There's a nice recipe for beef tongue in chipotle chile sauce in The
Complete Meat Cookbook. (I just made this last night.) The recipe
is entirely paleo except for beer added to the stock, which is optional.

garlic, onion, fresh mild chilis, chipotle in adobo, tomato, and cumin.
(The chipotle/onion/garlic flavor is one of the best tasting sauce bases
in the world.) I make it with some or no tomatoe and it is incredible.
The basics are finely ground onion (processed in the food processor or
grated), garlic and chipotle, with some salt and toasted ground cumin
seed and coriander seed. Add fresh chopped cilantro at the end.
