Tongue is technically considered meat, yet it is classified as offal. Always scrub the tongue thoroughly before preparing and allow it to soak. Begin preparation in a cold pot, covering the tongue with cold water. It is necessary to peel the outer layer from the tongue prior to preparing the main dish. Although this is not a popular cut, it is truly tasty. Work with it and you will be pleasantly surprised.
