About this cut
Pickled or slowly braised, beef tongue is a classic eastern European delicacy. We recommend harnessing your inner Jewish deli, slow cooking then thin-slicing this cut for a sandwich right out of the Lower East Side. Our Raw Tongues are ready for braising (similar to beef cheeks or Second Cut Brisket) or making your own pickled tongue. Our Pickled Tongues are pickled with classic corned beef spicing, but must still be braised or steamed before eating.
Raw Beef Tongue is kosher for Passover. Pickled Beef Tongue is not kosher for Passover.
Basic Cooking Technique:
- For braised tongue, cover with broth and aromatics and braise at low temperature until tender.
- To prepare Pickled Tongue: Remove from package. Braise at 300F, tightly covered and partially-submerged in liquid, 2-4 hours or until tender. Peel, slice and serve.

It is the second time I ordered beef tongue and both times they were excellent. The best I’ve eaten.
Cooking didn't take too long. Delicious !
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
