Tongue meat is rich in calories and fatty acids, as well as zinc, iron, choline, and vitamin B12. This meat is considered especially beneficial for those recovering from illness or for women who are pregnant. Cow tongues are really good at tasting, they may even taste things that we humans cannot perceive…. … (no not really) It tastes like beef. But beefier than beef.
Cow tongue, rub some salt and hot water to a bowl, place on medium heat and cook for 15 minutes. Take it out of the hot water and peel the white thick layer off the tongue. Now truth be told some of the white tough skin can be stubborn to peel, simply get a sharp knife and scrape till clean.
Suitable for slow cook or braised.
