Beef Heart is inexpensive and lean, but it's unusual to find in the grocery. My recipe is the only version I know of that is southwest style, in fact, this is fusion cuisine, because this is not an authentic southwest recipe. Mole adds a wonderful richness to this dish. You might want to make a pan of cornbread, it's great with this. Serve with red wine, and a salad of jicama, cabbage, and celery.

  • Remove vegetables to a plate to make room, and place the beef heart in the pan, adding a bit more oil if necessary. Saute over medium heat until browned. Return the onion mixture to the pan, sprinkle in the cumin and beef bouillon. Pour in the red wine, mole sauce, and enough water to cover. Put the lid on the pan, and simmer over low heat for 2 hours.

  • Add the parsnip and potato to the stew, and stir in the beans. Continue to simmer for another 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender. I hope you enjoy making and eating my creation.
