Tongue Tacos – Brad Schepman

Whitetail Tongue Tacos

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!!!!


Instant Pot

  • 2-4 Deer Tongues
  • 1 or 2 Deer shanks if needed
  • 2 Cups Beef Broth
  • 1 Onion
  • ¼  Cup Chipotle Peppers
  • 2 Tablespoons of HUNTCHEF TACO TAKEDOWN


Street size flour tortillas 

  • Diced Green Onions
  • Diced Tomato
  • Dice Jalapenos 
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa Verde 


  • Add all of the Instant Pot ingredients to Instant Pot.  Lock down the lid, set the pressure at 70 lbs. and set the cook time to 45 minutes.
  • After 45 minutes remove the tongue and peel the skin off.
  • Strain onions and chipotle peppers from the instant pot to add onto tacos later. 
  • Slice the tongue and hock meat into small cubes.
  • Heat butter in cast iron pan.
  • Add the meat and sprinkle with more HUNTCHEF TACO TAKEDOWN. 
  • Sear until edges are somewhat crispy.
  • Grab some flour street tacos and load them up with the meat.
  • Top the street tacos with some of the onions and chipotle peppers. 
  • Add additional preferred toppings. 
  • Don’t forget a squirt of lime juice and the salsa Verde.
  • Finish off with some sour cream.
