Beef heart skewers - Anticuchos de Corazon
We then got the idea to record our own version... warning, it's not nearly as interesting and gets a bit redundant towards the end as I'm not very quick.
After the prep I marinated the heart filets in the following overnight.
5 cloves of garlic mashed
one large handfull of fresh parsley chopped fine
1/4 cup of sherry vinegar
tablespoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of pimenton
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1/4 cup olive oil
After soaking the skewers in water for a couple of hours (a step I usually forget causing them to catch fire) I threaded the meat on.
I tried to keep them a uniform size for cooking purposes.
I set the rice cooker up so we could have some white rice with it and went out to grill
They turned out very good with very tender flavorful beef taste, I would certainly make it again even though it requires a lot of prep. The kids really liked it, which makes me wonder if they were more into it as they were involved in the prep and anticipation of eating it.
