Step 1

Cook the bacon. Remove from pan and rough chop.

Healthy saute the mushrooms, garlic and onions in a frying pan with 1/3 c. beef broth. Add bacon to the mix when veggies are cooked.

Clean the heart by trimming off most of the fat and any obvious arteries from the outside. Then stuff all of the frying-pan ingredients into the heart cavity. Really stuff it full and then use toothpicks -- the longer the better -- to hold it together. You can also using cooking twine.

Put the stuffed heart in the crock pot along with the broth and olive oil and some more garlic.

Cook for 11-12 hours on low. Don't skimp on the cooking time, or else you risk ending up with tough rubbery meat. Mine turned out pretty fantastic.

The heart sometimes falls apart because it is so juicy and tender.
