Deer tongue tacos are a favorite in our house. Deer tongues are a lot smaller than beef tongues so you should figure 1 tongue per person. When I don’t have enough tongues, I add in one or more shanks off of the legs. The meat cooks well with the tongue and the bone adds a ton of flavor. So the next time you get a deer or 2 throw the tongues and a shank in an instant pot with some HUNTCHEF TACO TAKEDOWN and be prepared to have your wild flavor tastebuds to be working overtime!!!!
