Brazil has one of the largest and most sustainable cattle herds in the world.
Brazil is today the world’s largest exporter of beef (20% of global exports) and its second largest producer.
Brazilian cattle enjoy good nutrition thanks to the wide availability of open pasture lands as well as locally produced grains.
The different breeds of cattle have been carefully selected and cross-bred to and thrive in the local tropical conditions.
Beef tongue (also known as neat's tongue or ox tongue) is a cut of beef used made of the tongue of a cow.
Meat from the tongue is prized for its tenderness and a rich flavor similar to pot roast or brisket.
Thin cut is perfect for hot pot like Japanese shabu-shabu or sukiyaki, Korean Jeongol. Tender and beefy.
Usually beef for hotpot is sliced to 2-3mm (1/8 inch) thick, thinner than grilling slice.
Thick cut is perfect for grilling like Japanese Yakiniku (やき肉) or Korean Bulgogi (불고기). Springy and juicy.
The ideal thickness of the beef slice is ~6mm (1/4 inch), usually thicker than hot pot slice.
