    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.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    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
