Fall in love with beef all over again. Premium Beef Tongue is rich in flavor and tender when cooked properly. It is a delicacy in many cultures around the world, including Jewish cuisines and you can prepare it in various ways, such as braising, pickling, smoking, or grilling.
Home Cook's Recommendation
There are many cherished family recipes for tongue out there. We want to put a word out, though for the ones that include the step of frying slices of beef tongue after it’s peeled. That crisp outer layer encasing the fatty meat is something special!
Some great sides for beef tongue are roasted vegetables drizzled with some olive oil, vinegar, or honey, and sauteed bok choy, which can provide some freshness and contrast to the rich tongue. You can also toss greens with some garlic, soy sauce, or sesame oil for extra flavor.
Red wines are a beautiful match for the intensity and complexity of the tongue, and we cannot recommend them enough.
