Extra Points – Heating It Up

Heating It Up  

The other day, I got some beautiful beef tongue from my neighbor. Some of you that know me personally know I’m a foodie and I have always loved beef tongue since my dad used to make it when I was a kid. My neighbor Scott had smoked it and sliced it for me, but he did warn it was only cooked to 169 degrees, so it was on the “red” side.

I like my meat a little more well done and for beef tongue, more tender. My wife Barb had a great idea. She suggested that I slow cook it to get to where I wanted it. I added beer, garlic, onions, salt, and pepper…and slow cooked it for 7 hours. The result was an incredibly tender and flavorful meal.

When you cook beef long and slow with great seasonings, you gain tremendous results. In business, the same concept is true. Being consistent, keeping momentum, staying hot, and constantly adding to your skills will heat up your career and business. Many people try to cook too fast and then either burn their food, or simply mis-cook it. When you focus on being consistent heat and mix in the “flavors,” you’re results will be as good as my beef tongue!

    Bonjour Dan, I especially relate to your article as I adore beef tongue. I used to cook it in Australia and serve it with a hot mustard sauce. Your recipe however sounds much better! And I love the way you related the slow cooking process to building a business-or for that matter, living a life. Cheers, Brenda

    Beeff tongue = gross in my book. YUCK! But good points to apply cooking methods to business!
