Recipe by mollypaul

Before you say "ick" to tongue, ask yourself if you like brisket or corned beef. If your answer is yes then you'll love tongue, which has a very pleasant beefy flavor. Allow 1/4 to 1/2 pound of meat per serving. From the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
