Baked Stuffed Sheeps or Lambs Hearts

ingredients

serves 4
2 sheep's or 4 lamb's hearts
basic herb stuffing
2 oz (50 g) soft lamb or mutton fat
butter for greasing
250 ml any strong stock
1 tbsp plain flour (All purpose)
salt and pepper

method

1. Prepare the hearts. Dry thoroughly and fill with the stuffing.

2. Skewer or sew together the thin flaps at the top to hold in the stuffing.

3. Heat the fat in a small baking tin and put in the hearts.

4. Baste well, and bake them in a moderate oven, 180°C, Gas 4, for 1 hour for sheep's hearts, 45 minutes for lamb's hearts.

5. Baste them several times during cooking.

6. When cooked, transfer them to a warmed serving dish, remove the skewers, if necessary, and keep hot under buttered greaseproof paper.

7. Drain most of the fat from the tin but keep any meat juices.

8. Blend a little stock into the flour to make a paste.

9. Mix the paste into the pan juices, then gradually stir in the remaining stock.

10. Heat to simmering point, stirring all the time, and simmer until thickened. Season well.

11. Pour a little of this gravy round the hearts and serve the rest in a warmed sauce boat.

It was just what I was loking for,I am a senior citizen, and I cook every day , and I fed up with all the recipies today, I thought I would go back to what we enjoyed when we were young, and would you believe there are no recipies for all the old favorites. Thank you for the bbc recipe page.

Thanks a lot for a simple yet tasty recipe. I have not had hearts for a long time, and having found some in my local supermarket I struggled to find a recipe in any of our numerous books. I just followed the instructions on here & they cooked up beautifully
What a change!

My husband does the shopping, and by mistake he brought home lambs hearts instead of lambs kidneys.....I had no recipe for them, so MANY THANKS for a great recipe!...and yes, its also a reasonably cheap dish here in South Africa too!

I like lambs hearts. I stuff them with basic stuffing. Then instead of fat I use butter and a littel horse radish mix together for the baste and some groung black pepper on top. Serve with roast pots roast honeyed parsnip and carrots/fine green beans.
Thanks for this recipe

I bought some lambs hearts and thought it would be easy to find a recipe. I've looked in all my cookery books for a recipe but couldn't find one. Haven't cooked them since I was in school (about 45 years ago!!!). This recipe is even easier than the one from school. Thank you so much. I can now make a really tasty dish for the family.
Yummy
