  1. Trim any fat off the heart. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut off any large pieces of the connective tissue around the top of the meat.
  2. Roll into a roast form and tie with string.
  3. Brown in the oil on all sides.
  4. Put in a dutch oven and add the onion, cut into about 8 pieces, and all the other ingredients, except the bread crumbs.
  5. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 4 hours, turning every hour.
  6. After 2 hours, add the bread crumbs.
  7. When done, remove heart and use an immersion blender or regular blender to smooth the gravy. If desired, you can thicken the gravy some more with a water and flour mixture, bringing it to the boil.
  8. Slice the heart lengthwise into 1/4 slices.
