    Nutmeat! I was raised a vegetarian and to me, chicken, beef and lamb all taste pretty much the same - like rubber!

    I would go with beef! it has so many variations from the filet mignon to hamburger.And the hamburger has so many versatile uses from the sandwich itself to casseroles to spaghetti sauce and even sheppard's pie(mashed potatoes and hamburger mixed together).
    Steaks can be grilled, sauteed, pan fried, sliced and diced for salads.. the possibilities are endless! So beef would definitely be my choice!

    It would be chicken. For one, It is healthy and full of protein if cooked properly. Also, There is such a vast array of recipes for chicken so you never really need to become bored with it.

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No, I don't think you could ever get bored of chicken ^_^  It can be seasoned and cooked to taste like many things, I guess that's why everything "tastes like chicken" ^_^

    My preferred type of meat would be chicken because it can used in any type of dish from salads to soups plus it is low in calories and less fattening.

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Chicken is so versatile, You can even substitute if for red meats in a lot of recipes ^_^

    It would be fish. I love fish, especially baked, and I think most anything goes well with it. I know chicken is very versatile, too, but my choice would be fish.

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Personally I think fish would be the healthiest choice, bravo ^_^  If I had to pick just one type it would be salmon, how about you?

    2. ithabise profile image85
      ithabiseposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Salmon is probably my favorite fish. That is one "deep" fish, in taste that is! If I were a bear, I'd be eager for the spawning season, too!

    Hamburger. My favorite is meatloaf. I prefer the ground beef over steak, but that's just me.

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      There is so much you can do with ground beef! I usually use ground turkey in place of most GB recipes though... thats just how I was raised ^_^

  11. vespawoolf profile image94

    Is Is "the meaty kind" an acceptable answer? If not then I'm going pork. I know, I know but to quote one expert on the subject "But bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste gooood"

    What a tough question - how do you choose between a succulant lamb roast - a beefburger cooked on the bbq  - pork with the crackling cooked to perfection - Bacon on the bbq .... Will keep thinking about this one as those lamb chops were delicious !

    Chicken. I love eating chicken in pretty much in any way whether it be roasted, deep fried, or just Chick-fil-A. If I had to eat only one meat, I'd choose chicken.

    1. George Greene Jr. profile image60
      George Greene Jr.posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I agree with all but Chic-fil-a!  Their ckicken doesn't taste right to me(neither does the other fasr food fried chicken sandwiches). But yes chicken is as versatile as ground meat as I use a can of chunk chicken if I am out of tuna for casseroles

    2. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Ah nice to see you George, I tried to comment on yours, but can't, the option isn't available.
      While beef and chicken are both versatile there is a particular flavor that beef has and chicken doesn't. Chicken can be used but will lack some flavor

  20. WickedLittleLiar profile image82
    WickedLittleLiarposted 8 years ago

    I think I'd have to say turkey since it's my favorite kind of sandwich to eat. Chicken runs a close second though. I had to really think about this one.

    It would be chicken.  As a child, everything was "chicken", just a different color.  Ham was pink chicken.  Chicken was tan chicken.  Beef was brown chicken and the list could go on.

    It is a hard choice for me as I am fond of both chicken and fish! But since you asked only one, I go for fish. I am fond of fish fry cooked with mild spices and lightly coated with breadcrumbs. My mother often made this tasty dish and I enjoyed it very much!

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

    2. ishwaryaa22 profile image76
      ishwaryaa22posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Sorry no. But it is sort of Indian version of British fish and chips! It is marinated with chili powder and turmeric powder (along with little salt) and left aside for 1 hour. Then before frying it on the pan, it is lighly coated with breadcrumbs.

    I’d have to say beef! There are so many things you can do with it and contrary to popular belief it is one of the healthiest food choices one can make; it was actually recommended to me by a very renowned heart specialist and who am I to argue with that?? smile

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Who could argue with that? ^_^  I think it's the type of beef that makes it unhealthy. Naturally grass fed beef is actually very healthy and much tastier.

    grumpiornotposted 8 years ago

    Not sure if fish counts as meat, but I love a tuna steak, singed on the outside and basically, sashimi in the middle.
    Otherwise, sirloin steak - to my mind, is the tastiest cut.
    Funny thing, I notice that not one person has chosen veal... it is interesting to me how few omnivores have an issue eating lamb (effectively a young sheep) but many don't like the idea of eating veal (possibly those huge baby cow eyes evoke more emotion)?

    1. Mama Kim 8 profile image89
      Mama Kim 8posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I count it and I have to agree that that is one delicious way to eat a tuna steak!
      I have never tried either veal or lamb... I was raised with no red meat and now that I cook for myself I just haven't thought about either of those options.

    Flank steak! So versatile. Just change up the preparation method and swap out different spices and you've got lots of different meals. It's also not as expensive as other cuts of beef.
