Ingredients: – venison heart – soy sauce – sesame oil – rice vinegar – brown sugar – green onions – garlic – fresh ginger – sesame seeds

Thaw heart upside down in glass bowl or measuring cup. This will help liquid drain out of the heart.

Trim all outer fat from the heart using a filet/boning knife. Cut vessels from the top of the heart.

With the bottom of the heart (pointed end) facing towards you, run your knife along the vessel that runs diagonally across the front of the heart.

Continue cutting until you remove the entire piece of muscle. This is the left ventricle. Cut the ventricle open until it lays flat like a steak.

Cut open the remaining piece of heart and cut it into 2 separate steak cuts. Remove the heartstrings and other tough connective tissue.

You should be left with 3 steak-like cuts.

Cut meat into ½" strips. Place meat in marinade and stir to coat the meat.

Place meat on skewers in an accordion style and spread the meat out so that you can see the skewers between the meat.

Grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until outsides are lightly charred and the inside is still moist and tender.

Top with sliced green onions and serve with reduced marinade (optional). Enjoy!
