Use Dishwasher for cooking beef!

Poaching beef in your dishwasher is a surefire way to shock your dinner guests, prepare a healthy

meal, and do the dishes - all at the same time!

Here's how to use your dishwasher to poach your beef tongue:


One Standard Dishwasher (any make should do just fine)

One Roast Bag (Big enough for the beef tongue)

One Beef Tongue

Chicken Stock

Three Carrots

One Onion

Three Celery Stalks

One Bay Leaf

Nine Peppercorns

Salt & Pepper to taste


Season the beef tongue with salt and pepper and let it stand in the refrigerator overnight.

Combine all other ingredients.

Put tongue and other ingredients into the roast bag.

Don't forget to add the chicken stock too.

Set dishwasher for 1 washing cycle. (It should "wash" run for about 1.5 - 2 hours).

The beef tongue should now be fork tender.

Remove the meat from the dishwasher and remove the skin when it is cool enough to handle.

Slice the tongue and serve hot or cold. Top it with Salsa Verde.

Salsa Verde Ingredients:

¼ Cup red Onion, diced fine

¼ Cup Parsley, chopped

¼ Cup Oil (or to taste)

¼ Cup cornichon, diced fine

2 Tablespoons chopped capers

1 Lemon Zest

2 Finely Diced, hard-boiled egg whites

Dice the egg whites, onion and conichon to same size.

Combine all other ingredients and add seasoning according to taste.

Special Note:

Sounds crazy, but it works and I don't know why anyone

would do this BUT I tried it...

Result = Tasty & Delicious!

You can try this with beef tenderloin as well! Poaching may be an unusual method for

preparing your beef tenderloin, but you will be surprised by the results

(especially if done in your dishwasher!)

WARNING: DO NOT over-cook the beef. It will become tough.

PS: This is not my own recipe. It is from Chef Eddie at Absinthe, a restaurant near Symphony Hall.

It can be served hot or cold. He also likes to serve it topped with Salsa Verde. I have modified it

to be poached in your dishwasher.
