To make the most out of this unique cut of meat, we’re sharing our recipe for Beef Tongue Tacos with Creamy Green Salsa. In this recipe, we start by simmering the beef tongue in a flavorful broth made with onions, garlic, bay leaves, salt, and black peppercorns. This slow and low cooking method ensures that the tongue becomes incredibly tender and full of flavor.
Once the beef tongue is cooked, we remove the outer skin or membrane and slice or shred the meat into bite-sized pieces. Then, we assemble the tacos by placing the beef tongue onto warm corn tortillas and topping it with fresh cilantro, chopped onion, and a squeeze of lime juice.
To take these tacos to the next level, we’ve also included a recipe for a creamy green salsa made with ripe avocados, tangy tomatillos, fresh cilantro, garlic, jalapeño peppers, and lemon juice. This zesty and flavorful salsa adds a bright and refreshing contrast to the rich and savory beef tongue.
