Do you think of a cut of beef that you want to cook and eat? Or, does it make you squeamish?
Whenever we sell a quarter, half or whole beef, we ask customers if they want any of the offal or “one-per-cow parts” like cow tongue, heart, liver or kidney. Many say “yes” and then they quickly ask, “but how do you cook it?” We like to answer this question with firsthand experience. That’s where this recipe comes in.
There are some very popular dishes featuring cow tongue like pickled beef tongue and Beef Tacos de Lengua. With Lengua tacos, the meat is either cooked down into tender shreds or coarsely chopped before being thrown into a tortilla. When it’s cooked, you get a piece of meat that has a rich beefy flavor, buttery texture.
