¡Lengua de Cerdo!

This is a fresh pig’s tongue as might be available from a specialty butcher. Not very appetizing, is it? What if I told you it was most delicious, and that I created a recipe to cook it?

Pork Tongue prepared in a pressure cooker

3 fresh pork tongues, cleaned
3 cloves garlic
2 bay leaves
1/2 medium onion, sliced thickly
3 peppercorns
Salt to taste

Place tongues in pressure cooker, any kind, and add 1 cup water or broth and all other ingredients. Put on lid and bring to a boil. Cook at medium-high for 20 minutes. Cool off under cold running water in the sink and remove. The rough skin on the outside will peel off.

Eat as is, or shred for tacos. Pork tongue has a light flavor than beef tongue, which is on the gamey side. Once it’s shredded you can feed it to guests and they won’t know what they’re eating. Imagine the surprise when you tell them!
