Lengua (Beef Tongue)
Lengua is the Spanish word for 'tongue'. The human consumption of beef tongue dates back to the days of Paleolithic hunters, who preferred the fatty portions of the carcass including tongues, as well as organs, brains, feet and marrow.
The tongue is cooked in boiling water for upwards of two hours. After, the skin is often removed and the rest of the tongue is served.
It has a taste best described as roast beef that has been in a slow cooker all day.
