My mother, Claudia, did not make beef tongue very often, maybe only once or twice a year as I was growing up. Still we did have it and really liked it. I think the reason we did not have it very often is that it requires a long prep time and very slow cooking. With five hungry kids to feed it was just too much trouble to make as anything but a special treat. That is the childhood memory I am chasing.
