Beef Tongue in Sauce



Beef Tongue Preparation

Cover the tongue with cold water, (optional 1-2 Tbs baking soda) and let it come to a rolling boil.  Remove the tongue and discard the water and any foam.  Replace tongue in kettle, cover with fresh cold water, and bring to a boil again.  Skim off any scum that appears.  Remove the tongue, place it in the sink, and run cold water over it, while removing all traces of skin and roots.  Slice as required for the receipt used.
