Steps

  • First, wash your tongue thoroughly (hehe). Then put it in a large pot and cover the tongue ¾ of the way up with warm water. Bring the water to a boil and lower to a simmer and simmer it covered for an hour and a half.Cool the tongue, skin, trim off any gristle and gross looking pieces and cut into pieces. Season tongue liberally with salt and pepper.In a large dutch over, heat grapeseed or any high heat oil over medium high heat. Then brown tongue on all sides, about 8 minutes total.
  • Remove the tongue, then add in sliced onion and carrots and brown those until well colored, about 7 minutes. Lower heat to medium and add in minced garlic and saute for an additional minute.Then add in tomato paste, increase heat to medium high and brown for an additional 7 minutes until the paste is a rich brownish red color. Deglaze with red wine, making sure to scrape up all the good bits stuck to the pan. Simmer until wine is reduced by half.Then add in 1 Tablespoon salt, 2 teaspoons black pepper, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika and sugar and put meat back in the pan.
  • Add chicken broth until tongue is a little more than halfway covered.Bring everything to a boil, lower to a simmer and cover. Braise tongue for about 3 hours until very tender but not falling apart.
  • Let cool at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Cut into pieces, and make tacos! Or eat as is.I served mine with avocado, red sauerkraut, cilantro and green onions as garnish!
