" Look Who's Talking Too" Bite Your Tongue Tacos

I'm the baby, gotta love me!! Now, give me my dinner!

You will need:
For the tongue:

  • 1 two pound beef tongue
  • 1 head garlic, cut in half
  • 2 white onions, peeled and quartered
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 tbl salt
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 5 black peppercorns
  • cold water to cover

For the salsa:

  • 1/2 pound tomatillos
  • 1/2 pound tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For service:

  • 4 tbl olive oil
  • 1 dozen corn tortillas
  • 6 limes
  • 1 box of tongue depressors
  • 1 bottle Mrs. Cooper's colic remedy

Directions:
1. Make the pie crust: In a medium bowl, mix together the flours, salt and sugar. Add the shortening and using a pastry blender or two knives, work it into the flour until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add butter and continue cutting it in until the bits are no larger than small peas. Add the yogurt one tablespoon at a time, mixing with a fork after each addition to moisten the dough evenly. Using your hands, gently shape the dough into a disc. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 20 minutes.

2. Prepare the tongue: Scrub the tongue under running water and place in a large pot. If the tongue is much more than 2 lbs, cut in half lengthwise.

3. Add the garlic, onion, carrots, celery, salt and bay leaves. Cover with water and set over high heat.

4. When the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat, half cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

5. While the tongue simmers, make the salsa: Heat a dry cast iron griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Place the tomatillos, tomatoes, garlic and jalapenos on the griddle and pan roast for about 10 minutes, until their skins began to blister.

6. Transfer the roasted ingredients to a blender or food processor along with the salt and half of the cilantro. Puree for about 30 seconds, transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining cilantro.

7. Remove the tongue from the pot and rinse with cold water to cool a little before slicing in half lengthwise.
