To prepare a delicious aspic from beef tongue, you should use a proven step-by-step recipe. Standardly the process consists of the following stages:
Rinse it thoroughly and place in a saucepan. When it boils, boil it over high heat for 5-10 minutes and drain the first broth. Rinse the tongue again and place in a saucepan.Fill it with hot water, salt and put on medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove the foam (noise) and add 1 onion, 1 carrot and celery to it. Reduce the flame so that the water in the pan barely gurgles, and leave the meat to simmer on the stove for 2 hours and 45 minutes. Then add spices to the broth and boil it for another 20-30 minutes. It is important to perform all the actions, because such a recipe for cooking the tongue will eliminate the unpleasant smell and make the broth as transparent as possible.
Preparation of vegetables and eggs.
In parallel, boil one carrot and 6 eggs (hard boiled). The remaining 2 eggs are broken and gently separate the yolks from the proteins. It is important that the latter are clean and without blotches of yellow particles. If you still damaged the yolk, then pour the resulting mass and try again with a new egg.
When the tongue is ready, immediately pour it over with cold water.
Then begin to remove the skin, doing it with a thick edge of the meat. As the recipe says: if the skin does not want to fall behind, then the tongue is not ready yet and it is worth returning it to the broth and boil another 30-40 minutes. If the peel is successfully eliminated, then also return the meat to the broth. Bring the contents of the pan to a boil and turn off the burner.Now let the tongue cool down, then cut it into neat slices in the shape of circles.
Meanwhile, extract the vegetables from the broth and type 3-4 tablespoons of liquid in a plate.
Pour gelatin into it and leave for 15 - 20 minutes for swelling. Next, remove the vegetables from the pans. After the granules swell, combine the contents of the plate with the rest of the broth and again put the pan on the stove. As it is heated, mix the gelatin thoroughly until it is completely dissolved. Then remove the pan from the stove and allow the liquid to cool to room temperature.
Now it's time to make the broth clear.
As the recipe says, for this we take the separated proteins and beat them into a lush foam. If you do not have a mixer, the result can be obtained manually. To do this, just rub the bowl for beating with a piece of lemon, lightly salt the proteins and pre-cool them. Add the resulting foam in cold broth and put the saucepan on the fire. Folding protein eliminates the smallest particles, making the liquid clear. Boil the broth with the squirrels on a small fire for 15 minutes and strain through a fine sieve.
Preparing the decor.
Slice the boiled eggs in neat circles. Also worth doing with olives. It is better to cut carrots figuratively, using special cutting forms for cookies. Parsley can not chop, and divided into neat twigs.
Take the form and pour a little broth into it (on the bottom).
Then leave the contents in the fridge for 5 - 10 minutes. Now lay out the sprigs of parsley, olives, eggs and carrots. Behind them in the form should be placed chopped tongue, and after it - the remnants of eggs with carrots and olives. Now pour the contents of the cooled broth and send it to the refrigerator for 10-12 hours.
If you have completed all the actions on which the recipe is emphasized, the aspic from the language will turn out beautiful and incredibly tasty. To remove the finished dish from the form, take a suitable plate and cover it with a form.
Then gently turn over the containers so that the plate is at the bottom. Now we remove the form, and the filler remains on the plate. It is served as a whole, putting a small bowl with horseradish and mustard. They will give spice to the food.
