  • Trim the tough outer layer from the beef heart on a work surface using a fillet knife. Cut beef into 1/2-inch wide strips.

  • Whisk mustard, steak sauce, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and rosemary together in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag (such as Ziploc®). Add beef skewers, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove beef from marinade and discard marinade. Thread beef onto skewers.

  • Cook beef skewers on the preheated grill until well browned and firm to the touch, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

The beef heart has many little segments that can naturally be divided into bite-sized pieces. Just cut into 1/2-inch wide strips to the best of your ability.
