Did you know? Use our Beef Tongue to make some delicious tacos!

Prep Time: 

10 Minutes

Cook Time: 

50 Minutes

Total Time: 

1 Hour


4 Servings Per Pound


  • 1 - Zobel Family Farms Beef Tongue (2 - 3 Pounds)
  • ¼ of medium size onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt to taste
  • Water enough to cover the beef tongue

To Serve:

  • warm corn tortillas
  • 1 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup of chopped white onion
  • salsa of your choice.


  1. Rinse the beef tongue with water and place in your crockpot, add onion, garlic, bay leaf, salt, and water. Cover and set the crockpot on low for 8 hours. Cook until tender. If after 8 hours the meat is not tender enough to shred cook a little bit longer. Not all Crockpots work alike.
  2. Remove the Beef tongue from the crock pot and place in a large dish, remove skin using a knife to make a cut at first and discard. Trim off any fatty tissue at the bottom end. As you can see from the pictures above it is mostly meat.
  3. Shred the meat using 2 forks and place in a serving bowl with some of the cooking broth that has already been degrease and strained.


  • Cooking time using an INSTANT POT, prepare as directed and cook for 45 minutes in the pressure setting. 
  • For the Stove Top pressure cooker, cook for 1 hour.
