Beef tongue

I just put my tongue in the brine. It's supposed to soak in the brine for at least a week before I braise it. I might go 2 weeks. Good things come to those who wait.

Interesting Liz. I've always just boiled mine fresh until tender. I'm intrigued by your method.

I tried making one by just boiling it and the results were not close to the Jewish Deli's when I lived in NJ. this time before I bought the tongue I looked around to find out how Jews do it. I found this recipe. I'll let you know in a couple of weeks how it comes out. https://jewishfood.wordpress.com/200...d-beef-tongue/

Wow! You're a trooper. I couldn't leave my tongue in a glass of milk for five minutes, let alone a week, and I love milk. (Ok, it wasn't all that funny. But you know me and my cornball humor.)

Oh, you mean the cow tongue. Yeh, he won't mind. He's up there with his dad and grandpa, not to mention he mom and grandma, eating from a perfect field on a perfect day.

Good luck with your tongue trial. If my DD's ever read this, they'd be rolling their eyes at me.

I wondered if I'd get a comment like that when I wrote "I put my tongue in the brine and will leave it to soak for at least a week" It does sound humorous.

My personal tongue is just fine where it is...permanently stuck in my cheek.

Chief,
Share that peace pipe.

On topic, I am in awe of the OP.

Gosh, in awe of me for this? Anyone can do this. Easy peasy. Most of the time I'll spend on it will be waiting for the brine to work in the fridge and waiting for a 250 degree oven to do it's magic.

Liz, do you have follow along directions for us? SousChef (DH) is Jewish and raised in New York but he has no first hand experience or memory of it being prepared.

Edit: Whoops, I just saw your link. Thanks Liz

Pickled tongue is definitely an acquired taste. I for one hate it, even though I grew up Jewish, eating Jewish food. To pickle it you basically can use corn beef recipe. It is exactly the same idea. Good luck.
