Slow-cooked beef's tongue Moroccan style - Recette de langue de bœuf à la marocaine

I know people can get squeamish about offal and non-meat parts of calves and sheep but in Morocco we are sort of past this bit (most of us).

Moroccan beef's tongue with tomato and less tomato paste

The easiest way to serve the tongue Moroccan style is to steam it over a bed of mint leaves then once tender, serve it with cumin, salt and cayenne and do not forget a hot mint tea.

But there is another succulent way of cooking it, a mchermel-way, and that means to cook it in a thick sauce where the basic flavour profile is a version of the iconic chermoula.

The tongue is ideally cooked in a pressure cooker to cut on the time it needs to become extremely tender. But I cook in in the oven for 4 to 5 hours and it comes out so soft. I just reduce the sauce on the stove for a few minutes, adjust the seasoning and that's all. So basically the oven does the job for me.

The beef's tongue is more requested than the sheep's tongue because it has much more to offer in term of meat.

So grab the recipe from below and head to my YouTube channel to watch how to make it.
