Smoked Beef Tongue & Corned Beef Jerky

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

We had 1 corned beef eye of round left from St Pattys day at work. I decided to try to make it into jerky....its already cured....slices real easy at work....so what the heck! Why not?!   I removed it from the cry-o-vac package and sliced it lengthwise with the grain at 1/4 "....cut the slices in half then soaked it in some water to remove a little of the salt. About an hour. turns out it was too long I think.  I would have liked it to be a ittle stronger.  So far anyways....we'll see after it has had  a chance to cool overnight. Sorry I didnt get any before pics....

The jerky does have a subtle corned beef flavor. I will definately do this again if the situation arises. I just wont soak it as long....1/2 hour nextime

 

 

AND NOW THE TONGUE!!!!!

drool.gifI took a batch of beef tongue that needed used up at work and boiled it for a couple of hours with some pickling spices and a half of a jar of minced garlic.

my mistake was that I ran out of time at work and put the roaster pan of tongue still full of water in the cooler to cool down.   as the meat sat over night it soaked up alot of moisture and made the inner texture of the meat mushy...dum dum.

 It was still very good and the hickory smoke really added another layer of flavor that  was dang good.

Hey SOB, I see cow tongues in the meat section at my local sams club and I have always wondered what they were used for or if they were just cooked and eaten. Are they meaty or are they like a liver. Those look good from here with a little smoke ring.......... Nice....

Dam!  That tongue looks great!  Don't tell anybody.  We used to buy it for nothing.  Now it is just gourmet priced meat.

 

Good luck and good smoking!

That jerky looks awesome SOB, I got to give that a shot.

The tongue's sliced view looks pretty good too. I've never had it.  I never could get past the look of it raw to ever attempt to eat it. What's it taste like? and don't tell me chicken. biggrin.gif

Tongue is great, once you get over the thought of it.

 

I'm really diggin' the corned beef jerky. 

Not a lot of it around here, but it's a great idea.

I used to eat a lot of beef tongue as a kid, but haven't had any in years. Yours looks delicious! I see them at Wally World all the time, guess I'll have to get one & throw it on the smoker.

That ALL looks great SOB!

How did that jerky end up tasting?

 

I know tongue used to be cheap, because we ate it a lot when we were kids, and a self-employed Carpenter with a wife & 4 kids (in the 50s & 60s) had to pinch a few pennies.

 

Like Todd said, "It's great once you get over the look of it"----kinda like Shad Roe.  PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

Yes they are very meaty!!!  Think of a nice marbled rump roast....has almost the same flavor.  Nope... no liver taste. you have to boil, or pressure cook to get the very tough outer skin off. Once that is removed it is all meat.

Yeah it used to be you couldn't hardly give it away....now it is so over priced that you cant hardly sell it because anyone who knows how good it is is shocked away from buying it....and the people that might have tried it because it was cheap...are scared away from buying it because they dont want to waste $4.00lb on something they might not like.  Thank the overseas market for the inflation of price.....they pay big money for our animals organs and entrails!

Bear,

The Jerky turned out Great!!! After cooling down its flavor seems to come out better.  Its like being able to have a little taste of corned beef whenever I want for a snack......Hmmm....maybe next it'll have to be pastrami jerky???  What do ya think?

Give it a try....if you can find some.  Or make your own CB Eye of Round. I think a crafty Ol'Bear like you would be up for that!
