Garlicky Creamy Beef Tongue

Have you ever eat beef tongue in your life? Some people may be squeamish about eating beef tongue because of its appearance. Others may consider it only a food for low-income populations. Some fear it will be tough or rough in texture. In fact, many fine cooks consider beef tongue to be a delicacy.Hubby requested me to look for beef tongue. He had tried Spanish cooking beef tongue and keep praising beef tongue it's a fantastic great dish!! I looked high and low for beef tongue but not many store carry beef tongue.At last I found beef tongue at Asian store at the frozen section!! Beef tongue is a byproducts of cow and it's high in protein, low in sodium, and contains no sugar or carbohydrates, making it an ideal food for people on low-carb, low-glycemic, or high protein diets. As an added benefit, it is also high in vitamin B-12, which boosts the production of red blood cells. Hubby was amazed with the softness of beef tongue I cooked.He said the beef tongue's texture is tender and softer than Fillet Mignon!!

1 average size tongue,about 3 pounds(thawed,previously frozen)
2 medium size onion,peeled and cut into 1/2
4-5 cloves garlic
1 cup cream/ while milk
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp ground black pepper powder
2 tbsp beef bouillon powder
salt to taste

1:Wash tongue and place in a large pot of water to cover. (I used pressure cooker to cut down the boiling time).Simmer with onion and 2 tbsp salt until no longer pink, about 50 minutes per pound of tongue. I boiled in pressure cooker for 35 -40 minutes.

2:Remove from water and let rest until cool enough to handle. Peel skin from tongue and trim gristle.

3:Heat large skillet with oil and garlic at medium heat until lightly brown,add in milk ,seasoning and whole beef tongue for 3-5 minutes.Removed tongue from heat and cut into 1/4 inch slices.

4:Serve with bread ,tako or rice.

Oh well, not me! Not a tongue buying person but willing to try for sure. Just had some duck tongue recently, a China delicacy.
