    Default Yes dear...that is a cow head in the cooler next to the t-bones

    Ok, so I went to a Mexican market today that was recommended by a local called Pro's Ranch Market.

    http://www.prosranch.com/Default.aspx

    It was awesome as far as the variety of produce and meats they had there, all imported from Mexico. They make a lot of things in-house as well. They literally had every part of the cow for sale in the cooler-lips, tongue, eyes, rocky mountain oysters, heart, The WHOLE Head, ect... So what in the world could you use a COW HEAD for? Has anyone here ever cooked a cow head?

    They also had 2'x2' pork rinds, very hard to resist. The next trip I will remember a camera. I have never come across a cow head looking at me from a cooler-LOL

    A little Lipton onion soup mix would go a long way.

    I once knew an old mexican lady that was 107 the last time I saw her.

    She said the key to long life was to eat a boiled goat head for sunday Lunch after mass.

    At 107 I was not going to argue.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Bleh,LOL! in most areas,it is illegal to sell the head of a cow,due to the risk of mad cow disease.

    One would have to be mad to eat it so that would cancel the mad cow disease.
    "Mad" people are immune to it.

    Barbcoa.

    Slow cooked cow head or as a friend described it cooked cow face. I've never had it but he said it tasted great until he asked what was in it.

    I'm sorry, I could never go with a cow head. Now, if you had two of them that would be a different story. Everyone knows two heads are better than one.

    Do they still sell cow brains? We used to get them from a small butcher shop in the North End (Boston) and fried them up with eggs for breakfast or lunch.

    You can get CMJ from any neural tissue in the animal, not just the brains. You gotta hope someone is checking the animals we eat.

    We used to fry up the lungs too at my grandpa's place. Called Pluck. Cut into small pieces and fried with garlic and onions in some olive oil. You'd never know what it was once cooked.

    Then there's tripe. Cow's stomach. Never really did like that even if drowned in spaghetti sauce.

    Nope. It's pluck. That's what it takes to eat it.

    Well, looks like we're both right then 'cause that's what you'd have after you ate it.

    Definitely nothing I am looking to eat any time soon. Ya never know, I might get curious and pick one up. I will be sure to post a full review with pictures when that does occur.

    Yeah, think about it. Boiling that head you get boiled goat ear wax, boiled goat boogers, boiled goat snot and boiled anything they had stuck in their teeth. Oh yeah, yum, Uh huh.

    The only thing missing is ground chicken beaks and mouse droppings.
    But that's part of the secret family recipe.

    Well, both are sanctioned by the FDA as "minimally acceptable foreign substances".

    It's as close to international (read: foreign) cuisine some people will come to; so it must be OK.
