9唔搭8既組合? 出奇好味大蔥炒和牛舌 Spontaneous Stir-fried Wagyu Tongue with Leeks



Our intention was to make Shanghaiese Stir-fried Beef with Leeks but we could only find pricey wagyu beef in the supermarket. However, we also found a pack of discounted wagyu tongue so we thought it might be a good idea to use that in the dish

Normally when we buy beef tongue we use it for Yakiniku and even online the majority of the beef tongue recipes we can find in Hong Kong are in Japanese style. What will it be like if we cook the beef tongue in Shanghaiese style?

大蔥炒和牛舌 Stir-fried Wagyu Tongue with Leeks




Result: Stir frying beef tongue in Shanghaiese is not a problem at all and we think it’s a good recipe to share with you all
The flavour is not like Shanghaiese stir fried beef because of the extra umami brought by the fatty tongue. It went very well with the soy sauce and leeks

The way we made the dish was not in authentic Shanghaiese way, together with the shifting of main ingredient to beef tongue, we would say it’s a very spontaneous try. However, as long as the result is good, why not give it a try?


The success of the dish shall be attributed to this pack of beef tongue. Though the portion was not large, it’s actually a very good deal given its quality


We first marinate the tongue with oyster sauce, light soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch and shaoxine wine


Chop the leeks and get ready minced garlic and some scallion stems


Sear both sides of the beef tongue


Sear on medium high heat until the rims are slightly charred


Due to the marinate, it’s fairly easy to get the wok burnt


For the wok we used, we just wet a piece of kitchen towel and it’s very easy to clean up the stains

而且佢係陶瓷塗層,同一般市面黑媽媽個d PTFE化學塗層有分別,使用上可以更放心

The wok has revived!
In addition, it’s a ceramic coating wok which is different from the black PTFE coating wok commonly available in the market. We can rest assure using the wok. If you are interest in learning more, go check it out on our online shop


Sautee the minced garlic and scallion stems


Add leeks until you smell the aroma


Add a bit of shaoxine wine


Add the sauce made up of light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, shaoxine wine and sugar
Test the test and adjust


Add the beef tongues and cook on medium heat for awhile. Add cornstarch solution to thicken the sauce. Done!


The wok we are using is called Lowenthal Avocado Ceramic Non-stick Wok 28cm. Its best benefits are its superior non-stickiness and its natural composition of ceramic coating which brings you away from the health-risky PTFE coated woks most commonly seen in the market. The wok is now available on our online shop. With a few simple clicks, you can start to enjoy the carefree journey of ceramic non-stick wok cooking!
