Carne Asada Recipe with lengua (Beef Tongue)

My Easy Carne Asada Recipe

A friend of mine introduced me to Lengua, which is Beef Tongue.  He brought it in to work one day all prepared and ready to eat.   I’m sure you can imagine my hesitation when he offered me a taco full of the meat.  Long story short, to my surprise it was delicious and I use it now for a Carne Asada recipe. This by far makes some of the most delicious tacos I have ever eaten! A slow roast in a Crockpot starts first thing in the morning before I go to work and it’s ready to shred, season and sear when I come home. Throw in all my favorite fresh vegies and some white corn tortillas and we’re good to go!

About this Carne Asada recipe

This recipe is very simple and practically all the work is done for you.  If you’ve sought out this recipe I’m sure you’ve had beef tongue before and you’re probably not looking to expand your horizons just to try it for the first time now are you.  So you are well aware that you are going to have to remove the skin once the tongue is fully cooked.  You’ll need a slow cooker(unless you prefer the oven), a sharp knife, a Beef Tongue, Canola oil, fresh garlic, your favorite onions and/or scallions, cilantro,1 lime, salt and pepper, and last but not least your favorite tortilla’s.

Introducing my Carne Asada recipe

1  Beef Tongue
1 handful chopped Cilantro
1 Lime (squeezed)
½ Diced Bell Pepper
1/2 Diced White or Yellow onion (your preference)
1 tsp. Minced garlic
2 Green onion stalks diced into Scallions
Salt and pepper to taste

Carne asada recipe instructions

10 hours of cook time in a slow cooker on low heat. Then separate the meat from the tongue skin and slice the meat into your desired portions.  Once that is completed, sear the beef in a skillet with Canola oil, garlic, onions, and cilantro. One whole lime is added during the sear which is really important because this is what really gives the Lengua its additional flavor.  This Carne Asada recipe is going to require salt and pepper to your personal taste, and in my experience a lot of salt.

Steamed Smothered Salmon

Why should you learn How to cook Salmon?

If you are going to cook fish you better know How to cook Salmon. That’s what I decided anyway.  It seems to be a real crowd pleaser and anyone that likes fish seems to love a good Salmon. So why not learn a great way that’s easy to do and not only keeps the fish real moist and succulent, but also has an everlasting burst of flavor from the first bite to the last.

Now, How to Cook Salmon

My preparation for this dish is actually ironic.  A few simple things that are done in this recipe are very commonly used for other recipes similar to this one but I have since found that one of the main things I feel really sets this fish off is considered a huge faux pas amongst many other chefs.  What others consider a No-No I throw down a Hell Yeah when I cover my Salmon with CHEESE!  That’s right I said it…Mozzarella Cheese tops off this Salmon recipe after it’s steamed in a puddle of Onions, Bell Peppers, white wine and butter!  Then I add some fresh chopped Parsley, Bacon bits and then I broil it in the oven for 2 minutes to give it that blow torched burnt marshmallow look before I splash it with Balsamic Vinegar and cold sliced tomatoes.  Once that’s all done, it’s time to serve the best damn fish to my loving wife who can’t ever seem to get enough of me and my finger lickin’ cookin’!  Now if you feel like you can handle all that, then watch my do it yourself video below so you can learn How to cook Salmon yourself!

The Best Pancake Mix Recipe for Popeye Pancakes

Popeye Pancake Mix Recipe

The German Puff Pancake in my family has always been known as Popeye Pancakes.  I don’t know where that name originated from but it’s how I refer to them and what I’ll be calling them from here out. Popeye pancakes are very simple to make; just a few ingredients for this Pancake Mix Recipe in a blender, a hot pan and an oven and within 20 minutes you’ve got a voluptuous mountain range you can’t wait to sink your teeth into.  Thanks to the amount of eggs in this recipe as well as a few other key ingredients, I’ll be showing you how to make a very puffy and sweet melt in your mouth Popeye pancake.

Pancake Mix Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cube butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 banana
1 oz. Triple sec
1 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups flour
6 eggs
powdered sugar

Directions for The Pancake Mix Recipe

Everything I’ve listed except for the butter will go in a blender or mixing bowl and whipped up until it is evenly portioned.  The butter needs to go in a preheated oven set at 375 degrees f. in order for it to melt before adding the Pancake Mix Recipe.  Use a 11 by 8-ish pan so the batter has room to rise.  Once the butter has completely melted within a few minutes of putting it in the oven, remove the pan and poor all of the Pancake Mix Recipe batter dead center into the middle of the pan.  Place the pan back into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Once the pancake rises and turns a golden brown around the edges of the cake it is ready to be pulled from the oven and served.  Powdered sugar is often sprinkled over the top like French toast or funnel cakes, and often served with syrup.  In this recipe, you do not have to include the banana or the triple sec.  A traditional German Pancake Mix Recipe does not include those 2 ingredients.
