This Beef Heart Pate recipe came about after Christine and I made Stuffed Beef Heart on our YouTube show. Christine wasn’t keen to eat heart but took one for the team. However, she is a big fan of liver pate and I set out to create a recipe that would make her happy. Because this was an extension of our Valentine’s Day episode we thought Beef Heart Pate was the perfect way to celebrate Galentine’s Day. Thank you Leslie Knopp for turning a Hallmark holiday into a way to celebrate our girlfriends.
Before you make Beef Heart Pate you will need to cook a beef heart. You can refer to our video in which we stuffed a heart with a cracker stuffing then braised in beef broth on the stove top for three hours. Or use any recipe for beef heart you can find.

If you have leftover beef heart and aren’t sure what to do with it, may I make a suggestion:
[…] A couple of weeks ago Christine and I made beef heart for the YouTube show. It was a big heart so we had a lot left over. Because Christine loves pate, and because the heart had a liver quality, I decided to make pate out of the heart. It was delicious. I’ll admit, buying and cooking a heart is a commitment but if you are having a really fancy-shmancy party this would be the thing to do.
