lengua de sarsa

i went to the wet market today. i wanted to buy pork belly since i'm craving for kimchi chigae. however, since today is All Soul's Day...a very big holiday here in the Philippines in commemoration of our families, relatives and friends who have passed away. it's a time for gathering of families to visit the graves of our loved ones. naturally, where there is gathering, there is always lots of food...somehow, most of the meat were sold out already...darn it! i got this pig's tongue instead and envisioned something to do with it...

Slice the pig's tongue into bite-size pieces. Saute onions and garlic in canola oil. Stir fry the pig's tongue. Add 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the liver spread. Blend well. Add 1 cup of sarsa (i used Mang Tomas, however, you can still make this dish without it). Add a dash of sugar. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Cook until the meat becomes tender. Garnish with tarragon leaves. yummy! my dad super loves it! even the sauce alone would just be enough...really a MUST TRY recipe..*wink*
