Tender Beef Tongue with Onions and Garlic

I made Tender Beef Tongue with Onions and Garlic.


  • 1 beef tongue
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno (optional), sliced in half or minced
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 bay leaf


Put all ingredients into a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then turn it down to a simmer for about 3 hours until tender. Let cool until you are able to handle. Peel off skin and slice.


Beef tongue can be eaten plain (many people recommend dipping it in mustard), pickled, or sauted until crispy.
