It's not actually pickled! Makes excellent sandwiches or eat as an appetizer with bread or crackers. Very simple recipe with excellent flavor, with a few Basque tips to get it right!
Ingredients
  • 1 tongue
  • 4 cloves of crushed garlic
  • ⅛ cup of cider vinegar
  • ⅛ cup of vegetable oil (or olive)
  • 1 small bunch of chopped parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Bring tongues to a boil until tender in plain water for ~3 to 5 hours or 50 minutes per pound depending on size (my grandma adds some herbs).
  2. Let rest for ~5 minutes then peel skin from tongue.
  3. Refrigerate tongue for 24 hours until firm in order to be able to slice it thin.
  4. Crush garlic, very important to bring out the oil.
  5. Mix vinegar, oil, crushed garlic, and chopped parsley.
  6. Slice very thin, about 2-3 millimeters. Slice what you want to eat, save the rest.
  7. Spread on plate then add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Drizzle dressing over sliced tongue and serve immediately.
Notes
If the vinegar sits too long on the tongue it will make the meat too soft.
