Item of the Day – Buffalo Tongue

By | Gourmet, Item of the Day, Seafood, Smart Catch, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Buffalo Tongue

Item 98764 – 20 lb case

Tongue is often seasoned with onion and other spices, and then placed in a pot to boil. After it has cooked the skin is removed. Another way of preparing tongue is to scald it in hot water and remove the skin. Then roast the tongue in an oven, using the pan drippings to prepare a gravy.
