    1                    Beef Tongue NOTE!!
   This is a favorite dish of my family’s, especially on
   holidays like Easter and Christmas. Most people cringe
   at the idea of eating a cow’s tongue, but actually the
   meat is very tender, and even if you have to close
   your eyes and plug your nose to try it, please do. I
   guarantee it won't be what you expect!

   at room temp.
