Properly prepared beef tongue is tender, nutritious and delicious. Beef tongue is a solid muscle containing no fat and no connective tissue, so that dishes with beef tongue are easy to digest. Furthermore, beef tongue is really healthy: It contains large amounts of protein, zinc and iron as well as the entire spectrum of B vitamins.
Cooked beef tongue is served not only as a cold appetizer, but also in salads. In our recipe, we prepare a salad of carrots, beans, lettuce and cucumbers and add beef tongue. To prepare a lighter version, you can skip the bread and prepare the salad not with mayonnaise, but with sour cream or yoghurt. Enjoy!
