What's your favorite protein (meat, etc.) and why, /ck/?

>> No.6517043

If you're talking industrially farmed meat I'd rather have wild caught seafood, beans or tofu. If you count traditionally farmed meat it's all good, but I have a real weakness for good pork. It's just really hard to find, and when you do it's very expensive.

Fucking sardines.

I can eat sarrdines everyday until i die. They're just so goddamn cheap, tasty and nutritious. I can't get enough of them. I eat them at least 5 times a week, different kinds, different recipes, but I need to have my sardine dose everyday. It's absolute god tier food, i don't know how I went about 18 years of my life without having daily sardines.

What are your favourite recipes? I love fish but I just find sardines to be okay. I don't mind them, but I couldn't get excited over them - which is weird because I love pretty much all other fish. Change me anon!

Do you eat the spines? I enjoy canned sardines but it's such a hassle to take out the bone for me.

Beef. Always and forever.
Not only is the beef industry the most regulated, but it tastes heavenly and I'm also anemic and so at certain times, I get huge cravings for steak or braised shanks and sautéed or creamed spinach (both, at the same meal).

>> No.6517152

I'm not really a cook, but I usually eat my sardines with eggs. I make omeletes with cheese and sardines. One thing I really like to make is fry some eggs in a ban, then add sardines while it's still frying, then I add rice and mix it all until it looks ready. You can add some sauce and vegetables to make it even better. I'm a newbie cook, but sardines are something I always try to add in what I make.

probably beef

although I eat it like once every two weeks because muh saturated fats and the fact I'm broke

>> No.6517185

beef is my favorite or turkey, but turkey is too expensive at most times of the year. i generally eat more chicken to save money. i'd say i eat chicken 4-5 time a week and beef and fish once or twice.

>> No.6517258

The spines are the best part, I separate them to consume on their own.

>> No.6517284

For meat definitely beef.
Birds gotta be quail but too expensive where I live.
Fish any kind of tuna or salmon

Try them with a bit of Tobasco and fish sauce, and a green onion on the side.

Also, Beachcliff is GOAT

Pork has the best variety:

>fried pork skins/chicharrones
>link sausages
>breakfast sausage
>pork chops
>pork loin
>ham hocks
>pulled pork
>pork ribs
>salted pork
>smoked pork necks
>hog jowl
>hot dogs

The list goes on and on.

But I think beef and dairy is the best.

>burgers (I could stop here)
>steaks (porterhouse is my favorite)
>flank (e.g. carne asada)
>ice cream
>roast beef (e.g. Arby's)
>roast beef (e.g. grandma's version with mashed potatoes)
>chicken fried steak
>beef ribs
>all-beef dogs
>pho with beef

Probably squid. It's affordable, versatile, easy to cook, and delicious.

>> No.6518164


>> No.6518190

Mine would be shellfish such as lobster tail, lump crab and shrimp.

I don't feel so "meat drunk" after eating a good serving of shellfish like I would beef or pork, and I like the Omega3 benefits of shellfish.

Shit that's hard.

I like squid, lobster tail, ribs but my favorite has to be a nice med-rare stake.

>> No.6518224

Me too. I love the texture of shellfish and I don't care for a lot of fatty meats (other than chicken dark meat and the occasional well-marbled steak). I would eat it every single day if I lived where it was fresh and inexpensive.

Probably chickpeas because they taste good even just plain boiled, have lots of fiber and nutrition, and I can do a lot of things with them, like sandwich spreads, tacos, and you can even puree them and use it as a ricotta replacement in lasagna and pasta dishes

Also pic related, chickpeas roasted with curry powder is awesome

Fish [seafood] or beef.

probably chicken. I like how its not very heavy and how many ways you can eat it. other than that, eggs, which I suppose still are chicken.

I'm growing really fond of seitan, it's just as versatile as tofu without tasting like wet cardboard.

is that something you buy or make? it looks almost identical to meat
