Smokeyokie, the best way to describe beef tongue is like the texture of a finely shredded pork butt that is very soft and a bit dry (if that makes any sense). you have to remove the skin around the tongue to shred the meat and then mix it with the meat from the cheek..the best way to eat it is by mixing the tongue and cheek together since the cheek meat has a lot of fat in taste like a creamy buttery tender version of a brisket without all the rub that you would normally put on a brisket...that's the best way I can describe it but barbacoa can also include the eyes of the cow and the brains (which are also very tasty)...put the meat on a corn tortilla with onions, cilantro and hot sauce and you've got some gooooood eats....its like a tradition down here in south texas to have barbacoa every sunday...
If it was easy, everybody would be doing it!!!!
