Look "crazy Lady" I was promised some tongue!:biggrin:

Love the title, I was worried that I had click the wrong site button.

Looks like one delicious dish, haven't had tongue since I was a kid.

Well, I finally got it all done. So much fun and soooo delicious! Yes, Rick, I did wash it very well. Even scrubbed it with a brush for a good while. It was on the smoker for 5 hours, then inside to cool and in to the fridge. This is what it looked like when I took it out. I skimmed all the fat off, removed the tongue, strained the sauce and then started the reduction.



 





 



 



The skin came right off without any problems. I let the cold tongue hang out while I reduced the sauce, then it went back in to heat through.



 





 





 



I prepped my veggies. I made some baby carrots that were cooked in the sous vide with a little brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. After they came out I seared them in the CI. I also did very slow cooked onions and mushrooms. The tongue is sitting on top of that.



 





 





 



I also made garlic mashed potatoes that I piped out in to roses, topped with parm and under the broiler.



 





 



I love beef and tomatoes so I slow roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic (for the potatoes) for three hours at 225F. I topped the tomatoes with Meyer lemon zest since I found some at the store yesterday.



 





 



And here are some plated pics. I cut "leaf" shapes out of cabbage and blanched them in salted water and arranged them around the potatoes to look like roses with leaves. Not quite green enough, but I love potatoes and cabbage together. It was delicious.



 





 





 





 



What a great meal!!!
