Octopus: Is this supposed to happen?

sbp | Dec 16, 2012 04:54 PM

I've braised octopus a couple of times, and want to make sure what I'm doing is supposed to happen. After braising till tender, when I take it out, the skin comes off, along with all the suckers, leaving just smooth tentacles. Is this right?

Also, 5 pounds of Octopus is yielding about 1 pound of cooked, tender meat. Am I cooking TOO long?
