Pork Lengua in White Sauce

Lengua in White Sauce is a popular dish usually served during special occasions. It’s usually made of ox tongue but for today’s recipe we are using pork tongue. It’s way cheaper than ox tongue and takes less time to tenderize.

When it comes to lengua dishes, my nanay’s favorite is Lengua Estofado. It’s the dish I grew up eating whenever there’s a special occasion at home. Kaya naman the first time I was able to try Pork Lengua in White Sauce, I told myself that I will cook it for my family. Kasi naman ang sarap.

And when I started cooking it, I found out hindi naman pala sya ganon kahirap lutuin. I was intimidated at first. I thought mahirap because you only see it whenever there’s a celebration — a bit tedious, maybe, specially if you’re going to cook a lot. But if it’s less than a kilo — so easy. You can even shorten the time you tenderize it by using a pressure cooker instead of just boiling it.

Do you cook Pork lengua in White Sauce at home? Have you tried it using mushroom soup or putting corn on it? Will try this next time.
