Method

  • 01
  • Coarsely chop one onion, combine in a saucepan with tongue, celery and carrot, cover with cold water and bring to the simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until cooked through (2 hours). Remove tongue (discard liquid and vegetables) and set aside, then, when cool enough to handle, peel and thinly slice.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add onion and stir occasionally until tender (6-8 minutes), then add stock, potato, chilli and tongue. Transfer ingredients to a 20cm x 25cm 4-litre baking dish, cover with foil and bake until potato is tender (50 minutes-1 hour). Stir through peas and parsley, season to taste and serve hot with bread.
