    Babychops's Note:

    Once my friend Hilda from Guatemala convinced me it wouldn't kill me I tried beef tongue...then I begged her for the recipe! Over the years I've tweeked it a bit and it's only gotten better, you've GOT to try this! Just don't tell your kids what it is & they'll love it too, even my boyfriend's 9 year old thinks it's awesome! Hilda used to boil it but I decided to try it with the crock pot & man, it's just awesome, so tender & absolutely delicious!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12-15

    Yield:

    tacos

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place 1st 10 ingredients in crock pot & cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. You can slice the tongue lengthwise to make it fit, that's usually what I do.
    2. 2
      You can substitute beef stock for the water as suggested by my gracious reviewer Klyn or experiment, I often use Caldo de Res by Knorr. This is just so good I make it whenever I see fresh beef tongue in the market.
    3. 3
      Before you remove tongue from crock pot prep the rest of the ingredients for toppings, etc. (the lime is for a squeeze over your tacos). Garnish with these as you like. Sometimes I just put cilantro, scallions, a touch of avocado, salt, pepper & lime but experiment! Adjust amount as needed. I usually just make enough for two people & then make fresh each day for leftovers.
    4. 4
      Once tongue is done remove & peel off outer layer, it comes off pretty easily once it's fully cooked. Chop or shred meat and make your tacos! This is so delicious you probably won't have leftovers but if you do it's even better the next day! Enjoy!
    5. 5
      I've added some photos, I was being lazy tonight & just slapped some of the chopped tongue onto white bread with some mayo & a little salt. Absolutely delicious! Do try this, the meat is so incredibly tender & delicious I just can't describe it in words -- .

      Wow, I absolutely love it. So good and so easy. I cooked the tounge as directed but I made fresh salsa out of the rest of ingredients and served. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Into my favorite file.

      Thank you so much for posting this, Babychops! DH ate the whole thing (and mainly in one sitting)! I got a little bite, and it was very good, and tender. The only change I made was to use beef stock instead of water, and didn't use so much as to cover. When it was done, I chopped the meat and seasoned with salt. Served it in corn tortillas with onions, cilantro, salsa and lime wedges.
