Every year I ask for rib-eye for christmas. It is the most beautiful steak, well-marbled and rare!

Yes! NY Strip - tender and flavorful - I wait for a sale. Filet mignon is best, but not cheap. I usually drink my scotch... Hanger (aka flap) steak is very flavorful but not as tender (can be cheap) - but just beat on it a little, marinate and grill. Tasty!

I like fresh beef and chicken liver, heart, tongue, hate kidney. Easy to explain why I hate kidney, but difficult to explain why I like the others. It's just... gooooood!

this got me thinking a bit (not too much). the answer could be the same depending on the why? eg. most> chicken cause i like the taste & its cheap. least> chicken cause its high in poly & has a high n6/n3 ratio etc..

Beef Steaks. Porterhouse, Eye Fillet, Rib Eye, Scotch. I love them all. Cooked rare.

Why? Because they taste amazing! :)

I'll give a special mention to liver for it's super food properties.

I don't think I've come across a meat that I have a dislike for.

A sweet, tender roasted leg of lamb.... mmmmnn. Wish it wasn't so pricey - even most of us Kiwi's can't afford our own NZ Lamb cuts! Venison is probably a close second. Not really so keen on chicken if I'm going to pick a least favourite. It just lacks that satisfaction red meat delivers.

My preferred meat (sounds so dirty.. let's leave my boyfriend out of this) is definitely fish, especially of the raw orientation ;p I absolutely love love LOVE sashimi and I eat it almost every day. My favorite is salmon, which is awesome cooked and just outta sight raw.

I like a good NY strip as much as the next American, but steak isn't my favorite. I loooove beef tongue (especially in tacos de lengua) and stomach (as in menudo). It's funny.. I'm having such a hard time getting used to liver but tongue and stomach have been staples in my diet for as long as I can remember!

Chicken is... ehh. I exhausted my tolerance for chicken meat during my chronic-dieting, plain-grilled-skinless-chicken-breast-centered days.

I haven't eaten pig since 2007, because I'm speciesist and I want a pig as a pet. (:

1: Beef (preferably roasts, but I also like steaks cooked medium-rare, but I don't buy it often enough to know which kinds of steaks).

2: Fish of all kinds, but I like cod, shrimp, sardines (grilled) and maybe trout, but that might be because I grew up that way.

3: Pork (pork shoulder is nice, but I like center cut roasts as well).

4: I hate poultry, but I can tolerate legs and thighs. But no matter how much chicken I eat, I'm hungry, unless it's got coconut milk or fatty things like that. Oh, I like small birds (pigeon and such), grilled.

But growing up....
I hated beef, but I think it's because my mom overcooked it. She's a great cook and all, but her steaks... (don't tell her I told you that!...)
was ok with grilled chicken legs, preferably grilled,
LOVED pork better than candy,
and loooooved all fish.

But I always had ravenous beef cravings, then I would try and eat it, but I'd just gag and spit it out. I'm so glad I can eat beef now! Yuuummmy!

Least favorite: chicken. I don't even care about the omega-6 content. It just has no flavor to me. I could put 10 different herbs/spices and I'd still be like
what-are-your-most-preferred-and-least-preferred-meats?

But my favorite: Bison. New York Steak or ribeye steak (which I just had tonight for dinner). A really close second would be beef chuck. Why? The fat. what-are-your-most-preferred-and-least-preferred-meats?

Easy - beef steaks, in particular Ribeye and T-Bone/Porterhouse, lamb roasts, lamb loin chops, and the duck (this is a new thing, definitely my favorite poultry).

Least fav is dry white chicken meat.

I LOVE RIBS! I think it has something to do with holding it in my hot little hands and ripping the meat right off the bone. I do not care for Round Steak. I used to put cream of mushroom soup on them to make them edible, but now it's a bit harder. And there is always so much of it when I get a 1/2 beef...

My favorite animal proteins would be red meat of all types - beef, bison, lamb, goat - so many recipes, yum! Burgers, rib eye, taco meat, chili, stews, chops, goulash, soup, curries, steak, ribs - oh the list could go on!

A second would be seafood - wild fish like salmon, monkfish, shrimp, lobster, crab, crayfish, etc.

A third would be pastured pork - chops, bacon, loin, carnitas, baby back ribs, etc.

A fourth would be duck, pheasant, and other poultry.

My least favorite is chicken breast by far! I try to avoid it. Even the pastured part. Ugh - tastes like rubber (the conventional), the texture made worse by reheating! When I do eat chicken it's usually the leg or thigh, sometimes a back or neck - almost anything to avoid the breast! LOL!

Okay organ meats except for poultry giblets cooked as a stuffing with Indian spices are really dead last for me. Someday I'll learn to appreciate them better, but that day is not TODAY! Ha.

Fish, fish and more fish. I eat a lot of tropical species. My favourite being bangus (milk fish), great for breakfast. also eat octopus, shark and squid in its own ink. I also like northern species such as mackerel, smelt, salt water rainbow trout, swordfish, salmon and cod.

Land animal sources of meet would include lamb fattened on pastures and deer. Also free ranging hens, we had fighting cocks. Why? Because I grew up on a island in a northern sea on a sheep farm with a commercial fishing licence. Now I eat goat and mutton.

Bacon, prime rib, NY strip, corned beef, jerky, lobster, shrimp, calamari (no breading), wild alaska salmon, leg o'lamb, liverwurst, beef/bison marrow, ribs with mesquite rub (not sweet glaze), rosemary garlic roast chicken (yes, with the skin on, else it might as well be cardboard), broth, bison hot dogs, ham steak, eggs (ok, they're fetal meat), carnitas, lamb chops, sashimi, and of course as Rhubarb pointed out Scotch...

Might as well add Tequila as well. I think that's a meat too, and if it's not, well, I'll pretend.

Duck legs, roasted rabbit, spot prawns (BF catches for me!), sockeye salmon (BF, again, catches it for me), halibut (can only afford this when my BF catches it for me), dunginess crab (apparently I'd starve without my BF, him again), ribeye steak, lamb roast, pork tenderloin, RIBS.

I usually can't afford beef, though I love a good cut of steak. My grandparents have a sheep farm, so lamb is cheap and plentiful at our house! A couple times every summer there's a big lamb roast, about 4 lambs on spits in the front yard all day, lots of mint sauce for serving, so good! I like classic roasted chicken, very comfort-food for me, and baked chicken thighs have always been a favourite of mine. When I am on the west coast (aka when I'm not in Montreal), we eat SO much seafood. It costs nothing for me to send my boyfriend out in the dingy to catch a few crabs for dinner, can do that all year round! In the summer he catches ~1000 lbs of prawns a day, so I get to fill our deep freeze with them. In the salmon season I usually get 6 whole salmon, it's my favourite fish, but the BF is allergic (fisherman allergic to fish, classic). Halibut is up-the-wall-call-your-best-friend-to-complain expensive, so I only get that a few times a year, when I beg for it!

My favourite things ever, ever though: RIBS. Go pork!

Favorite: Porterhouse and Ribeye (aged) ... to me these are the most flavorful cuts that grill/roast tender.

Least Favorite: Liver in whole form. When you've had the jobs I've had in my life, there's just something particularly unappetizing about the mere sight of this.

Lamb wins hands down. It's just the best tasting meat. We've just received half a lamb from a farmer my DF knows/works with. We're due a cow share too (grassfed!!!).

My favourite fish is mackerel & then sardines. I wasn't that keen on salmon, but quite like it now!

Least favourite meats, I don't have one in particular, but I sicken myself if I have too much pork or chicken. Not keen on liver, but trying to find a way to get over the texture. It's not the taste, it's definitely a texture thing with that one! I can eat p??t?? though :-)!!!

lamb wins. goat is second place and beef made a podium finish as well. sadly, chicken didn't even make it into the competition, whereas its eggs were used as medals for the lucky winners
