Delicious!

Translated from Japanese: I like beef tongue that feels like it's chewy, so I grill it. Delicious! It's a simple supper because you don't have to cut it yourself.

Austrian Grass-Fed Beef Tongue Cubes (300g)

Horizon Farms
BF181W

Description

A 300g (10.6 oz) pack of cubed beef tongue. These are the trimmings and offcuts that we produce when slicing the beef tongue. Simmental beef is a common breed in western Europe and known for its portion sizes, distinctive beefy flavor, and tenderness. 

The cattle are bred free-range in small groups on the open pastures of the pristine hills and alps of Austria by family farm alliances. The feed is in-house grown and the beef is AMA certified (well known in Austria) meaning all produce has been certified of Austrian origin.

The cattle are grass-fed their entire lives and if lush green grass is not available due to the season or weather - especially during the winter - the cattle are fed a mix of all-natural grains and vitamins - all free of pesticides, GMO, and nasties. By regulations, all cattle in Europe are free of growth hormones and free subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. Simmental cattle are genetically a very large animal and therefore the cuts are relatively big in size compared to our American or Australian cattle. See more about the breed below.

Simmental Austria

Simmental beef is bred for milk and beef in Austria. More than half of Austria's utilized agricultural area is grassland making milk production and cattle farming a major industry. The European Union, especially Austria put rigorous measures and laws in place that put a strong emphasis on animal welfare. On average farmers in Austria only own about 25 cows (!!) per farm - thus being referred to as micro family farms. So small most farmers can distinguish their cattle by their faces. Austrian Simmental beef is grazed on pristine alpine pastures with fresh mountain air - ethically raised with love, free of stress creating quality beef that is appreciated worldwide. The feed and the pastures are locally produced and grown, free of pesticides and GMOs. Simmental cattle are not treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.

Translated from Japanese: I was looking for sugar-free, additive-free bacon and found it here. It's delicious, with a nice salty taste. It's a little inconvenient for a small family because it comes in one bag of 300 grams, but a 100 gram unit would be helpful.

Stocking up on them

Translated from Japanese: The flavor and the texture, all in all, the best bacon. They’re delicious when they’re crunchy. if you cook them on one side until the oil seeps through and turn them around, you can use the same frypan to quickly make eggs at the same time, which I really like. Without getting burned, the fat turned half transparent, which made it look like it had lots of collagen, which is a good thing!
I will stock up on them.

All-time best bacon!

Translated from Japanese: Smoked with garlic and salt and pepper, it was the best.
Usual bacon has sugar in it and there’s no information on the meat’s origin, so I had the feeling of not really liking it, but this bacon saved me.
Neither sugar nor other additives were used, the bacon is made out of real meat. I’m really thankful for this!
This is with no doubt the best bacon I’ve ever eaten. Because frozen products are convenient, I want to always have some in stock!
Of course, I will order again.

Translated from Japanese: When you cook it, it becomes really crispy and with pepper on top it was really delicious. Because there was no sugar used, I think the flavor was really clear. I’m also glad about the simple packaging. I was looking for meat where the animals’ environment was taken into consideration and that’s how I ended up here. I haven’t had anything else but this bacon yet, but I’m looking forward to the other products.

Perfect spiciness!

Translated from Japanese: I cooked them in a frypan and then put them into a lentil stew. Without adding salt to the lentils, I ate it together and the perfect degree of spiciness was amazing.
Because the skin is thick, it’s very elastic, so there might be people who can’t bite through it with their teeth (I took a big bite). But if you properly use a knife and fork, you can eat with no problems. It might be better to cook the sausages on low flame until the skin is slightly burned. I didn’t cook them the way you can see them in the pictures on the website.
I will order again!

Translated from Japanese: Perfect degree of spiciness. For me, the saltiness was a little too much.

The outside is crispy! The inside meaty!

Translated from Japanese: Because of corona, I can’t go out, so I think having a BBQ can be fun. Spicy sausages and beer, there’s no better combination. The outside is crispy, there’s a prickling sound when you bite into them and the inside is juicy. Delicious~! These are big, filling sausages that are perfectly meaty. I want to try country style sausages next!

Translated from Japanese: For those who love meat. The herbs and the Italian flavor are amazing, it made me think “This is awesome!” I might order them again.

They don’t go well with spaghetti sauces

Translated from Japanese: They're delicious, but the seasoning is lacking. It’s not the spiciness, but the Italian spices that are missing.

Finally a nice breakfast sausage in Japan

Coming from the west one tends to do without when it comes to certain traditional foods. This is the best breakfast sausage I have tasted in years. The bonus is that you can make a perfectly sized patty out of two sausages for the perfect egg and sausage sandwich.

I will be ordering again!

They’re easy to eat because they’re skinless! The herbal scent is amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re naturally without skin, but these are soft and easy to eat. It has just the right amount of salt and you can smell the herbs well. At times when you don’t want to eat more than two sausages, if you just cut open the package, you can conveniently separate them in their frozen state.
Without oil, I slowly cooked them with their own oils and eggs. It was extremely delicious!
I want to stock up on them in my freezer.
I need to buy a bigger freezer!!!

These sausages, that are carefully made, are amazing!

Translated from Japanese: They’re big and the meat very delicious. I think that safe and organic sausages at this price where you also know the origin of the ingredients are too cheap.
After boiling the whole bag, I cooked them and ate them with grain mustard. I was very satisfied with one pack, so I think it's okay to use about two.

Very meaty!

Translated from Japanese: They were really good!
I boiled and cooked them it in a frying pan and left no bite behind!
The taste of the meat was solid and the aroma of the herbs used was wonderful.
I want to buy them again. I wondered if four are enough, but because they’re so big, two people could each enjoy 3 pieces.
I’m very satisfied!

Translated from Japanese: They’re filling. A solid meal was completed with one pack. Not only are they juicy, but the herb scent is also authentic, and they were well received by my family! I want to order again.

Translated from Japanese: Some people may find it difficult to just boil them. I like herbs so I liked the scent. I wasn't used to the texture, so when I cut and cooked them until crispy in a frying pan, they looked like hamburgers and were very delicious. If you add a lot of garlic and put them in tomato sauce, they go well with pasta.

Translated from Japanese: The raw sausage felt like it was packed with meat, and it was filling. I think it's a sausage that the experts likes. It was so delicious that I kept remembering eating it even days after. Thank you.
