    I love tongue tacos. They are my absolute favorite. I do not care to boil my tongue. I use a crock pot! I rinse the tongue and place it in my crock pot with a 1/4 water, 1 tbs cumin, tomato chicken bullion by Knorr (the one with the red lid) and cook on high for four hours. Then you can pull the outer skin layer off super easy like a glove. Put your tongue back in the crock pot for another two hours on med-low heat. Your tongue should pull apart and shred super easy. I add one packet of Sazon Goya (The one in the orange box) in the international isle in your market. mix the meat well with the juices in the pot. I serve with corn tortillas and Spanish rice on the side. I make a pica to go over the tongue. Most people use cilantro and onion to serve with a splash of lime. It’s amazing.

    We are trying to expand our diet by trying organ meat. We shop at our local farmers market and this years adventure was to try tongue. As this is a “less” requested cut, we bought a beef tongue for $5 (but probably could have got it for free, lol). In looking online for a recipe, this was the first I saw and it was reviewed and rated a 5 by 54 people. I followed the recipe letting the tongue simmer until tender. We unfortunately did not eat it right away so it was left in the pot and put in the fridge. We just returned home hungry, so I decided to cut and brown the tongue and make up the tacos. They are as great as the reviews indicated. We appreciated the up front honesty as there is a “mental” factor to address in handling and preparing the tongue but getting past the cooking, the eating is great! We are so glad to have tried tongue and this recipe was so fresh and tasty. We will do it again!

    Amazing! I haven’t touched lengua since I was forced to eat it as a child. I braised mine in a crockpot for 12 hours, shut it off and let it rest. So incredibly flavorful and melt in your mouth delicious. My daughter came home from work and without asking began chewing down on it before asking “is this really beef? It is so tender” LOL…upon hearing it is tongue, she hesitated and then said “wow, this is amazing”
