Beef Tongue with Mustard Sauce


1 x Ox tongue, with trimmings and visible fat cut-off (weight or average weight thereof)?

2 x Beef stock cubes

1 x  onion, cut in half

2 tbsp black pepper (whole corns or cracked)

3 carrots, cut into chunks

2 bay leaves (fresh or dried)

1.5 L water (Should be enough to cover the ox tongue in the pot)


Step 1

Place the tongue in a large pot with onion, carrots, beef stock cubes, bay leaves and

black pepper.

Step 2

Cover with water and boil (simmer) on medium heat for 2-3 hours, or until the outer layer of skin

peels easily.

*Can I use my pressure cooker for this recipe?  It’s black and oval so the tongue will look good against the black and the veggies etc.

Step 3

Once the tongue is ready, peel off the outer layer of skin, slice and serve hot or cold.
