Place tongue on a heatproof plate, cover, and keep warm in a 200° oven.
Remove and discard chile from cooking liquid.
Lift potatoes to a warm platter and keep warm.
Skim and discard fat from cooking liquid, then blend in cornstarch mixture.
Increase cooker heat setting to high; cover and cook, stirring 2 or 3 times, until sauce is thickened (12 to 15 more minutes).
Season to taste with salt.
To serve, slice tongue; arrange on platter with potatoes.
Spoon some of the sauce over tongue and potatoes; serve remaining sauce in a bowl or pitcher to add to taste.
