New Zealand Free-Range Lamb Hearts (1kg)

Horizon Farms

LB291


One full bag of lamb hearts totaling at about 1kg (2.2lbs). The finest New Zealand quality - you will notice that there is no unpleasant odor. There are 4-5 hearts per pack. The heart is a muscle and nutritionally similar to steaks or roasts. However, hearts have a higher amount of protein, B vitamins, selenium, CoQ10, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. It is said that 100g of heart, provides more than 200% of your B12 daily requirement! When it comes to preparation, stuffing, and then slow braising lamb hearts is the most popular cooking technique.

Using the whole animal is a practice that is still common in many countries around the world and is gaining momentum within the (health) conscious carnivore community. We at Horizon Farms we strongly believe in the whole animal butchery where less sought-after parts are also offered so nothing goes to waste. Usually - due to their low market price value, offals and less sought after cuts are sold domestically within the export country, and seldomly make it into export. 

New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb takes it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. This is the finest lamb available. If you have never tried lamb or had a bad experience with lamb in the past we urge you to give New Zealand premium quality lamb a try. Our lamb comes from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand.

We'll enjoy eating this. Thank you very much.

Translated from Japanese: I wanted to eat as well, but it’s very helpful to have a dog, too. I boiled it, removed the lye, and after that, you can season the meat to your liking and give the unseasoned parts to your dog. Thank you for the quick delivery. (The photo was from the process of boiling.)

The taste is very delicious

Translated from Japanese: The shape is a little like a heart itself, and it feels like a science anatomy until you get used to it, but it's very delicious just by grilling it in a frying pan. It’s mainly for my dogs, but I ate a little of it, too. The dogs love it more than any other high-class meat, and the dog next door will come to see when I start grilling it. The difficulty is that there are several big hearts in one pack, and if you thaw them all at once, the amount will be quite large and you will have food for several days. Also, if you don’t cook it after making sure it’s properly thawed, you will probably see frozen blood in the frying pan, so be careful.

Translated from Japanese: I ordered this with the lamb shoulder. The texture was good. Some in my family liked it better than the lamb shoulder.

Very meaty and tasty

45 minutes in the pressure cooker with some whisky and spices and they are perfect!

I’m suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity

Translated from Japanese: I’m suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity. It’s difficult to find meat I can eat.
In one pack there are 4 – 6 hearts and they make up about 1kg. I received 6 of them. They are all in the same bag, so they stick together in a frozen state. It was impossible to peel them off as they were. Once thawed and cooked, the unused portion was frozen and stored. The re-frozen part was dry. It’s better to use it up at once if possible. Though that’s impossible…
Since there is a lot of oil, it takes time to process. Please be prepared. The taste is delicious. The scent of lamb is weak. My mother, who doesn’t like meat, drained the blood, so that the feeling of the meat being a heart greatly diminished. The meat is soft. I fried it in Genghis Khan style.
