I'm not sure how it would work with a bear heart but my mom used to pickle the beef hearts whenever we butchered a steer.

I don't believe in superstars
Organic food and foreign cars
I don't believe the price of gold
The certainty of growing old
That right is right and left is wrong
That north and south can't get along

I would cut it into strips and try to keep the grain a short as possible, then cook it very very quickly on a grill. Or, I would cube it and cook in something like a stew which cooks much longer and will soften it. You just want to keep it from turning into shoe leather. Something that works as hard as a heart is going to be tough.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.

The way i use to do deer heart is toss it in the oven in some water with tin foil to almost steam it then salt and pepper im sure there are better ways but i liked it

I googled "cook pork heart", since bear meat is a lot like pork from what I remember, and got a bunch of recipes.

I will say heart is a lot better than kidney.
