  1. Place beef tongue in a crock pot, pour over 1-2 cups of water, and cook on low for 8 hours.
  2. After 8 hours, remove from crock pot, and carefully removed the thick skin from the tongue (it helps to use a fork).
  3. Using two forks, shred the beef tongue.
  4. Place shredded tongue into a cast iron skillet and turn on to medium heat.
  5. Combine all spices in a small mixing bowl. (Save extra in a small bag or empty jar.)
  6. Pour chorizo spice over meat and stir until seasoned equally.
  7. Add water or left over broth from the crock pot as needed to help mobilize the spices, a little goes a long way.
  8. Start with a quarter cup of liquid and stir.

    Is this really for 3 oz of tongue, or is it supposed to be 3 lbs? Looks like the spices would really overwhelm 3 oz of meat, so I’m guessing it’s a typo and supposed to be 3 lbs of tongue (the weight of an average tongue, more or less). Plus, who’s gonna kick up the crock pot for 8 hours for only 3 oz of meat?

    what does tongue taste like lol I am getting a few pounds soon and am new to offal.

      When cooked, it shreds easily and tastes like roast beef. It’s amazing!! Don’t be afraid of it. Tongue is a nice cut of ‘offal’ to get started with. Very forgiving, and tastes great.
