Slow Cooker Veal Tongue with Bok Choy Pesto - Outstanding news

Slow Cooker Veal Tongue with Bok Choy Pesto | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Veal, or beef tongue, when done right, is very tender, juicy and delicious. I served it with some homemade bok choy pesto, but you can use other pesto or even salsa verde.

Veal tongue is high in fat, and like other organ meats, it is very nutrient dense (an excellent source of vitamin B12, zinc, iron and selenium). It has a unique, but mild flavour, tastes like muscle meat, fleshy, firm, but so much more tender and succulent. The tongue has a thick, bumpy skin and once cooked, it must be peeled while it's still warm. Don't let the meat cool too much, as the skin will stick.
