 Bison Tacos de Lengua - Beck & Bulow

INGREDIENTS:

  • One 1.5-2lb bison tongue
  • One large yellow onion, peeled
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 3-4 bay leaves
  • 1.5 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • bison tallow
  • Corn tortillas (2-3 per person)
  • Toppings: Salsa verde, sliced avocados, cilantro and chopped red onion

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Simmer the tongue in a large stock pot with the garlic, yellow onion, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt. After reaching a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for three hours. The tongue should be soft and tender.
  2. Remove the skin. Take the tongue out of the water and let it cool. Remove the skin-like covering from the tongue using your fingers or a small knife. If you like, you can also remove the rough patch of meat found where the tongue was attached to the bottom of the bison’s mouth.
  3. Slice the tongue in 1⁄4 inch slices. Heat some bison tallow in a pan on medium high and sauté the slices until they’re lightly browned on both sides.
  4. Remove the browned tongue from the pan and first cut the slices lengthwise into strips, then across again into small cubes.
  5. Heat the tortillas in a pan, then assemble tacos by adding a large spoonful of the diced tongue in the center of each tortilla topped with avocado, salsa verde, onion, and cilantro.
