How To Make pickled beef tongue sandwich by eddie

  • 1
    Put all the ingredients from the brine into a large sauce pan and stir well over low heat until the salt and sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil, turn off heat and let cool.
  • 2
    Place the tongue in a plastic container and pour the brine over the tongue using something to weigh down the tongue in the liquid. Refrigerate 4 to 5 days. On the 5th day remove the tongue from the brine and soak in fresh water overnight in the refrigerator.
  • 3
    Place the salted tongue in a pot along with the simmering ingredients, bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer 3 to 5 hours depending on the size of the tongue. The tongue is ready when very soft. Peel away the rubbery lining.
  • 4
    Serve the tongue hot or cold with horseradish and mustard. For sandwiches slice thinly and use ray bread with plenty of horseradish and mustard.
