Tender Beef Tongue




Beef tongue is highly valued specialty of many world cuisines. In my house, beef tongue is very valued and loved, especially as very good material for an excellent soup.I am preparing cooked in different ways and this is one of them. All those who try it, they know it's a real treat that once they try it never forget it. I know that many frowned at the mention of the beef tongue, but if you ignore the look, the taste is fantastic. When well cooked, it is soft, juicy meat that melts in your mouth.

Which in short, if you love beef, it is likely that will also like boiled beef tongue.

Ingredients : 

• 1 beef tongue
• 3 medium onions
• 1 large parsley root
• 4 cloves of garlic
• 2 medium tomatoes
• a few sprigs of parsley
• 1 large carrot
• salt
• peppercorns
• 4-5 bay leaves
• 1 tablespoon of butter
• 1 teaspoon of mustard
• 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
• 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger
• a pinch of turmeric

Side dish:

• 1 kilo of potatoes
• 5 large carrots
• 3 cloves of garlic
• 3 tablespoons of olive oil
• salt and pepper to taste
• mozzarella or other cheese

Considering that beef tongue needs to be cooked, before any further gourmet treatment and therefore, this recipe starts with it. Tongue wash thoroughly and put to cook in hot water.

The first water after boiling throw away. So again pour in a boiling water and add vegetables and spices. Lightly cook it in a pressure cooker. You do not need too much water to add, it is enough to cover tongue and vegetables. The tongue is cooked for about an hour or until the skin starts separating from the meat. Then take it out, and while it is still hot peel off the skin. It is now ready for further processing. Cut the tongue into slices and gently fry in butter on both sides. While the tongue is frying mash the vegetables from the broth and put them into a bigger pot for cooking. Add a teaspoon of mustard, tablespoon of tomato paste, grated ginger and a pinch of turmeric. All boil for a few minutes and, if necessary, add the soup of tongue. In the sauce add the fried tongue and all together boil for a few minutes.

As a side dish, I suggest roast potatoes and carrots. Clean the vegetables and cut it into desired pieces. Spice by oil salt and pepper and add half a cup of soup in which you cooked tongue with finely chopped garlic. Place it in a baking dish with the baking paper and place in the oven at 200 degrees. Bake for about 40 minutes until potatoes are starting to brown and tender.

This dish serves hot, so you pick up the two slices of beef tongue and pour sauce over it. On the side, you put potatoes and carrots also you can put a few slices of cheese over the hot potatoes to slightly melt.
