I got into a conversation with some people last week when one posed the question “If you could only have one for the rest of your life, would you eat Pork or Beef?”
Immediately , I thought beef was the clear answer. Not even close. But, as we discussed things more (no, we were not high) a decent case for pork was made. Decent enough for me to say “hey, I’mma waste some space on my blog with a poll about this…”
So, before you jump into your answer, consider a few things.
With beef you’re getting all these and more: all cuts of steak, brisket, pastrami, corned beef, hot dogs, tartare, burgers ect…
Seems like an open and shut case, right? Well, hold you fucking horses, brahh!!
With Pork you’re getting: Pork chops, Ribs (the better of the two types, I might add), ham, Pork belly and, most of all…BACON. Yes…that one word is what threw a stick in the spokes for me. Motherfucking bacon.
Now, to be honest, I still think beef is the clear choice here but I do think it’s closer than most people might think. So, I’m curious…what do you think? If you lived on an island and they had one type of animal to eat for the rest of your life, what would you want it to be? It can be prepared anyway and they can use the whole animal. While pigs and cows are the obvious choice, I threw in some other options for the sake of fairness and to cater to all the people out there with shitty taste.
I love both lamb and chicken but, let’s be honest, one lacks the variety of beef and Pork and the other is only as good as what’s on top of it.
Also, I left out seafood cause that’s a different beast all together…and it would probably win, somehow.
What do you think
