I have a series called Feeding a Farmer. It’s food that can be prepared in a few minutes to make a meal for those last minute meal times. To find out how this all originated, check out this link. Keep in mind, none of these foods are glamorous…they are fast…and not too bad tasting.
Yep…you read that right….Beef Tongue. I know many of you will stop reading right there and I’m okay with that, but I like to keep what I write about on the real and fortunately (or unfortunately-however you want to take it) cow tongue is a food that Hubby eats and likes, so I make it.
This isn’t necessarily a fast food but it can be made ahead of time so it’s ready anytime Hubby walks through the door.
When the farmer that Hubby works for butchers, we always end up getting the tongue meat. Hubby grew up eating it and thinks nothing of it. I didn’t and can eat it as long as I don’t think about tongues or licking while I chew :)
To make it I just pop the tongue into the pressure cooker with water and beef bullion. Once it’s cooked, I take it out and skin it. (I didn’t include that picture so not to gross some of you out.)
Then I add a combination of chopped onions, pepper, garlic and horseradish along with some mayo.
Like this, it actually tastes good and I can’t really tell the difference in taste between it and regular beef. Spread this on bread with a tomato and lettuce and it make a pretty good sandwich….and that’s how I feed my farmer.
