Here in Spokane, our wonderful newspaper, The Spokesman Review, revived Dorothy Dean and her recipes from the decades ago. Some look yummy, some look weird and none would qualify as fast food. Some I might try; some I never would.
Take this one: Curried Tongue.
1 #3 pound beef tongue; 6 cups water; 2 1/2 tsp salt; 1 medium onion, chopped; 1 cup celery, chopped; 2-4 tsp curry powder; 3 TB flour; 1/3 cup water. Wipe the beef tongue with a damp cloth and place in cooker covered with the water. Add the salt and cook on high heat until steaming and then reduce heat to low and cook for 2 hours. Remove the tongue, skin the tongue and replace in the liquid with vegetables and curry powder. Make a gravy from broth, flour and water.
Do let me know if you’re brave enough (or desperate enough?) to try this.
