My Taco de lengua project

As I promised here is the finished product. I removed the tongue for the liquid and sliced it into thin slices. I place a saute pan over a medium high flame, and added a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. I seasoned the slices with salt and pepper then placed them in the pan. It reminded me of searing foie gras, I was surprised as to the amount of fat that rendered from the tongue. After searing I cut the meat into strips and then cut them into squares. I placed some of the tongue in the center of a grilled flour tortilla and topped it with avocados, red onion, salsa verde, cilantro and a fresh diced tomato lime salsa.
