Ox Tongue

€8.99 each
The tongue is also a muscle and when cooked properly the meat produces the most amazing melting tenderness. At FX Buckley's we cure all the tongues with our homemade recipe.

Put it in a saucepan, cover with cold water, add some peppers (whole, not ground!), bay leaf, a piece of carrot, a piece of a celery root and boil it for at least 2 hours at minimal to average heat. (You can easily understand when the tongue is ready - knife easily goes into it. When the tongue is ready, IMMEDIATELY put it into cold water and peel. This is very easy when water is cold.

Served the tongue thinly sliced with mash potato and cabbage, covered in fresh parsley sauce. This rich cut of beef is best boiled.
