    Buster's friend's Note:

    Beef tongue was a once a year dish in our home growing up. A beef a year meant one dinner of tongue. Now before you say, "Ewww!", realize that tongue is a tender delicious even textured full flavored cut that lends itself well to braising. Many different regions have their own ways of preparing tongue because it is so tasty. Stashing this Uruguayan treat for a cold platter night. Will serve with fresh vegetables - tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, diced chiles, pickled green beans or okra from the garden. BTW leftover tongue makes The Best sandwiches on chewy rolls with bumpy mustard, lettuce shreds & onion slices! Received in an email from gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world. Tongue is available at Walmart now if your butcher doesn't carry them... right over by the beef cheeks.

    1. 1
      Combine the tongue, carrots, celery, onion, bay leaves, and peppercorns in a large pot and add enough water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer covered for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
    2. 2
      Remove the tongue and discard the liquid and vegetables. Peel off and discard the skin. Slice the tongue into thin slices and arrange on a serving platter.
    3. 3
      Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, and mustard. Stir in the chopped egg, salt, and pepper and spoon the sauce over the tongue.
    4. 4
      Let the tongue marinate covered in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. Serve cold or at room temperature.
