In my recipes and magazines from the 1950s, some popular meats, thrifty at the time, include cube steak, beef tongue, beef hearts and chicken livers. I've had cube steak but never the others. With a possible impending meat shortage due to a potential "budget sequester" meat eaters may want to consider developing a taste for the less expensive cuts.
How about you? Have you eaten any of them and if so, what did you think?
