Very yummy! Thanks for posting. I used fresh mushroom and baked potatoes. This is an easy recipe but it took me 3 hours to make it. Indeed, cooking pork tongues takes a lot more time than suggested here.

This is very good! There was a time many years ago when pork tongue was the only meat we could afford. I used it mainly in curries and stews, and always found it good. I followed this recipe in most respects, though I did cut the sugar to almost half, and used a yellow bell pepper. It did take quite a lot more time to cook than is suggested here. Thank you for sharing a very good recipe with us.

I remember being served this as a child not knowing just exactly what it was. Thanks to intense therapy sessions the flasbacks aren't as vivid these days.
