Step 1 : Beef tongue

In a casserole dish, sweat the coarsely chopped onions and carrots.

(Do not hesitate to add a little water if necessary to let the tongue completely immersed).

Remove the beef tongue from its cooking juices then add 2 tablespoons of veal stock and let reduce by half.
Add the tomato paste, sugar and 4 drops of tabasco
Mix the sauce and pass it through a strainer.
Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.

Step 2: Knepfles:

In a mixing bowl, pour the flour first, the eggs on top and then the cottage cheese.

And mix until you get a smooth paste.
In a pot of boiling water using two spoons, drop small portions and repeat until the end of the dough.
Cooking is good once everything has risen to the surface.
Drain and let cool.
In a frying pan, melt the butter and brown the knepfles until the desired color is obtained.


Step 3: The mayonnaise :


In a large bowl, put the egg yolk and mustard, mix.
Then while continuing to mix, pour in the oil in a light trickle.
