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.

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.
