Grilled Hearts of Venison with Arugula, Gribiche & Shallot Rings

Don’t be shy. Ask your butcher for venison hearts. Out of venison? Substitute lamb, calf or ox heart if you like. Most meat markets can easily accommodate these special orders. Serves four.

Grilled Bolivian Ox Heart Anticucho

Love a big, juicy steak? Try this alternative. Ox heart is one of the most underrated cuts of meat. Period. It’s a huge muscle, and makes for an extremely tender stead.

Andrew Zimmern's recipe for shellfish coctel

Shellfish Fire Water Coctel

A Refreshing (& Surprising!) Summer Dish We’re big fans of gazpacho at my house, but this is a equally delicious substitute. Pair it with an ice cold Mexican beer like Tecate. The key is using nice, juicy tomatoes!

Low Country Soused Shrimp with Sweet Corn

Light, Refreshing & Perfect for Summer By Andrew Zimmern I love this dish. Served as a main with fried green tomatoes and crusty baguette or a hearty appetizer, it’s one of my go-to summer staples.

Hot Wok Beef with Snow Peas

Simple Stir Fry I always recommend this recipe to cooks new to Chinese cuisine. It’s not authentic, but I teach it all of the time because it schools American cooks on what is going on in your pan. Instructions Combine beef tenderloin, corn starch, rice wine, hot chile paste and soy sauce, and marinate overnight…  Read More
