This was my first time eating tongue Mexican style. My mom made it sometimes when I was growing up, but it was a Hungarian recipe. I didn't like it from what I can remember, but I think that was more because it was tongue and I was a child!
I was surprised at the simplicity of this recipe.
You will need one cow tongue (we cooked three, but I have adjusted this recipe for one)
Rub all over with salt and oregano and place in a dutch oven.
Through in 2 bay leaves and 3 cloves of garlic.Add 1-2 cups water and turn on high heat for 5 minutes.
Turn down to low for 2 hours. Take out of pot. They will look like this.
Wait for meat to cool and cut into cubes. Reheat. (many people shred the meat while hot)
Place into warm corn tortillas, top with chopped onion, cilantro and a salsa of your choice.
