  1. Add the tongue, ghee, stock, garlic, half of a chopped red onion and spices to a crockpot. Turn to high and braise for 5 hours. 
  2. After 5 hours remove pork tongue with tongs, and remove the thin outer skin. The skin will already be separating. Make a small incision with kitchen scissors, and the skin will peel right off. 
  3. Once the skin is removed, slice the pork tongue thinly or into bite size pieces. 
  4. Place the meat back into the pot of stock and braise for another half hour or so. 
  5. Remove the meat with a slotted spoon into a bowl and set aide. 
  6. Warm the tortillas on a hot plate or flat skillet with a little ghee until browned and toasty. 
  7. Fill each tortilla with meat, grated cheese, cilantro, red onion, tomato or your favorite taco toppings.


Love heat? Add in extra pepper or top your tacos with hot salsa or hot sauce.

Not a fan of spicy? Omit the peppers and add your favorite herbs.
