This is a great basic recipe for tongue. I add Bay leaves, chopped round onions, a couple of garlic cloves (peeled, left whole) black pepper and a little more salt than what this recipe calls for to my water. (I also save the stock for later uses) After about three hours or so, when tongue is tender and skin can be easily lifted with a fork, take out and place in cold water for 5-10 minutes (just to cool), this makes peeling the outer skin off a little easier to handle. Discard skin. Slice the tongue in 1/4" slices and place in casserole dish or glass cake pan (Whichever is best for you), cover to keep warm.

This dish is great served with a green vegetable (asparagus, green beans, spinach, etc) and your favorite starch. And its still great for sandwiches the next day, no need for mayonnaise, just use the gravy. Sooo tender.
