For sous vide beef tongue I've seen 60C for 48 hours and I think Thomas Keller suggests 70C for 24 hours. I'd love to hear what you end up doing with it.

Hi Jason,

I tried 70C for 24 and while tasty I did find it a bit tough. I am trinking of trying the 60C for 48 next time however, the meat is very lean and I wonder if this will make it any softer?

Thanks

Jonny

I think the 60C for 48 hours would definitely make the sous vide beef tongue softer than the 70C for 24 hours. The extra time should allow more of the meat tissue to break down and tenderize.

I just used 70 C (158 F) for 40 hours and the tongue was extreamly tender. Spiced w salt, marjoram, lemon juice and a small amount of oregano. I also put the tongue in while it was still frozen. IMO, this is the best way to cook this cut of meat.
