Open thread for meat lovers

Consider this post an open thread to discuss which meats are the most delicious. Right now, the Cynicor choice is filet mignon with a creamy horseradish sauce, served with a side of butter-fried mushrooms. What's yours?

A juice T-Bone steak where the meat is so tender it falls free of the bone just from a look. Of course, you cannot have such a delicate piece of meat without the obligatory mushrooms in a heavy butter sauce.

Hands down, it has to be Galway Races Stew (sometimes referred to as Noah's Ark).

- 4 quarts of unpasturized mayo
- 6 fresh potatoes
- 6 fresh tomatoes
- 1/2 pound of chucked beef
- 5 chickens (still feathered, preferably still alive)
- 4 cups of garlic
- 5 cups of black pepper
- 4 cups of salt
- a pinch of onion
- 3 salmon (fresh Atlantic only)
- one donkey's hoove (grated)
- 1 panda's tail
- lard from three virile oxen
- 6 sauteed rabbit ears
- a large ham (diced)

wrap in a kangaroo's pouch and simmer over night. then pour over a side of horse, garnish with parsley and serve.

for a vegetarian alternative, simply replace the live chickens with 8 punds of tofu.

Good recipe, Garvell, but I find that two pounds droppins really spices it up.

Rebirth is one basic tenet of Buddhism, and this includes rebirth of humans as other animals, and vice-versa. As a result, many Buddhists do not kill animals and many also do not eat meat. Other common reasons cited are that killing animals and/or eating their meat are a violation of the Five Precepts, bad for one's own karma, and because of a compassion for other animals. Many vegetarian Buddhists are not vegan, but for those who are vegan, such beliefs are often due to objections about the circumstances in which the animals producing products such as milk and eggs are raised.

There's irony here to Peter espousing religion, but for the life of me I can't think of what it is.

Joshua Trupin said...

The irony is that Peter's arms are too short to box with God.

Just doing my part to warn you guys that there *are* other religions out there in the world, and in just in case you guys are wrong you might end up reincarnated as a rock. Or a worm.

In response to my ill-timed question, the Venetian waiter replied, "It's horse meat! It's good isn't it!?!?"

Moral: Always ask BEFORE you start eating it.
