Stewed beef tongue recipe (slow cooker).  This recipe also is known as “Lengua”- beef tongue with vegetables cooked in a slow cooker. The beef tongue has a mild taste, so add as many aromatics to the pot, as you wish, starting from black peppercorns, crushed garlic, and bay leaf. Also, you can use fresh or dried herbs.

This recipe contains vegetables, such as onion and carrots. I used water to cover the meat and vegetables, but you can substitute it for low-sodium beef broth or even dry red wine if you decide to cook it without vegetables.

There are too many options to cook tongues-from an electric pressure to a large saucepan. Also, you can braise it, sear or simmer. To braise it, simply trim off the gristle and cartilage from the tongue, then and cut out the U-shaped hyoid bone at the base. Make a 1-inch (2.5 cm)-long slice through the center of the base of the tongue.

Place the tongue in a large saucepan and cover with water, beef broth, or dry red wine. Boil over medium-high heat for 15 minutes, skimming the froth from the surface as needed. Remove from the heat and drain it. get more details here, if you’re interested to braise it.
