Japan's most favorite yaki niku dish - the gyu tan, sliced beef tongue. The slices are 2mm thin and only require a few seconds over the yaki niku or electric grill at home. For best results use only little sea salt and/or lemon juice - we know it is hard to resist the yakiniku sauce but Morgan Ranch beef is full of rich and buttery flavor and we always recommend not to cover up the taste for best results and experience.

Beef Tongue Slices Recipe Instructions
Translated from Japanese: It's been a long time since I have last eaten beef tongue. It’s sliced and soft, easy to eat and delicious.
I devoured it and finished it quickly.
Translated from Japanese: If you compare it to Japanese Wagyu, there is no sweet taste to it. I also wondered if the American beef with that bright red color would be delicious. I grilled it simply and the meat was filling because of its chewiness.
Translated from Japanese: It’s my preferred beef tongue thickness. I grilled one slice as it is, grilled the second with lemon on top, the thirst slice with salt….
It was delicious no matter what.
