What’s up, folks? Spring is on its way, making me want to open the windows, but at the same time avoiding it because I don’t want pollen all over everything. 😂 Don’t you wish there was some way to avoid pollen? Because if there was, I would totally avoid it.
Anyway, today we’re talking about tongues. Well, really, a tongue. It’s not my normal post, but hey! You like lifestyle, strange posts, and today I’m here to bring it to you.
But before we get into the post, I must tell you. Don’t sit on children’s benches while you’re watching nursery. The bench might just crumple underneath you. (Not like I would know from experiance though..
.I learned from experiance.)
I’m an adventuresome person, especially when it comes to food. I don’t like eating, but if you must eat, you might as well try something different every time, right? (As an example, pepperoni, seaweed, and goats cheese is a combo I have actually eaten.) At least, that’s my philosophy, so I finally managed to convince my mom to buy me this…
Well, it’s actually two cow tongues. If anyone loves reading books about the West in the 1800s, you should know that bison tongue is considered the best part of the bison. If that’s what they thought about the bison, why wouldn’t it be true about cow tongues? And so I’ve wanted cow tongue for a while now.
The tongue comes with the skin still on it, which made my heart so happy. I’m a weird person, and I spend about five minutes in front of the mirror just looking at the papillae on my tongue, because they’re just so cool. So the thought of touching the cow’s papillae made me extremely happy.
I pretty much just sat there for a few minutes rubbing my fingers against it and shivering in happiness. It felt like, AMAZING.
So, the first thing
we my mom did after taking it out of the package was throwing it into the crock pot with some onions, and left it cooking overnight.
So, the next morning, my mom took it out, and the next step was skinning it, which was easier than we all thought it would be. The skin pretty much just fell off of the meat.
And it smelled delicious! (At least to me, my mom said she got super grossed out while she made it.) I was impatient for dinner to come so we could try it. *shivers with expectation*
My mom fried it in a frying pan with more onions, and it kinda just shredded itself. She served it with horseradish sauce.
We also had delicious greens and French fries with it. AND GUYS. CAN I PLEASE HAVE MORE? It tasted similar to mutton, which is one of my favorites, and yet it still had the delicious beef flavor, and I WANT MORE. PLEASE?!
So I encourage you to try beef tongue if you’re looking for a new thing to eat. It wasn’t very labor intensive, and it tasted A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Do you enjoy food posts like this? What is the craziest thing you’ve eaten? Do you like new foods?
(Yes, two cows were actually harmed in the making of this post.)
