Ox tongue

I make a mean stewed ox tongue dish. I combined Spanish and French recipes and came up with a consistent winner. There's never any leftover which is too bad 'coz some guests invariably want to take some home. (Actually DH makes me freeze part of the batch for his personal ration). I searched this topic and couldn't find any entries for ox tongue in DiscussCooking. Does anybody here eat ox tongue at all?

I am sure there are lots of folk who will eat it, and as varied as my diet is I should too. BUT...I make it a point not to eat anything that could taste me back. The mere thought gives me the willies.

Alix, a Danish friend who was one of my dinner guests when I served my ox tongue actually cracked a joke, likening it to 'french kissing a cow'. He ate it anyway

tounge is awesome when cooked nicely. The only innarrd I will not ever eat is brains for safety reasons. (obviously) I am fond of liver and kidneys, I eat sweetbreads, I have had tripe beautifully prepared, I have enjoyed real soul food chitterlings, etc. At some delis you can still get sliced beef toungue sandwiches! anyway...post your recipe please!

I thought beef tongue would be horriible, but prepared correctly, it's like the most tender steak you can immagine, think veal or somewhere along those lines. You actually peel the tongue so it doesn't have the rubbery "tongue" texture.

I haven't tried it but... would be more than willing.

Is there a big difference between beef and ox ?

I have had beef tongue when I was young. I was not told what it was before hand. I hated it. Only once they knew I did not like it purely for flavor reasons did they tell me what it was.

As long as the 'skin' is removed, in my mind, tongue is just any other muscle. It's very lean too, as long as you trim off the extraneous fat, which is very easy to do.

Not having a pressure cooker, I simmer my ox tongue for a good 3 hours to get it really good and tender with that 'melt in your mouth' quality.

Sure Robo, I'll need to type up the recipe first. Pls give me sometime.

GB, if it was the flavor that threw you and you have nothing against tongue, you might want to give it another try. Maybe it wasn't prepared well when you had it young.
