Stir-Fried Goat Heart over Kale (serves 1-2)

stir-fried goat heart over kale with
drizzle of hot chili oil
I was at Portsmouth Farmer's Market and came across beautiful and fresh kale from The Hollister Family Farm. I decided to make this dish inspired by a beef dish called "Bo Luc Lac", direct translation in Vietnamese is shaking beef.  Typically this dish entails stir-fried or shaken beef cubes on a bed of fresh watercress and tomato slices.  I made a slightly similar dish using kangaroo called Kangaroo Luc Lac.  However, today I decided to use goat hearts purchased from Cracked an Egg Farm. The goat hearts were quick to cook and came out very tender and tasty.

If you are interested in purchasing or learning more about The Hollister Family Farm, please check them out at 163 Lee Hook Road, Lee (603-659-7189).  They sell an abundance of produce such as tomatoes, cantaloupe, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, greens, potatoes, garlic, honey and more!

Stir-Fried Kale

2-3 Tbsps olive oil
1 bunch (about 10-oz) kale, washed and sliced into 2 inch lengths, keep the stalks separate from the leaves
Salt to taste


1) Add about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
2) Once the pan is hot add the kale stalks.  Stir occasionally for about 3 minutes.
3) Add the leaves and stir occasionally for about 2 minutes.  Add more oil to the pan as needed.
4) Add salt, stir and remove from heat.

Stir-Fried Goat Heart with Onion

2 goat hearts (about 5-oz), thinly sliced
A large pinch of salt and pepper or according to your taste

1) Add  about 1 tablespoon of oil into a pan over medium high heat.
2) Add onion.  Stir for about 2 minutes or until the onion is completely wilted.

4) Turn off heat, add salt and pepper to taste and stir.
5) Pour the contents onto the Stir-Fried Kale (see above) and serve.
