I've always prepared mine as described in Under Pressure.  I don't have the book in front of me but if no one else responds I'll pull out my book when I get to the kitchen.

We're a little late to the conversation, but recommend 5 hours at 80 °C. Best of luck!

I'm curious about the differences between the recommendations made so far. The temperature difference is small, but the time difference is huge. Is this an example of a case where time is not critical past a certain point?

OK - this is it: I made it exactly like i would do a beef filet: Thickness: 2 cm (Cut the heart in two - trimmed of all the fat etc)

Starting Temp. out of Fridge: 6 C 

Waterbath Temp: / Final Temp of meat: 58 C

Total Time in Sous-vide Bath: 1 Hour 7 Minutes (Left it in for 1 hour and seared it in the pan, seasoned it) Was perfect. Nice medium rare!!

The second time i just grilled the heart (raw heart on the grill with olive oil) for about 3-4 Minutes on each side - depending on thickness. Perfect again.

Was for a newspaper article:
