Pig tongue shrinks when cooked, therefore insert a chopstick to prevent it from shrinking.  Rinse pig tongue well, skewer with a chopstick then blanch in boiling water and remove to rinse well.  A layer of white membrane will appear at the end of pig tongue after blanching and has to be removed thoroughly before stewing.  Scrape and discard the white membrane and rinse well.  Stew the pig tongue  in stewing broth over low heat for 30 minutes.  Remove from heat and soak until the liquid begins to cool, then remove and slice.
