Tongue-It's whats for dinner, or lunch or breakfast

1 Grass Fed Tongue.
Pressure cooker
Apple Cinder Vinegar
Soy Sauce
Bragg's Amino
Water
Garlic

80 minutes to cook, 20 to cool, 10 to slice.

It tastes much better then it looks, most will have to trust me on this.

Must thank Dr. G for suggesting organ meats as a great source of nutrition

Re: Tongue-It's whats for dinner, or lunch or breakfast

Jay, my first reaction was OMG! But tongue has always frightened me since I saw once defrosting on the counter when I was a little girl!

MY dinner tonight was:
1/2 c chopped white onion
2 c shredded gr cabbage
2 c chop cauliflower
1/2 c chopped parsley
5 oz ground bison
1 T raw tehina diluted in water
cook everything together, add salt, eat!

Yummy!

Gee, that looks scary.

Didn't something like that come out of the abdomen of Sigourney Weaver in ALIENS?

Re: Tongue-It's whats for dinner, or lunch or breakfast

I've had lengua tacos a few times--a touch rubbery, but actually really tender and tasty. But when I suggested trying to make it at home, my wife said "no... at some point you will be carrying this giant raw tongue and chase me around the house pretending to try and lick me with it like a cow."

And then I thought about it and realized she was right; that would be funny enough I couldn't resist trying. And I would be hit for it. So no tongue tacos for me.

Now that's a funny picture.

Reminds me of a time when I was first dating my ex-husband. He came home from work and I told him, "I have good and bad news. The good news is I have something for dinner. The bad news is it's alive, in the refrigerator, and I'm afraid of it."

"IT" being two lobsters. I had the seafood guy double bag them, staple the bags, and carried them home in the back seat of the car, listening for them escaping and glancing frequently in the rear view mirror in case they were crawling up over the seats to get me.

Ex-husband-to-be saw I was genuinely afraid of the beasts and started chasing me all over the apartment with them. I screamed so much, I can't imagine why nobody called the police.

When he finally got around to the business of cooking them, I could hear him in the kitchen, talking to the lobsters. "Ralph, meet Ed. Ed...Ralph. How would you guys like a nice warm bath?"

Maybe I will try the tongue, Jason.

Susie

Re: Tongue-It's whats for dinner, or lunch or breakfast

Heh... actually, lobsters CAN be pretty scary the first time you see 'em. Does make me wonder who looked at that and said "dude... that looks awesome for dinner."

I did know some folks who cooked them by putting them in an empty dishwasher. For some reason, I still find that alarming.

Would that be the "Dry" cycle or Full cycle"?

Re: Tongue-It's whats for dinner, or lunch or breakfast

I gotta agree with Susie...it looks kinda scary.

Jay - you say it tastes much better than it looks. What does it compare to?
