Deli tongue

I cured and pickled for a week and soaked and boiled and peeled. It was uh-mazing. I feel like I channeled my great great grandma in the shtetle making this thing.

Looks deelish. Whole raw tongue is not easy to come by in our area but I'd like to see your recipe.

Lots of people consider tongue as disgusting. Not me! Makes very good sandwiches...

Yum...it's been forever, we used to have it monthly when I was a kid. Shrek would never let me buy it or heart, either.

It's like slices of beefy pot roast, those who doubt the tongue are really missing out. My favorite, chop fine, sear in a little oil, add chopped onion, and cilantro, squeeze of lime, and into a couple of tortillas. Tacos de lingue, QUE RICO!

My favorite too Tatt. I do think it should be added that it needs to be boiled till tender first!

lol, indeed, though I thought it should go without saying.

I remember too, having thought about tongue since this thread popped up, my fave sammich version: Butter grilled sourdough(I am not a huge rye/pumper fan), shaved tongue, thin sliced red onion, a generous amount of fresh cracked black pepper, and horseradish mayo(or aioli if ya wanna get all fancy, so add garlic to the mayo, big whoop), and for a REAL TREAT, I add an over easy egg. Was one of my all time faves in my short time living in NYC. Also, GREAT cure for a hangover!
