This is pretty much how I make it although I add an onion, carrot, celery, whole peppercorns. I have never had the skin fall off a tongue. I cut a slit through the peel down its length, tease up a corner, then grab with a paper towel and pull it off. This is a delicious pure beef meal, practically no waste.
This was my first time cooking and eating beef tongue. DH and I had bought a side of beef a couple months back. Last night as I removed the tongue from my freezer, I said "Ewww!". Then this morning when I washed it, I said "Ewwww, Ewwww, Ewwww!!!". After cooking for nine hours, I easily removed the skin and quietly said, "Ewww." When DH and I ate it, we said, "MMMMMMMmmmmmm". I was surprised and didn't know what to expect. It was like the best flavored roast beef ever. Once it is on your plate, there is no reason to be squeamish, DH didn't even flinch once. :) Thanks Patioprincess!!!!
I love beef tongue and this is the only recipe I will use because it's simple and tasty. I usually cook mine on the stove for about 5 hours and have always had to remove the skin myself, but it peels off quickly and easily. Thanks, patioprincess.
Almost like I remember as a child. Yeah there is the EEEEWWWWW factor but the yum outweighs
this is as good as it is simple even though I have always had to peel the skin off. you can skewer a thin slice on bamboo and grill for a minute on each side over charcole for a snack while BBQing.
Tried it and followed the recipe ....however, after 12 hours on HIGH the skin still wasn't even close to coming off, so I cut it off. The taste was great! The consistency is really quite unique. Thanks for the recipe!
Gee...would love to rate this cause I'm sure it's a five. Just like my mom made. My problem is I try not to eat meat anymore...but this may be my undoing!
