Beef Heart and Ground Beef Burgers


I guess it was only a matter of time before this granddaughter of a butcher got the old meat grinder out and put it to use grinding some pastured beef heart to add to some pastured ground beef.

I got to these bits below (vessels) and I wasn’t sure how to proceed. Include or not?… Since I am eating connective tissue and increasing intake of animal fats I decided to go for it. It took a little more forceful arm pressure to grind through it, but the grinder did not clog.

It was noon and I was hungry, so I shaped a patty and got it cooking pronto in the cast iron skillet. When the patty neared completion, I added some frozen wild blueberries to the skillet. Served the beef and berries up with my cauli faux-tatoes from yesterday drizzled with pesto oil.
