Instant Pot Beef Tongue Ingredients:


  • Peel and slice onion and carrots. Clean and slice celery. Load into the instant pot and sauté with a little butter.
  • Cancel sauté.
  • Season the beef tongue and sit over the carrot, celery, and onion. Chop the last of the butter and lay it over the beef tongue.
  • Add approximately 2 litres of beef stock so that the beef tongue is completely submerged.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot and set the valve to sealing.
  • Pressure cook for 90 minutes on meat/stew.
  • When it beeps manually release pressure and place the beef tongue on a chopping board. Allow to cool. When cool enough to handle remove the skin.
  • Then let it sit for 5 minutes before slicing into the thickness of a slice of steak.
  • Serve.


If you would like a beef tongue gravy – place into a blender the drained celery, carrots and onion and add 200ml of the liquid from the instant pot. Blend until a smooth gravy.
Instant pot beef tongue from frozen – We tried two beef tongues, one frozen one thawed. The frozen version tasted awful and was not in the league of the thawed. I recommend you always cook your beef tongue from thawed.
