It is a muscle that goes from the styloid process, which comes off the temporal bone of the skull (kind of near the back of the jaw) and attaches to the underside of the tongue. It helps to pull the tongue up and back and aids in swallowing food.

Anything that is muscle (and there is a lot of muscle in a human body) is meat. Some people think that meat and muscle are two distinct things; they are not. They are one and the same.
