That's because your family was taught correctly and you're not supposed to ask what is in Chinese food. Better a beef tongue than a cat, poodles and noodles, or cream of some young....nevermind.I made Broccoli beef Chinese food a while back using tongue for the beef, Never told the family it was tongue cuz they wouldn't have eaten it.... to this day they still tell me that was the best broccoli beef I've ever made
They always say, "Grandpa knows best"!!!!:spineyes:Sure like those beef tongues cooked, chilled and thin sliced in a big sour dough bun. Lots of mustard, pickles and tomato.
As grandpa once said, "If you get past the smell you got it licked." Oh, maybe that was another subject concerning tongue.
