Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rub 1 tablespoon salt onto beef tongue; place on a plate. Let sit until flavors combine, about 5 minutes.

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Dip beef tongue into boiling water with a slotted spoon for 30 seconds. Remove, draining excess water; transfer to a plate.

  • Heat sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in onions; cook and stir until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add beef tongue and more sesame oil if needed; cook and stir until tongue is browned, about 3 minutes.

  • Stir sake, dashi powder, salt, and pepper into the skillet; simmer until flavors combine, 2 to 3 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Pork tongue can be substituted for the beef tongue if desired.


Concentrated chicken stock can be substituted for the dashi powder.
