Lengua is one of my favorite cuts of meat. Tender, fatty, flavorful. Would pretty much eat it every day of the week if I could.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Cover lengua with water in a pot, with bay leaves, cinnamon stick, 2.5 tsp salt, half a head of garlic and 1 onion and simmer for 3 hours until tender. Remove outer skin and discard. Chop meat into bite-sized pieces.
  2. While lengua is cooking, mix dough ingredients together until dough ball forms (shouldn't be sticky or brittle). Roll out between dusted parchment paper pieces and cut out tortilla-sized shapes (I used the underside of a coconut oil lid for this ;) ), or break off about 1 tb of dough at a time and press in a tortilla press/roll out manually.
  3. Cook on hot non-stick pan or grill until slightly toasted on each side (don't overcook or tortilla shells will become hard/crunchy).
  4. Make crema (whisk ingredients together) and chop radishes/onions/cilantro.
  5. Heat up a saute pan and cook 1 minced onion and 6 cloves of minced garlic in 1 tb lard. Add lengua, ½ tsp salt and cook until browned (just a few minutes).
  6. Assemble your tacos! Have a taco bar! Have a taco party! Eat tacos forever, cuz they're awesome.
