Beef tongue - let's discuss
 
Yup - you guessed it... a whole beef tongue wound up finding its way home into my fridge and ended up researching prior threads regarding cooking/prep/smoking techniques... and found these little morsels.

Decided to compile this list to help anyone who's afraid of a little tongue. :shock::shock::shock:

Any additional legitimate suggestions would be greatly appreciated (watch it farkers :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:).

I have never cooked one myself, but I remember as a kid my Papaw cooked them every time we killed a cow. I know he smoked them and that's all I know. They were good and I look forward to seeing your post. I would like to get hands on one and try it.

Skinned and Charcoal grilled with Thai dipping sauce and I am so into it!

Best meat for tacos there is. Wife boils them in pot, removes outer layer then shreds meat. Throw in tortillas with diced onion, hot, hot chili sauce and a squeeze of lemon juice. Looks like I need to do another tutorial.

Titch, is kinda like cooking pulled pork. You have to cook it until probe tender.

Just getting into smoking here, so I would not know about "SMOKED BEEF TONGUE" (yet). BUT, I can tell you that Smothered Beef Tongue over the kitchen stove is about the best to be had... bar none...

That's a dish that Cajuns learn at an early age......

SO I guess I will need to try SMOKED BEEF TONGUE one day soon......

BobBrisket 01-16-2013 08:18 PM

I love tongue! :-D Great flavor. Two things that turn people off......the way it looks and even once you have cooked the hell out of it........the texture. My mom learned to make it from my Grandma. Their version was boiled, then sliced. After slicing, they get tossed in a hot pan with some oil, lard, or bacon grease and allowed to brown a bit. The sauce is a tomato, celery, onion, garlic, and green peas sauce.......OMG!!! Farking incredible!

A friend of mine talked me into getting a Lengua burrito (beef tongue) and it was pretty darn good. Tasted like a really well cooked pot roast.

Yes and yes. Around here anytime I'm coming home from an outing at 3am :rockon: on a weekend with munchies and I spot a taco truck or a taqueria with tongue or cheek meat on the menu, baby I'm in!!! I'm craving it right now as a matter of fact :hungry: BRB lol

PigBeter 01-17-2013 12:51 AM

I love tongue, but have never had it smoked. That's something I would love to try!

J'ville Grill 01-17-2013 01:04 AM

Sliced thin and piled high on most any type of bread or roll!
