Beef Tongue Recipe | Pastel de Lengua (Filipino Food)



What's up guys? Today we're going to show you how to make pastel de lengua Pastel de lengua is a Filipino dish that's made up of beef tongue, mushrooms and corn, and is stewed in a creamy garlic butter sauce

To make our version of pastel de lengua, you'll first want to get a hold of beef tongue Ours was frozen so we thawed it out in the fridge for two days beforehand Once it's ready to go, take it out of the packaging, and give it a good rinse Afterwards place your beef tongue into a pressure cooker Today we're using an instant pot to pressure cook it but the process is pretty much the same if you're using a normal pressure cooker

Now go ahead and add in one small sliced onion, and five bay leaves Then pour in just enough water to cover your beef tongue Next secure the lid to your instant pot, and make sure that the steam release is set to the sealing setting And then set the instant pot to the meat stew setting at high pressure for forty-five minutes If you're using a normal pressure cooker you'll want to pressure cook your beef tongue for about twenty to thirty minutes

When it's done pressure cooking allow it to naturally release all the pressure Once the float valve unlocks it's safe to open Using a pair of tongs take out your beef tongue and place it into a bowl, and allow it to cool for at least thirty minutes When it's cool enough to handle, it's time to start prepping and cutting it up First what you want to do is peel off the outer skin of the beef tongue

If you need to, you can use a knife to get under the skin And also don't forget to peel under the tongue Next cut off the extra stuff at the base of the tongue, as well as these furry things on the side If you know what these parts are, let us know in the comments below At this point you can start slicing up your beef tongue

Starting at the base of the tongue cut slices that are about a quarter of an inch thick Next trim off the second layer of skin around the slices Some people like to keep these back ridges of the tongue but we like to cut it out, but it's really up to you Then continue slicing up the rest of your beef tongue in the same way We like to cut our beef tongue like this just so it's a little more presentable

Every beef tongue has a unique shape to it so you'll have to adapt your cutting to how it's shaped When you get to the very tip of the tongue just shave off the remaining taste buds If you got this far pat yourself on the back because this was the hardest part! Now it's time to start cooking! Set a pot over medium low heat And then drop in three tablespoons of butter Using a mixing spoon move the butter around until it fully melts

Next add in six to nine cloves of minced garlic And saute the garlic in the butter Afterwards place your beef tongue into the pot and coat it with the garlic butter saute Then pour in one and two thirds cups of water Cover your pot and leave it cracked open a little if your lid doesn't have a venting hole

Bring your beef tongue to a boil And once at a boil bring it down to a simmer, and simmer everything for forty to sixty minutes When it's done take the lid off your pot and fork the beef tongue to see if its tenderness is to your liking If it's not just continue simmering it until it is Next sprinkle in one teaspoon of salt

And stir it in At this point if you find the liquid is running a little low you can add in a little bit more water We ended up adding another 1 cup Cover your pot again with the lid slightly cracked open, and continue simmering everything for another 15 minutes Afterwards add-in 1-7

6 fluid ounce can of table cream And mix it in Followed by one and a half cups of sliced mushrooms And one and a half cups of whole corn kernels Stir everything together

At this point you're trying to thicken the sauce so continue simmering it for another 15 minutes uncovered Next go ahead and taste your sauce to check if it needs more salt Ours was perfect so we didn't end up adding any Our sauce wasn't quite at our preferred thickness at this point so we actually ended up simmering it for another 15 minutes When your pastel de lengua looks like this, you're all done! We know that beef tongue can be a little intimidating for most, but if you're down with it, we promise this dish does not disappoint! It's talagang tasty!
