+ 1 beef tongue (about 3-1/2 lb.)
+ 2 large onions, divided
+ 4 cloves garlic, divided
+ 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
+ 1-1/2 lb. plum tomatoes, chopped

What to do:
1. Chop 1 onion and mince 2 cloves garlic; set aside. Cut remaining onion into quarters. Peel remaining 2 cloves garlic; leave whole.

2. Remove tongue; cool slightly. Remove and discard skin from tongue; cut away roots. Carve tongue diagonally across the grain into 1/2-in. slices. Set aside.
3. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add chopped onion; cook and stir 5-7 min. or until tender. Add minced garlic; cook and stir 1 min. Stir in tomatoes, poblano peppers, salt, thyme, oregano and black pepper; cook and stir 8-10 min. or until tomatoes are softened. Add sliced tongue; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10-15 min. to blend flavors.

* Cook's Tip: To roast peppers, arrange on large sheet of aluminum foil. Place on broiler rack so surface of peppers is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 12 to 15 minutes or until skin is blackened, turning frequently. Fold aluminum foil over peppers to enclose. Let stand 5 minutes to loosen skins.
