Beef Tongue Sandwich by Rose

Rose Selvar


Don't knock it until you've tried it!

I learned about this sandwich about 42 years ago when I was dating the wonderful guy I married. His mom used to make this every time we drove from Florida to Ohio to visit with her because she knew how much her son loved it. Yes, I was brave enough to try it...and I liked it too.

BTW when you get down to the thin end of the tongue, you use that to make another great sandwich. I'll probably post that recipe soon too as I'll get down to that part of the tongue soon! 2/28/13

beef tongue cooked until tender
a little of butter
a little mayonnaise
a little mustard
2 slice
sandwich bread
my son and his girlfriend bought us an electric pressure cooker for christmas and i had a beef tongue in the freezer so i decided to "break the pot in" by making my beef tongue in it. took 55 minutes.


1Wash your hands.
Place the cooked beef tongue on a plate for slicing.
2Place two slices of bread on a clean working surface. Put a thin layer of butter on one slice followed by a thin layer of mustard (to your taste). On the other slice spread a layer of mayonnaise.
3Take a sharp knife and carefully start slicing the tongue beginning at the thick end (not the tip). Place the slices on one half of the sandwich.
4Top the meat with the other slice of bread forming a sandwich. Cut the sandwich in half for ease in eating it.
5Sometimes I cut my sandwich into quarters like this. This sandwich is especially good when accompanied by some bread and butter chips (our favorite sandwich pickle).
