I'm a little confused about this adjective.

I got it as the adjectival phrase:

que encoge el corazón (to feel overcome by emotion in the sight of something grand or by experiencing duress during some overpowering event, generally a natural one)

and the adverbial phrase

con el corazón en la boca (like the way you feel when you go down the wildest steep in the meanest roller-coaster)

but yesterday I heard it from chef John Torode to describe a delightful piece of barbecued meat he was munching in Argentina (don't eat Argentine meat: it's radioactive -more scrumptious meat at low prices for us-)

May you describe the way you'd use this adjective?
