Back when I was on that paleolithic diet, someone asked if I would also try eating some organ meat. I said yes. A coworker of mine, Pascale Pigeon, happened to be cooking beef tongue and was thoughtful enough to save some for me. And then it stayed in my freezer for over a month. But today I finally ate it! Thankfully, it escaped the fate of freezer burn.
Here are some photos for you…
And here’s the recipe that Pascale used: http://www.wasabibratwurst.com/pickled-tongue/
It was delicious! I admit I was a little freaked out about eating tongue, but it wasn’t all that different from any other meat. It had a distinctive texture and flavor, but at least in this preparation, it was surprisingly tender. Thank you Pascale!
And, of course, thank you for reading.
