Ox tongue tastes better hot, but needs a sauce or relish. My preference is for a sharp vegetable accompaniment such as beetroot or celeriac, and maybe soft mashed potato, rather than the traditional Madeira sauce.

When choosing beetroot look for small, even-sized specimens. Cutting the vegetable will allow the colour to bleed away as it cooks.
