Product description

Our ethos has always been to celebrate the whole carcass, and nose-to-tail cooking and eating is a fundamental part of that. Over the years we have refined recipes that celebrate the versatility and delights of the fifth quarter, and Beef* Ox Tongue is a perfect example.

Ox tongue is a popular cut amongst fans of traditional fare, and a staple bestseller amongst our restaurant community. Upon slow cooking, you’re rewarded with a melt in the mouth texture and a flavour more akin to a steak than offal. Ox tongue is a most delicious cold cut, perfect for sandwiches and meat platters; simply poach, peel, cool and slice.

Chef Val Warner inspires:
"Ox tongue is an amazingly versatile part of the beast and very reasonably priced too. Out of fashion in the supermarkets, but highly prized by our community of restaurant chefs, I cannot convey quite how tasty it is.

Simply boil with a leek and a little celery plus a few black peppercorns, and then peel (best done warm). Once cooled, slice and serve with pickles and fresh bread for a deliciously simple sharing platter.

Add gelatine, capers, fresh parsley and the chopped tongue meat to the stock and season. This makes a delicious and sliceable equivalent to brawn. Wonderful eaten with sauce gribiche.

For a morning treat, chop the tongue and fry hard, add in grated potatoes and a fried egg on top - now that’s a breakfast hash right there.

Or cut into long strips and cook in a hot and spicy broth overflowing with chillies; this will really leave a lingering taste in your mouth, in all the right ways."
