  • There is a tongue and a heart in my crock pot right now...

    I'm not sure if I should be excited, or scared! LOL

    My plan at the moment is to cook the tongue and heart a few hours (just salt pepper and water in there right now), then peel it and stick it back in the crock pot with some tomato sauce and mexican style seasonings, maybe some bacon fat too.

    Those of you who have done tongue or heart, does this sound like a good plan?

    Sounds good to me.

        Yes - you DO have to peel the tongue. And remove the little bones at the back of it - then it is fine. But it is like meat wrapped in a wrapper and protective bits! Delicious when prepared and cooked ......

                WalMart tongue

                I saw a tongue at WalMart today. I just couldn't do it. I looks just like a big tongue!

                  Peeling the tongue was...interesting! It literally smelled like cow breath while I was peeling it, but that went away when it was fully peeled. I chopped the tongue and the heart into bite sized stew pieces, added a quart of homemade tomato sauce, a chopped onion, some chopped cilantro, and a bunch of cumin. It smells quite delicious now!

                    Heart can just be cooked in the suace. I made a green curry using beef heart and veal kidney the other day. Made up the sauce then added diced heart and kidney. Cooked on low on the stove for about 2.5hrs.

                    Agree that tongue is trickier as it needs peeling

                      I used to go to a Korean BBQ place that had tongue. They sliced it thin, and you grilled it over coals on the table, and it was DELICIOUS.

                        Hmm. It has a flavor that is distinct, and I get the feeling I've had it before, although I don't know where. Once you get over the "I'm eating tongue" weirdness, it's actually quite good. I think next time I'll trim some off even below the part you peel off, those bits are the ones that have the slight cow breath flavor. The heart is delicious!

                          Well I have only had bison tongue which the Indians revered for good reason. I find that spices in the crock pot while cooking don't do much since the tongue membrane stops them from infusing the meat. You absolutely have to peel the outer membrane. My advice would be to peel it, and then slice it then cross wise. Each morning I'll fry up a few of those slices in butter with some spices. It's a great breakfast and one tongue will last for about 3 or 4 breakfasts. I usually go through a bison tongue a week or so, it's the breakfast of champions.

                            Points if it's a cat's tongue, and a black heart.

                              I have a hard time finding tongue for sale, let alone bison tongue. I'm envious on one a week!
