About this recipe: My mother used to make this and it seemed like she boiled the tongue forever. It's hard to believe now that as kids we used to fight over the tip, and the next day - tongue sandwich to school with lots of mayonnaise.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 beef tongue
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr5min 

  1. Place the tongue in a stockpot with the salt, and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until the outer skin begins to peel off, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Peel off the thick outer skin, and serve.


This is great cold in sandwiches with lots of mustard!
