For those who have not tried beef tongue, you really should try it. The results went very well. My step-daughter loved it, but surprisingly my step-son was not impressed. I don't think it helped that his sister kept telling him it was beef tongue and that it's going to be gross. He's also not a real big fan of beef. He prefers chicken.
The beef tongue tastes very similar to beef roast. So all in all it went really well! Unfortunately if we decide to make it again, we'll have to make it when we don't have the kids here or make something else for Q aka step-son.
