  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add beef tongue; cook until slightly softened, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Peel off skin.
  2. Mix smoked ham, olives, garlic, adobo, oregano, and salt together in a small bowl.
  3. Make slits in the tongue using a sharp knife; fill slits with ham mixture.
  4. Heat oil in the same pot over medium heat. Add tongue; cook, turning often, until browned on all sides, about 20 minutes. Remove from the pot and cut into smaller pieces. Pour tomato sauce into the pot; stir to scrape up browned bits from the bottom. Stir tongue pieces into the sauce and simmer until flavors combine, about 10 minutes.

I made this recipe with left over beef tongue which worked just fine. I also didn't have the adobo seasoning, but it was fine without. Very good and tasty, I would recommend this to anyone.
