TT National | Grilled Coca-Cola Braised Beef Tongue
We test and taste every recipe we publish. While we collaborate with a lot of talented chefs, we adapt and tinker with everything in our test kitchen. (It smells really good in here). Our goal is to make sure every recipe works as well in your home kitchen as it does in ours. So go on, get cooking with confidence.
We asked four pioneering Korean-American chefs to collaborate on one recipe. The result: Korean Pancakes with Coca-Cola-Braised Tongue, Pickled Jalapeños & Scallion Salad in a Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette.
Below is the first component, started by Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food and developed further by Hooni Kim of Danji. See the next step here.
