Tender, moist beef tongue only takes minutes to prep thanks to a pressure cooker. Learn how to cook beef tongue the easy way.
Add the beef tongue to the pressure cooker, along with the salt, pepper, bay leaf, peeled onion and carrots. Then add enough water to over it by 1 inch, about 4 qts.
Cover the Instant Pot with a lid and turn the steam valve to "sealing". Turn the pressure cooker to "Manual" and "High" pressure for 90 minutes. Once the time expires, allow the Instant Pot to naturally depressurize for about 20-30 minutes, then open the lid.
Remove the tongue out of the cooking liquid and run it under cold water to cool it down slightly. Then peel off the skin, cut into slices and serve.
If you do not have an Instant Pot, you can make this recipe by adding all ingredients to a large stockpot instead. Keep it at a slow simmer for about 2.5 hours with the lid vented open slightly.
Pierce the tongue with a thin knife, if the knife goes in easy, remove the tongue, run it under cold water for a minute, then peel and serve.
If the tongue is not easily pierced with a knife yet, continue cooking until it is easily pierced with a fork or a thin knife. Keep adding more water to the pot as needed to keep the tongue submerged at all times.
