‘Don’t knock it till ya tongue it’, should be the tagline of this post. OBV.
There was quite the uproar after I posted my Chicken Hearts Stroganoff recipe and I’m already assuming that this recipe will cause even more of a backlash from internet foodies. And do you know what I say to feeble-minded foodies like that? SUCKS FOR YOU, MORE TONGUE FOR ME.
But if you’ve been around here long enough, then you know that I get off on all things Primal. From chillin on the Squatty Potty, to eating organ meat, and even meditating daily. #marksissonismydaddy
The first time I tried beef tongue was at a traditional Mexican taco stand in Miami. I tried it along with tripe tacos and ones stuffed with pig ear, but I’d have to say that the tongue was my favorite by far. If you’ve never had tongue before then it tastes kind of like pot roast with a similar texture. As in, AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS.
People always ask me where to get quality beef tongue and the simplest answer to give is usually to check with your butcher first. I personally choose to order it from US Wellness Meats because their grass fed meat is reasonably priced and shipping is only a $7.50 flat rate with a minimum purchase amount. Their tongue is especially awesome because I pay the same price for a 3lb tongue at my local Publix Supermarket, and that is only conventionally raised.
If you need more persuading to add organ meats and unusual cuts into your diet, just keep in mind that beef tongue is loaded with B-12, iron, and niacin. These vitamins and nutrients aid in keeping even the most ‘healthiest’ person at their prime.
