Delicious Heart of Venison


  • 1 deer heart
  • 5 strips bacon
  • 2 cups tomato juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 5 whole cloves
  • pinch of cinnamon


Place tomato juice, water, and spices in the bottom of a steamer kettle. Put the heart with bacon strips over it in the top of the steamer. Cover tightly and steam slowly for 3 hours, or until a fork inserted in the meat comes out easily. Chill the heart thoroughly, then slice thin and serve cold. Strain the cooking liquid and use it as a base for Venison Stew.
