Pickle Meat (Spread for Making Sandwiches) by Rose

Rose Selvar


This recipe came from my Mother-in-law (Carol Selvar) who introduced me to it way back in the 1970's. Her son, my hubby, absolutely loves it so when I have left over beef tongue this is what I make with it.
The recipe that I posted on JAP last was the recipe for Beef Tongue Sandwiches. This recipe is for what you make out of the "tip end" of the tongue.
Just made it today and took pictures so I could post it here.

My mother-in-law did not hand me a handwritten recipe she just told me how to make it. The measurements are mine. 3/2/13

  1. Wash your hands.
    Since my grinder had not been used in YEARS, I decided to wash all the parts first. I like working with clean tools. LOL
  2. After assembling the grinder and placing a "catch" bowl under the mouth of the grinder, place the tip of the tongue into the upper slot of the grinder and begin the grinding process. Rotate the "catch" bowl as needed. It may be necessary to cut the tongue into pieces before grinding. Each grinder is different.
  3. Clean all the grinder parts of the beef that sticks to the grinder during the process and add to the "catch" bowl. Add the 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and the 3 Tablespoons of sweet pickle relish. Mix to combine.
  4. Place in a serving bowl so everyone can make a sandwich out of the pickle meat.
  5. This is my first sandwich made with this batch of pickle meat! YUMMY! You can adjust the mayonnaise and pickle relish on the sandwich itself to make it taste the way you want it.
    Enjoy!! 3/2/13
