It’s been a week since election day and what a shit week it’s been. I didn’t take the election too well (understatement), work is all shades of meh, and both Brian and Margot have fleas! So for the past couple of days I’ve been doing nothing but flea combing (gross), sprinkling diatomaceous earth on the carpets and furniture, and then vacuuming it all up. All mixed in with sobbing and existential dread.
So please excuse me that it took me so much longer to post this than I intended.
But on to bigger things! This is the last of the three recipe cards I purchased from the Hannibal prop auction back in April. (if you missed them the others are Pork Liver w. Bacon and Italian Sweet Sausage).
For some goddamned reason it took me FOREVER to get my hands on a beef tongue. I basically called the meat department of every grocery store within a five mile radius of my house.
But I finally found one at Wegmans!
All four pounds of it!
If you watched the end of the video and now want your own copy of the most fabulous cookbook Feeding Hannibal by Janice Poon, buy your own copy through this site to support DiS1972!
Now, do you want to know what I did with the rest of the tongue….?
I made tongue tacos, of course!
The tongue, because it was so much like pulled pork, was the perfect taco filler.
A little lime, cilantro, avocado, and onion made this delectable!!! We also had some yummy Mexican-style roast veggies on the side.
This Hannibal dish was a success! I seriously want to continue making dishes from the TV show, so stay tuned!
P.S. The sauce on Hannibal’s tongue was merely horseradish and heavy cream!
