Cabeza at a tacqueria questions

kare_raisu | Oct 20, 200602:58 AM     2

This is one of my favorite fillings for tacos but I wanted to ask about the cooking method.

Is it more common for Cabeza to be stewed to tenderness rather than steam (al vapor)? [possible regional differences, just a question of availability of big enough steamer?]

Do they simmer/steam the entire head or just the cheek portions?

Is any seasoning other than salt ever applied or is it just about the pure meat flavor?

Have you ever had a 'bad' cabeza taco? I've only had this happen to me once --it was kinda bloody and not tender.
