sheep tongue recipe

I've never tried this recipe---but it has good old basic ingreds, so it could work. (Frankly, I'm not sure anyone could "mask" them enough!)

read

Ingredients: Sheep's tongues, bacon, beef, onions, herbs, spice,
eggs, butter, flour.

Cook three or four sheep's tongues in good stock, and add some
slices of bacon, bits of beef, two onions, a bunch of herbs, and a
pinch of spice. Let them get cold, flour them and mask them with
egg beaten up and fry quickly in butter. Serve with Italian sauce

As a kid I spent several awiles in a hospital, in NYC. Nothing too serious, a bunch of surgeries, and I am none worse for the experience. Thanks to the folks who took care of me.

But every other meal was tongue. Not spiced or interesting, just boiled beef tongue cut into thin slices and served almost cold.

As I grew older I would hear that Kosher delis could make tongue sing. Have been in many Kosher delis but cannot order the tongue.

Kosher delis have a way of making things taste great, but I cannot do it.

We all have our food foibles, and I suppose this is one of mine.

For "expatgirl" My life mirrors yours---my husb came home with a deer the first year we were married, and I welcomed it because we were in school and so poor. But, Oh! After I cooked that ENTIRE deer, I swore I'd never eat venison again----and I still have not!

Amen....hallelujia to that!!!!! Glad to know that I'm not the only cavewoman who suffered eating the same meat for a year and boy did I become very proficient with the meat tenderizer hammer............we were on such a tight budget that I had to write down when I even bought a piece of 1cent bubblegum.........my hubby once chewed "me" out in the middle of the grocery because expensive tomatoes had been placed in the grocery cart......then "I" turned around and it was a complete stranger and the tomatoes were in HER cart..........he was totally embarassed....... and she didn't slug him

The only time I have had tongue was beef tongue diced up in a burrito, I did not care for it but DW loves it. I stick to the steak...

For some reason I keep seeing this image of me cooking a whole tongue and suddenly it starts talking back to me, mostly complaining that I am not cooking it right...

Then there's the talking cow thing from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy...

i just saw an episode of bizarre foods with andrew zimmern, and he had the most delicious looking beef tongue sammich at a deli here in nyc. it was thinly sliced and really marbled; it looked fantastic in a tasty/fatty way.
i'll have to see if i can find out where he got it and try it for myself.
