    I have been eating limited beef lately, only because it's all A5 grain fed wagyu here and is so fucking rich. :eek: Just a little bit does me for a couple weeks. Mostly been eating seafood in Japan, and I don't even really like seafood... :eek:

    I imagine that'll change after living there a while.

    Veal is fine. Much lighter on my palate.


    That's it. It is the cleanliness on the palate. Or lack thereof with fatty cuts. Tenderloin is something I like, but not something I really crave. I agree about beef, and about turkey.


    Inorite. Just burn me some motherfucking beef and slather on some motherfucking cheese.

    I still love the flavor of beef fat. Yum-o.

    But my palate is not very refined.

    Nor my waistline.

    Really cold weather makes me crave the occasional short ribs and other rich dishes, but I agree with SField on the desirability of leaner cuts and smaller quantities. If I had the time to shop and access to really first class fish, I would eat fish every day.

    i cut way down on meat maybe 4-5 years ago (i'm old, remember?). it's a pity. i used to be able to eat barbecue for dinner every night. now i eat it once every couple months. same thing for good hamburgers. really love them. ms. fg brought home some lamb chops for me to cook for dinner the other night. nice fat rim on them that i seared crisp before cooking the chops rare-medium rare. the first one was like the best thing i'd ever tasted, but couldn't finish the second. i just pick my spots now. every once in a while i'll get a craving and enjoy; the rest of the time i kind of lay low. mostly fish, chicken and vegetables.

    The fat in chicken can be extremely appealing. It doesn't have the heft of beef or lamb fat or even pork (which I prefer to both lamb and beef.) Chicken can still have great depth of flavor while being light and has a nice sweetness in the fat.
