How to prepare and cook beef (ox) tongue / Cara memasak lidah sapi


Hello everybody....Merhaba from Türkiye.

For some people eating offal or other part of animal sounds gross. Or maybe some of you just don't know how to prepare or cook them.

Offal could be delicious as normal meat if we know how to cook it, for example cow's feet (or legs) or (beef) tongue. You can be hooked once you taste delicious meal using those animal part because it prepared correct and cook it clever way. 

Today İ am going to share a tip how to prepare and cook  beef tongue. Beef tongue is lean meat that can be very tasty. But when you didn't cook it properly it can be pretty chewy and almost rubbery.

Since it's quite lean as İ mentioned above, it'll took sometimes to cook to have butter-soft texture which we look for. Some said 30 minute per pound, some said an hour. 
Personally İ didn't really using timer or whatsoever, İ just cooked and check my beef (ox) tongue periodically and test it by insert a big fork in thickest part of tongue, when it easily slip off from the fork it' done.


When you pick your beef/ ox tongue up make sure it feels firm. Most tongues will be gray in color, and if they have darkish spots on them, don't freak out — they're perfectly normal. Once they're cooked and skinned, they'll be delicious meat.


So here is how İ prepare my beef tongue.
  • 1 beef tongue about 1,5 gr
  • 2-3 bay leaf
  • 1,5 tsp salt ( 1 tsp per kg) 
  • 1 bullion
How to:

Wash clean tongue. Remove excess fat from the base of tongue. İf you find any bone or gristle don't forget to remove it as well.



Put the tongue with other ingredients above in a pan and cover with enough water. Put on the lid and cook over medium high heat. As İ mentioned above İ didn't check how long İ cooked the tongue. The bigger tongue the longer time needed. Just check periodically after an hour or so per one big tongue (about 1 kg).

Using big fork, insert in thicker part of tongue, if it's tender and slip off easily, it's done. 


Discard the water and let it chill completely.
After cool enough to handle, gently make a slit over the tongue skin and start to peel off the tongue skin.







Now you have tongue ready to cook anything your prefer.
İ will cook Indonesian braised beef tongue after this.

Assalamu'alaykum... Merhaba dari Türki semuanya....

Pernah makan bistik Lidah nggak? Makanan khas resto yang pasti favorit ya.....
Pernah bikin sendiri juga di rumah?
"enggak?" ... Lho..
"riweh dan gak ngerti gimana mengolah lidah mentahnya"

Hmm... Ayo deh bikin bistik lidah atau masakan lainnya dari lidah sapi.. Karena hari ini saya mau sharing bagaimana mengolah lidah sapi mentah sebelum diolah menjadi masakan kesukaan lainnya.


Ternyata mudah lho. Lidah sapi ini termasuk jenis "lean" alias tak berlemak. Teksturnya yang berbeda dengan daging normal membutuhkan cara memasak yang benar, karena kalau salah pengolahannya... akan alot dan tidak enak dikonsumsi.

Sebelum diolah menjadi masakan lain lidah sapi harus melewati proses "brine" atau dimasak dengan garam agar lunak dan mudah dikelupas kulit lidahnya.

Yuk... kita mulai ya.

Yang diperlukan:
  • 1 buah lidah sapi punya saya kurleb 900 gr (atau bisa 2 buah dng todal berat kurleb 2 kg)
  • 2-3 bay leaf atau bisa pakai daun salam
  • 1 sdt garam (tambahi 1 sdt lagi jika lidahnya 2)
  • 1 kotak bubuk kaldu

1) Cuci bersih lidah sapi. Jika ada lemak bisa dibuang, atau jika ada tulang lunak di bagian pangkal lidah bisa dipotong dan dibuang. 
Masukkan ke dalam panci dengan bahan-bahan lainnya. Tambahkan air secukupnya hingga lidah terendam.

2) Masak dengan api sedang hingga empuk. Saya tidak hitung waktunya, mungkin sekitar 1 setengah jam. Cara mengecek apakah lidah sudah empuk atau belum yaitu menusukkan garpu besar di bagian paling tebal. Jika lidah merosot dengan mudah berarti sudah selesai.


3) Dinginkan. Lalu dengan menggunakan pisau sayat tipis lidah untuk mengupas kulitnya. Lalu kelupas kulit bagian luar yang kasar tersebut.
Lidah siap dimasak sesuai selera.

Naahh...ternyata mudah kan cara megolah lidah sapi..

Yuk Bikin bistik lidah..check resepnya disini ya.

Semoga bermanfaat 😊
