Any benefit of heart over a steak?

I just ate my first lambs heart, it was cooked in the crockpot for about 9/10 hours, after my workout i just felt to go for it & it was damn delicious! Just like a fatty bit of meat really, going to definitely buy them often.

Is there any nutritional benefits to eating heart over say a steak or a lamb chop or isit all just muscle meat with the same qualities?

Its much cheaper which is a plus, but one animal has one heart, i wonder should i be eating 3 hearts per week rather than one heart & a few steaks which would make more sense

Btw for you UK paleo heads i can't believe how much fresh offal tesco have on offer, i usually stick to waitrose which is calves liver or nothing, but tesco got livers, kidneys, hearts of various animals!

So I cooked the hearts in clarified butter and the fat from the steak, served on top of a skirt with asparagus -- it was amazing. Thanks for the idea!

FWIW, cardiac muscle is it's own class of muscle. There's smooth muscle (organs), cardiac muscle (heart - specialized smooth muscle), and skeletal muscle (what people think of when they hear "muscle").

Heart has more CoQ10 than steak per unit mass.

Taurine springs to mind -- heart and organs do have a different nutritional profile in general. I cycle through as many parts of the animal as I can. And I am jealous of your shopping choices!
