Whoever chose that picture deserves a nice, big, sloppy BJ.

I can't read that story without making the "ewwww" face. I'm afraid it's going to freeze that way.

Oh dear - no beef cheeks? I'm not sure I want to live if I can't have beef cheeks ever again.

Does cooking the living hell out of them all day in the crock pot kill mad cow disease?

The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday that Black Earth Meat Market Inc. is recalling approximately 99 pounds of beef tongue products because they may not have had the tonsils completely removed.

This isn't a big recall. I was a butcher for five years, and beef tongue usually weighed in between 2 and 7 pounds. At best, you're talking about 50 cow tongues if they were sourced from nothing but young females. Even though we were a small butcher shop, we would sell about three tongues a week, or around 180 annually (sales picked up during the holidays).

No, the protein in question has a "honey badger" attitude toward heat.

IIRC cooking does NOT stop mad cow or any other of the prion based diseases. Prions are weird like that.

Quick, someone make beef tonsils a delicacy, let capitalism work.

I love tongue.

I hadn't realized until now that there are tonsils attached to the tongue. I thought tonsils were attached to the roof of your mouth.

It'll behoove ya', to care for your uvula! Love, Sis.

Yeah, had some prosciutto wrapped venison tenderloin medallions with a coffee rub and port cherry reduction last week, they were a little on the rare side and I go "don't worry, the worst thing we can get from this isn't destroyed by cooking anyway." "thanks for always being a font of valuable information Sam. Asshole...l

In my travels I have come to learn that "local delicacy" is code for "we are so poverty stricken, we eat bits of the animal that other people wouldn't throw to their dogs".

Also "specialty of the region" is code for "it will be hilarious if we can persuade tourists to eat this".

I've never figured out which category haggis falls into -- possibly both?

Beef tongue....no thanks, I'll stick with the hot dogs until someone finds out that they're being recalled because part of the hog's anus might still be attached.

Bacon sammich, please.

Beef tongue is great. Love lengua tacos. It's like super beefy tender pot roast if cooked long and slow. And prion based diseases as stated earlier aren't destroy able I believe. That's why they tell you don't mess with beef brains.

Huh. Well, something that has a 1 in 10 billion chance of jumping to humans and no sign of infection of the source cattle certainly merits panic.

I'll bet Zimmern would say that beef tonsils are better than filet mignon, especially sauteed with chicken feet in snakehead fish roe.

Better tongue than tripe. Grandma (she dead now) used to cook it for special occasions. Nasty nasty nasty smell, didn't taste bad if you thought it was something else. Glad I will never have to eat it again.

Put it in food banks, solve the moocher problem.

I think Caen-style tripe stew is pretty damned tasty, but I never make it since it takes forever and it makes my apartment smell like a stockyard on a hot day for a week.

No it doesn't, but the weird thing is I see beef cheeks for sale here all the time. I can't get brains without bribing a butcher but beef cheeks aren't a problem.

What's this nasty smell you speak of? I've probably cleaned and cooked 50 over the course of my life and it just smells like beef stewing in a pot to me. Of course I usually whip up a spicy vege broth to stew them in, never just plain water.

She's got a tongue like an electric eel, and she likes the taste of a man's tonsils. Woof!
