Heart - is it muscle meat or organ meat?

by (2028) Updated September 21, 2012 at 6:07 PM Created September 21, 2012 at 5:45 PM

The heart is an organ but, as a pump, it is also a very strong muscle, so how would you categorize the meat?

It is cardiac muscle, which has a different grain structure than muscle meat (intercalcated discs).

Liver by comparison is made mostly of hepatocytes, kidneys mostly composed of nephrons, etc.

In my opinion, heart tastes more like muscle meat than an orgran.

It's an organ. I would categorize it as Offal.
