Anybody know how to cook Cows tongue?
I never had it and was interested. I saw some at a market and thought I would give it a try. I will probably just google it, but I was wondering if anybody here had any experience with it. I was amazed at how big they are. They were around 1.5 kilos.

Sauté it and then boil it. Then, slow cook it for about 12 hours in water with diced onions, garlic, and red wine. Then, throw it away and eat something else.

















Actually, I have no idea, but that seemed as logical as anything.

Season (salt, pepper, paprika, chile powder, garlic salt), brown on cast iron. Deglaze cast iron, saute onions and green peppers (or a mirepoux). Deglaze again, pour into crock pot with some red wine and/or beef broth on low. Come back in 12 hours, shred and stick on a corn tortilla with some fresh salsa, corn, and cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Because it makes the best tasting beef taco you'll ever eat.

Well damn , I'll guess I'll have to try these tacos. Wasn't even thinking that direction, but it sounds good. Thanks guys.

ETA: do I need to take the skin off the outside at anypoint? Or does cooking it for that long negate this?

Good stuff right there my friend! Will make one of the best gravys you've ever tasted.

Season it like you would a lil roast.

Get your black pot, sautee both sides until good and brown. I usually brown my meat for 30 mins to an hour. (Gives me something to do while drinking)

Take out the tongue and place it in your pots lid and sautee all your onions, bellpeppers. Celery etc..... brown these until they're very soft and caramelized.

Put tongue back in the pot, add water about halfway up your meat, turn fire for medium and put it on drink. Cook for a good 2.5-3 hrs.

Slice in half inch slices and enjoy.

I braised one like that years and years ago for our Monday Night Football group when we were seniors at PMH.Didn't tell them what it was until after the meal. It was fine. I eat the lengua tacos or a burrito on just about every trip to a local hole in the wall messican joint.

Tongue tacos are the way to go with this. I did one a while back that called for smoking one. I sliced for sandwiches and it was ok. The meat was surprisingly fatty.

There is a crock pot tongue taco recipe out there on the Internet. That's gonna be the one I try next.

Tongue is a staple of Jewish diets too Otis. It requires a ton of cooking time, as there is little time during the day that group of muscles is dormant which means it is tough as hell even more than brisket.


ETA google jewish tongue recipes it will definitely bring up a ton of stuff.

That's my my Mexican mother did it. She didn't use red wine and added bay leaves, thyme, coriander or whatever else. All my friends thought they were eating the juciest and most tender pot roast. I didn't have the heart to tell them. Jewish delis often serve this. American Sector at the WWII museum serves an open faced tongue sandwich that is good.

Cut the outer part off (taste buds), she would score it and peel it off alike a wet suit. The remaining meat looks like a beef tenderloin.

Uncle Jack D knows what he is talking about when it comes to cooking beef tongue. Grew up on this rice & gravy as a kid. Had the tongue tacos before & they are good but you can't beat a good tongue in a gravy!!!

+1000, the skin/exterior is kind of like sandpaper in texture.


ETA,it is easier to skin it after it is cooked.
