Eat the Whole Animal
As part of living a Paleo lifestyle, we recommend eating the whole animal: fat, bones, organs, and tendons. This includes tongue, which you’ll probably see stocked alongside organs, even though it’s technically just another muscle meat. It’s a muscle meat Americans have largely gotten away from eating. This is good news for us, because it means you can usually get quality meat for less money by going for the tongue.
How to Cook It
Beef tongue is probably the most common. Because it’s basically beef, you can cook it much like you would cook beef: usually by stewing, boiling, poaching, or roasting. You can even get creative with your slow-cooker and make shredded beef tongue to put on tacos. Tell your friends it’s pulled pork and they’ll never know!
