Sichuan: Beef Tendon

Market: Marina Food
City: Union City, CA

Another appetizer we picked up along with the pig’s ear was the (cold cut) beef tendon. It’s another one of our favorite appetizers. The beef tendon they had was a mild version, shown below. I’ve had spicier before, where the beef tendon dish is much redder.

Served cold with a dense but chewy texture, the beef tendon accompanied by chili oil is not immediately spicy, although if you start eating mouthfuls of tendon the spiciness can start to creep up on you. (World to Table)
