Beer-braised Tongue Taco

Empellón Taqueria

Time Out New York
The soft, shredded meat—slow-cooked with Negra Modelo, bacon and chorizo—is deposited on two house-made flour rounds, and sauced with the reduced braising liquid and an incendiary chile de árbol salsa. Raw onion, roasted fingerling potatoes and salty queso fresco complete the dish.
Time Out New York
... [Chef-owner] slowly cooks brined pork tongue with bacon, chorizo, onions and a slug of Negra Modelo. The meat is coated with the reduced braising liquid and drizzled with a fiery chile de arbol salsa, while slivers of raw onion, roasted fingerling potatoes and queso fresco balance the protein's rich, spicy flavors.
