Beef Heart Meatloaf Muffins

Want to get more organ meat into your diet in a tasty way? You gotta try these delicious beef heart meatloaf muffins.

We like to use as much of the animal that we can when we cook. Respect the whole animal like they used to back in the day. So, I have been experimenting with organ meats. They definitely have a different flavor profile, but their nutritional content keeps me experimenting. Organ meats are some of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. Plus, they cost a fraction of the price of regular meats. So naturally I had to sneak some into Beef Heart Meatloaf Muffins!

Because it is a muscle meat, heart is very similar to steak, roasts and ground beef, but is typically less expensive (we blame the “ick” factor for that!) and actually has a higher protein content. In addition, heart is an excellent source of a number of nutrients, including thiamin, folate, selenium, phosphorus, zinc, CoQ10 and several of the B vitamins. In addition, beef heart contains amino acids that are thought to improve metabolism and compounds that promote the production of collagen and elastin (source)

  1. I loved the Cultured Caveman’s (in Portland, Oregon) meatloaf with heart or liver (or maybe both) in it. Many thanks! I know we will love it and I like that you popped it into muffin tins, very travel-friendly! I commute a long way to work on public transit and bring my lunch every day so this is not only great as a dinner option but I *should* have some left for lunches too.
