Heart

Serves 4-6

Preparation time: 35 minutes

Cooking time: Under 2 hours


4 prepared lamb’s hearts

8 streaky bacon rashers

For the onion and mushroom stuffing:

40g/1oz butter

1 small onion, peeled and chopped

50g/2oz mushrooms, chopped

75g/3oz sausagemeat

15ml/1tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley

15ml/1tbsp freshly chopped tarragon

Salt and freshly milled black pepper

2.5ml/tsp ground mace

1 small egg, beaten

For the braising sauce:

15ml/1tbsp olive oil

15ml/1tbsp plain flour

200ml/7fl.oz good, hot beef stock

1 x 200g can chopped tomatoes with garlic

Dash Tabasco sauce, optional

100ml/3fl.oz red wine

30ml/2tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley


1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, 180C, 350F.

2. Prepare the stuffing, heat half the butter in a large non-stick pan and cook the onion and mushrooms. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.

3. To make the braising sauce, heat the oil in the same frying pan, add the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Gradually add the stock, tomatoes Tabasco (if used) and wine. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, season and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the parsley, cover and set aside.

4. Season the hearts and spoon the stuffing mixture into the cavity of each. Wrap with the bacon and secure with butcher’s string. Heat the remaining butter in the same frying pan and brown the hearts on both sides. Transfer to a roasting dish.

5. Pour over the sauce, cover and cook for 2 hours, or until the hearts are tender.

6. Remove the butcher’s string, slice and serve with creamy mash and seasonal vegetables.
