    I grew up on tongue, but my mom boiled it.  Haven't eaten it in years, but I remember my brother and I fighting over the tip because it was the leanest part of the tongue.

    My wife gags when I mention it, so I will enjoy your tongue vicariously.  Pig tongue is even better than beef tongue.

  • I've never tried it, but it seems like it would lend itself best to braising. Just kickin' ideas.

    I couldn't agree more!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Thanks man. I think this is a great place to express one's opinions

    I love beef tongue. To me, it is like filet mignon, except tongue is better.

    I have no idea what grilled beef tongue would taste like.  I've had it in tacos, but I think it is roasted and shredded.  The flavor is delicious, a lot like a traditional roast beef.  I believe it's best suited for a low and slow type cook.

    I totally understand being leery about trying it.  The fact that I blindly ordered "Dos tacos carne asada, y dos tacos con lengua" kept me from actually knowing I was eating tongue until after one taco was down.  Lucky for me, it was fantastic.
