I know the tongue is a tender cut of meat, but the closest I've come to it was when I was a kid and we raised a steer to butcher it up. After putting the steer down and quartering it up I was looking at the thing as the tongue was sticking out. I asked my dad and grandpa if the wanted it and they both said no. I asked if I could cut it out and give it to my dog and they said yes.
Being as I was maybe 9 years old I wanted to get as much as I could for my dog. I grabbed hold of the tongue with one hand and a knife in the other. I planted both feet on either side and began to pull. I have to say I was amazed at how much I was able to pull out! When I couldn't get anymore to come out of the mouth I cut it off with the knife.
I couldn't believe how perfect the meat looked! And I do know my dog ate very well that day!
