Lamb Tongue


Lamb Tongue is a tough, lean, boneless meat that needs long, slow braising.

When cooked, it can be sliced and served hot with the braising juices, or cooled and sliced and used as a sandwich meat.

Many people like Lamb Tongue pickled. You can buy pickled lamb tongues in jars at some stores, and at some delicatessen counters.
