When I was a little girl I had the habit of asking my mom what she was going to make for dinner. She always prepared recipes that were new to me, but that always delighted my palate.
I remember my curiosity one particular day, after cleaning my plate and licking my fingers (and of course, getting a talking-to for my table manners), about the name of the tender, rica meat that she had prepared for me. Mom told me that she had tried a typical Uruguayan recipe called beef tongue, which is prepared stewed or with vinaigrette. On chillier days, I recommend preparing it with vinaigrette. It’s economical and contains few ingredients. In Uruguay it’s a classic as traditional as parrilladas, the Chivito and empanadas. I invite you to try a recipe filled with traditional flavors; I invite you to get to know Uruguay!
