Favorite recipes for beef tongue?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I love beef tongue. Some years ago when it was priced like neck bones, I'd buy it a lot. Now it's pretty expensive.

Anyway, to the topic--one of my favorite ways of preparing it is to cook it like corned beef, with corned beef spices. I love it hot, and I love it cold in sandwiches.

Do you have a favorite way of preparing it? I've seen other threads that had mention of it, but none that had it as the subject.

Tacos, smoked, red cooked (chinese) are some of my favorite tongue preparations.

My mom used to serve it boiled, sliced and served with horseradish. Then the next day it was sandwiches on rye bread with spicy mustard. yum.
What a relief! To find out after all these years that I'm not crazy. I'm just culinarily divergent...

I also enjoy beef tongue prepared in the same way as corned beef, and especially in sandwiches.

But every time I hear beef tongue mentioned, it reminds me of a scene in All in the Family, where Edith tells Archie they're having tongue for dinner. He replies "Edith, I can't eat anything that's been in an animal's mouth. Fix me some eggs, willya, huh?"

LOL Grace, I get the same from other people.

If people who like hot dogs knew where the meat came from, I bet a lot of them would appreciate beef tongue more.

"mystery meat" ... this is why I prefer Kosher hot dogs, even though I wonder what happens when the Rabbi blinks :look: . I'm sure they're still cleaner than the other kinds.

Ah... but we're getting off topic now.

In the recent thread on sandwiches, BDL mentioned tongue, and I asked if it was smoked or pickled. I haven't had pickled tongue for years, it is sort of like corned beef with some vinegar involved along the way. Time to dig out some recipes and give it a try.

I've never had pickled or smoked tongue.

Would it be off topic for me to suggest my favorite tongue ever was attached to a woman and there was something to do with kissing? I guess it would. So ignore this.

I can imagine vinegar could really do something for beef tongue.

For sure, tongue can be great sometimes and really tough sometimes :smiles:

I've heard about that rabbi :^)
