For the carnivores extant what is your favorite tongue preparation and if you have any recipes - post it over in the appropriate CHOW section?
My preferences are
pickled tongue (Jewish deli style) with seeded rye & mustard
grilled FRESH beef tongue at a Japanese grill on E. 52nd? St in NYC
PS. My beagles love it also......
I get pork tongue at a large Asian grocery, about half the price of beef. I may have seen lamb tongues at an Indian grocery, but didn't buy them. While I initial bought pork because of the price difference, I prefer it now. The last time I bought a beef tongue it seemed much fattier.
With either, I cook it till tender in lightly seasoned liquid, and then use the meat in various ways later. Beef, in particular, goes well with a piquant sauce. That last I tried included pomegranate.
I've only tried beef tongue so far & I cooked in slow cooker with garlic & onions then peeled & shredded for beef tongue tacos. Delicious! I have not found any other animal tongues where I live (rural area)
