  1. Cut three deep holes in the beef tongue and press the garlic cloves in the holes. Place the tongue in the crockpot then cover with beef broth, onion and a healthy amount of salt. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Once cooked, remove from broth to let cool for a couple minutes then peel back the skin of the tongue with the tastebuds. Shred or chop (I did both) then set back in the broth to soak up more flavor while you finish other ingredients.
  2. To help with time management on these, make your tomatillo salsa a day ahead so you don't have to mess with it the day of. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place tomatillos and jalapenos on the baking sheet. Use a brush to brush each pepper with a bit of ghee or coconut oil and then sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven to cook for 20-30 minutes, until charred on the outside. Let cool then run under cold water to help peel off and discard the skin and seeds of the jalapenos. Place all ingredients for the salsa in the food processor and blend until smooth. Place in the fridge to cool.


I eat paleo. If you did not notice from the blog name, well, that’s understandable. It’s not Pale Omg, like the skin color. I’m usually pretty tan. It’s actually pronounced pay-lee-o.m.g. There ya go, you did it! I just love food.
