Lamb Heart


Lamb heart is highly nutritious and rich in flavour. Adventurous cooks should consider this cut as, with a bit of skill and care, it can create absolutely sensational dishes. Lamb heart must be cooked slowly. We suggest braising it with onion, carrot and celery for a couple of hours. You can then stuff with herb and sausage before roasting to finish. Offal when done well is absolutely delicious and very good for you.

It is a good idea to introduce different cuts into your repertoire, as making the most of each animal is more sustainable for the environment.


When choosing a cut of lamb, look for firm, fine-grained meat with a velvety texture; it should be moist, rather than dry or slimy. We work with traditional expert butchers to make sure that every cut is of the highest standard, helping with flavour, ease-of-cooking, and presentation.


The Black Farmer works with the best local suppliers. We source highest-quality lamb from the South West of England, which is fed on grass and free to graze the lush fields that abound in the area.  We show our passion for high welfare by promoting traditional farming methods and encouraging a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This approach reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.


Our lamb heart is vacuum packed to keep the meat fresh for longer. It is also suitable for home freezing, just be sure to defrost thoroughly before cooking. The easiest way is simply to leave in the fridge overnight.

Here’s cooking instruction for lamb hearts:

1. Preparation: Start by cleaning the lamb hearts thoroughly. Remove any excess fat and trim off any tough membranes or blood vessels. Rinse them under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
2. Marination (optional): If desired, marinate the lamb hearts to enhance their flavor. You can use a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and your choice of herbs or spices. Place the hearts in a resealable bag or a shallow dish, pour the marinade over them, and let them marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
3. Preheat the grill or pan: If you’re grilling the lamb hearts, preheat the grill to medium-high heat. If you’re using a pan, preheat it over medium heat and add a small amount of oil or butter.
4. Cooking: Cook the lamb hearts for about 3-4 minutes per side on the grill or in the pan until they are browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Lamb hearts are typically best when cooked to medium-rare or medium, but you can adjust the cooking time according to your preference.
5. Resting: Once cooked, remove the lamb hearts from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more tender and flavorful meat.
6. Serving: Slice the lamb hearts into thin pieces and serve them as a main dish or as part of a larger meal. They can be enjoyed on their own, served with a side of vegetables or salad, or incorporated into other recipes like stews or kebabs.

Remember to adjust cooking times based on the size and thickness of the lamb hearts. It’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare or 160°F (71°C) for medium. Enjoy your lamb hearts!
