    Donna Matthews's Note:

    The chile tomato sauce makes this dish. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law when I first got married. Now I fix it for whole family gatherings along with a chicken dish because my sons love the tongue and my daughters-in-law are not fond of it.

    Units: US | Metric

    For tongue

    • 1 (3 -4 lb) beef tongues (or several small ones)
    • 1/4 cup vinegar
    • water, to cover

    For sauce


    1. 1
      Place tongue in large pot.
    2. 2
      Add vinegar and enough water to cover the tongue.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer.
    4. 4
      Simmer for several hours until tongue is nice and tender when a two pronged fork is inserted into the thickest part.
    5. 5
      Cool tongue enough to peel skinn off. (Beware, the water that has collected under the skin can be hot enough to scald you.).
    6. 6
      Before taking tongue out of water, put sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, adding garlic salt to taste.
    7. 7
      Bring to a simmer and leave simmering while preparing tongue, so flavors of sauce blend.
    8. 8
      After skinning tongue, slice and serve with sauce.
