Steven Rinella Shows Us How to Cook Deer Heart Tacos in the Field

There’s nothing like cooking up a piece of game meat in the field and these deer heart tacos look delicious.

Steven Rinella is an expert at preparing game meat from recently harvested animals almost immediately after killing them.

In this video, Rinella utilizes an often discarded edible organ, the deer heart, along with an almost never used deer part, caul fat, to make a southwestern dish in the southwest field.

Watch to see if this is something you would like to prepare with your next deer kill.

If you would like to try this recipe for yourself, know that the caul fat is the veiny looking fatty lining that surrounds a deer’s stomach and intestines. For most hunters, this piece of the deer ends up in the gut pile (along with the deer heart.)

By utilizing these two edible parts of a deer you’ve harvested, you’ll be sure that nothing is going to waste and you can hunt with a clean conscience.

What do you think? Are you ready to give deer heart tacos a try this season?
