    Braised tongue is one of my favorite dishes that I often make at home. EASY way to get the skin out, boil it with the tongue for about 20 mins on a pressure cooker. Than the skin will easily peel away. Then you can put it on a tomato sauce for another 20-40 mins depending on consistency. Lingua estufada here in Portugal

    A tongue on page 69 is mainly used in mastercation, it’s a very important muscle and you must remove the membranes before use. How about we share the tongue. It requires twenty-five minutes of preparation to get full flavour out of the tongue.

  • Chris Evans
    Chris Evans4 个月 前

    The tongue needs to be picked for a week in brine, then cooked , then skinned once cooked. Skinning after cooking is easier and gives a better presentation with no loss of the meat.

    Might be a little late, but i only watched the video today.... About the mirepoix thing, the way i learned in cooking school was that there are three types of mirepoix: the classic which is onion, carrot and celery; the white mirepoix which substitute the carrot for leek; and the fat mirepoix or matignon which is the classic one with the addition of bacon. So in the end, both Ben and James were right i guess

I am a little biased since the restuarant I work at is featured (Tanroagan). But since there is limiited resuarants on the Isle of Man, when we eat out we eat at the other featured and they are amazing.

    Video idea: who knows me best-ish. Someone for example Barry is the first person, he picks out the ingredients and makes a dish. However long he takes is the time the others get, they are all presented with Barry's ingredients + a few extra. They all get the allocated time to make what they think Barry will have made with the ingredients. At the end they all see all of the dishes, whoever is closest to what Barry made (taste, appearance etc) wins. It could be a 5 part series with each one of them being the first on an episode.
