My second favorite ox tongue dish is Lengua in white mushroom sauce. This is a rich and creamy way to cook lengua. It is also known as lengua in white sauce. The color pertains to the sauce, not the type of mushroom used. This is best eaten with garlic bread and even with rice.
I like how this dish taste; the flavors from the butter, whipping cream, and mushrooms went well together. I also loved how tender the lengua was. To me, this is the most important factor that can determine the success of any lengua dish.
If you have not seen my post regarding New Year of 2017, we had Lengua in White Mushroom Sauce along with other yummy dishes for New Year’s Eve dinner. It was partaken by everyone in the family. As I mentioned in the post, the meal was superb, and it even got better when all the members of the family are around to share it with.
You might still be wondering what my favorite ox tongue dish is; it is lengua estofado.
