        Can you tell me how to do the tongue? My husband loves tongue tacos!

        1. re: lilmomma

          I use this recipe but place it in my slowcooker. I cook it about 3 hours on high, skin. place back in the broth and let it go another 3 hours low. Then I shred it up and leave it in the juices until I serve it.

          As you can see it's a very meaty flavor. I don't add tomato paste and will wet the meat with a little of the broth but let the toppings add the heat and lime flavor.

          Now I'm craving it! Will have to hunt down a good tongue. :)

            Sounds delicious... I can't believe how expensive tongue and ox tails have become. Just as expensive as a decent steak!

            1) Beans
            2) Chili Verde - Pork
            3) Pot Roast includes short ribs and corned beef brisket.
            4) Little Smokies and bbq sauce
            5) Queso-dip

              I know! Even the Asian markets have wised up.... I usually brows the meat section of my local store until I see one on quick sale and toss them in my freezer for a later date. But I haven't even seen them on quick sale for a long time. :/

      2. beef barley stew
        beans, plain (type varies)
        chicken stock
        corned beef
        butternut squash soup

        1. Black bean soup
          Turkey thighs with a little tomatillo on top- like pulled pork when it is done
          Pork butt
          whole butternut squash to soften, then peel and seed and back in for soup
          beef stew

          1. It's pretty pork-tactular:

            1. Texas pulled pork
            2 Pumpkin steel cut oats (this recipe slightly modified)
            3. Char Siu pork roast
            4. Pinto beans
            5. Various Bayless recipes from Mexican Everyday. Probably this one because it's a dump and go and it's not pork:
