My sister, Karen, and I were at the Christmas breakfast table reminiscing as one does. The subject of beef tongue came up. Our mother, Claudia, would make beef tongue occasionally as we were growing up. I decided to whip some up to go with the Chickyssoise I was making for dinner.
The best pickled tongue I ever had was at a Basque restaurant in Fresno, California. The worst pickled tongue I ever had was at a Basque restaurant in Fresno. Done right this dish is a Tasty delight. Done wrong it is horrid.
