Hi. I didn't see any similar questions, so I'm throwing this one out to any other offal lovers. Since going paleo, what offal and other "odd" animal bits have you tried? C'mon, don't be shy :P Here's my list, from head to tail: brain: pork,... (more)

Chicken feet! They are super tasty and rich in collagen. I slow braise them chinese style or add them to soups-they really make your broth gel. Beef tounge is also delicious when stewed for a long time, or cooked into a meatloaf. Another thing... (more)

Lately I've been buying beef tongue, boiling it up and eating it slowly with mustard, yum. Is it a good organ meat? A super organ meat? An average organ meat? thanks

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

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/heart It's an organ. I would categorize it as Offal.
