Meat...

There appears to be a lot of meat eaters on this board and while I think we should eat less and better reared meat, it doesn't mean I don't like meat.

What is your favourite cut of meat?

I am sure many will say steak but while I find a well-aged and properly prepared steak a heavenly treat, I have to say that I am bigger fan of braising.

I was at the butcher today and picked up some lamb shanks, they are going to cook for a few hours and they are going to transform into just about the best thing ever.

I'd have to say Lamb is my favourite type of meat (even over pork).

Just about any meat is pretty dern tasty, unless of course its served under golden arches or high school cafeterias...yuck. Anyway I'm usually partial to wild game and was raised on lots of pheasant, moose, deer, beaver (the tail makes AMAZING soup), of the wild game variety, fresh venison steak is probably my fav.

Although perfectly smoked spare ribs with a good dry rub...well thats about the closest thing to heaven you're going to find in the barn yard in my humble opinion.

Bacon. Although there is some debate in our house about whether bacon is a meat or a condiment. We think it may be a food group unto itself. A tasty, tasty food group.

I was a vegetarian for 3 years, and bacon was the one thing I'd cheat for.

There is nothing that can compare to a properly prepared, fresh ham.
It is tragic that most people will live out their lives never having tried a fresh ham.

My favorite species and cut of meat depends on what kind of food I'm in the mood for.

A good steak is always appreciated, but venison loin is great. Especially when the venison comes from a fat, tender doe.

This thread is making me hungry.

I also love a great aged steak, but as Charlatan mentioned, braising seems to bring out the best in many great meats; whether it's braised short ribs or other, I love that stuff.

Perhaps my all time favorite meat is ossobuco, which is traditionally braised veal shanks; but I've tried it with other meats such as lamb, beef, pork...they are all wonderful. I think I would even love braised aliens, though if they were friendly I'd rather share a meal with them then eat them.

Love me some ossobuco when the sauce is seasoned to perfection and the veal is cooked just right.... mmmmmmm. Squeeeb posted his ossobuco recipe here, I'll always wanted to do that one.

Yes, YES, and yes. OCM hit it right on the head.

I also like veal shanks, flank (skirt) steak cooked correctly, bacon, pork, Bison, and deer (I could eat venison year round).

All the ossobuco love reminds me of the wonderful, delicate flavors of bone marrow.

At home nobody cares how I eat, but when I eat it in a restaurant and pick out the bone marrow, spread it on a nice piece of crusty bread, too many people look at me like I'm nuts. If there is marrow I can't pick out, I use a straw to suck it out. The chef usually smiles but people get up and move away.

Talk about strange parts, nobody mentioned sweet breads! Man, I love me some SB's!

Is the marrow similar to the gooey connective membrane tissue, that is found in, say
turkey legs, or venison neck roasts?

I prefer to eat red meat raw.
Thinly sliced deer tenderloins with a bit of salt, garlic & pepper. Yep.

Ring, Its the soft tissue found inside the bone, you kind of have to suck it out.

I actually don't mind raw meat either, but prefer it cooked...although I have been known to tuck into a raw deer shank around a campfire, I was usually to drunk to tell what I was eating at that point so it wasn't really about the taste. I haven't done that in years, but as I understand as long as the meat is clean and fresh there is no reason you can't eat it raw.

Porterhouse is my favorite cut of meat, minimum 1” thick, grilled or hot seared rare. My husbands’ favorite cut is rib eye, med. rare. I love a slow cooked leg of lamb any day, as do my boys, I can eat me some well seasoned slow cooked mutton stew, wow, can eat that all day. I love bacon, but my favorite pork would have to be nicely marinated whole grilled tenderloin, wild boar is incredibly delicious, so too is moose, venison, elk, etc . I love the birds also, but duck is by far my favorite feathered delight...... especially with a crispy skin. I love fish, but shark would have to be my favorite swimmer, and tuna, and flounder, shrimp, oysters, clams, squid, oh, I just love anything from the sea (except urchin). Fresh water catfish is amazing and frog legs really do taste like chicken, just moister. Alligator ribs and tail are tasty, turtle soup is o.k. but I can’t get past the critter issue to really enjoy its’ flavor, snake isn’t too bad, tastes like frog to me….. Buffalo is fabulous, Ox tail divine, Squirrel brains aren't meat, per say, but with scrambled eggs they taste fine....... Mountain oysters are pretty tasty too, sliced and fried crispy.

When you grow up poor, you eat what’s put on the table, or you starve. Oh, I almost forgot rabbit, super yummy, but I would never eat something that was named, unless I was starving my children to feed it, in that case, sorry but supper wins. Reality is, outside of supermarkets, vegetables take time to grow, good soil and proper sunlight, fertilizers, water, etc….. and to get the nutrients needed to thrive, costs more than some slightly greening hamburger meat, and a handful of wild kumquats and Chinese plums. I grew up on reduced meats; life is more than cherries, arugula and tofu….. don’t get me wrong…. I love the fruits and veggies, but the meats feed me.

Speaking of marrow, I'm sure I will be looked down upon for this, but my sons teethed on steak bones..... I love the flavor of marrow and so do they. I think humans are just creating another way for some to look down on others by the U.N. making such a sweeping proclamation about personal dietary choices, shame. C'est la vie, pass me the A-1 and the Ring of Fire and the salt, lots and lots of salt......

And don't go all environmental on me, I was picking up others trash off the beaches long before the teary eyed Indian told me too (love that commercial), and planting trees for no other reason than it was the right thing to do for the animals. When you grow up off the land you respect it, you respect the animals that feed you and you respect the homes that feed them. I think the U.N. should ban cities and force everybody to live rural and ride bicycles and no more tractors for farming either (silliness). Maybe I should have posted this in the U.N. thread, I feel like I have to justify eating meat now so no one thinks I just don't care about the environment or my health, what a joke.

I had some Rack of Lamb last night that just cemented for me why I like lamb so much. Even though it wasn't prepared perfectly, it was a very tasty piece of meat.

Honestly, a perfect rotisserie-style or roasted chicken is second only to one of my filets.
I'm not really a fan of other meats, but I must say that I make a mean angus filet... 1" thick at a minimum (I prefer 1 1/4" to 1 1/2") rubbed with toasted sesame oil, EVOO, and sriracha sauce, then with kosher salt and a little organic garlic powder, and crusted with cracked black pepper. Grilled over very hot natural wood charcoal (no lighter fluid) 4 minutes on each side, then topped with a pat of butter and seared 1 - 2 more minutes with the flared flame. Rest for 2 minutes and serve. That's my favorite. Or a pepper-Pitt style filet at a really good steak house.

I do love a good, moist roasted chicken though.
Seasoned right and falling apart, it's delicious.

Hmmm.... Well, I do love a good Spencer-cut beefsteak, thick and grilled to a perfect medium-rare. Beef short ribs braised in wine are awesome if executed skillfully. And I love slow-cooked barbecue beef ribs, thick and meaty with plenty of fat. But my all time favorites are lamb ribs, grilled to sweet perfection with garlic and rosemary and olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper; lamb bacon all smoky and luscious; Elk sirloin well-marinated in olive oil, wine, and shallots; and crispy roast duck in a glaze of mulberries and juniper berries.

A nice bloody cut of prime rib(buffalo or beef), sauteed mushrooms with a dipping in au jus would serve me well.

I love duck, I haven't had duck in ages but I am going to have to do so soon. I have had such a craving lately.

I have never tried that either but I bet the rich flavoring of the duck adds to the chicken and the turkey. One of these days, I will have to fix one up. Does it get too greasy? How about gravy? I am not sure that I would be a fan of the gravy, I have never done so with Duck as it is never dry.
