Right. Let me just start off by saying how delicious Pickled Ox Tongue actually is. It might be a bit gross if you have to handle the tongue, clean it, cook it and pull the skin off by yourself – I won’t lie. And given I’ve grown up on a farm type set-up, were my gran and mom frequently cooked tribe and tongue, this was supposed to be child’s play, right? I might have become a real city slicker, I tell you…
Despite this however, this recipe of Pickled Ox Tongue with Sweet Mustard Sauce is actually pretty decent and delicious. When it comes to cooking pickled ox tongue, which I thought would be a mission, it actually requires little effort.
I got this beautiful piece of meat from the team over at Biltong@za. They stock amazing deli produce at four locations, with the Centurion Factory Deli being the queen of the lot – and not to mention the biltong outlets you will find throughout Gauteng. They know meat, guys!
So, back to the recipe. I decided to serve my Pickled Ox Tongue with a mouthwatering sweet mustard sauce – a great accompaniment for cold meats, hams and it turns out to be an amazing dip for cocktail savoury bites and crisps. Believe me!
Now, this recipe for Pickled Ox Tongue is exactly the type of food my gran and mom would present on a special occasion, like Easter, accompanied by cold meats, chicken and salads. Be sure to visitBiltong@za Facebook page for monthly specials. You can also find a whole bunch of my recipes on their website. What will you be serving up this Easter?
