Method

 
Place the ox tongue in a large saucepan or pressure cooker. Add the peppercorns, onion, bay leaves and parsley and simmer for about 2 hours or until the tongue is tender (for 1 hour if cooking the tongue in the pressure cooker). Remove the tongue from the cooking liquid and remove the skin while still hot. Slice the tongue. In the meantime prepare the sauce: Boil the carrot strips in the chicken stock cube dissolved in the boiling water until tender but still crisp. Add the remaining ingredients for the sauce and simmer until the sauce has thickened. Stir occasionally. Season with salt and pepper and thicken with cornflour mixed to a paste with a little water if necessary. Serve with the tongue or place the tongue slices in the sauce and heat through.
