If I was going to be limited to one meat for the rest of my life, I would choose pork. Everything but the squeal! It's delicious in every one of its different forms. Butt, shoulder, ham, loin, belly, ribs, cheeks, organs, lard, and more. Cured, smoked, grilled, slow roasted, baked. My mouth is watering.

I can't say pork is my favorite. It ranks maybe 4th on my list behind lamb, beef, and chicken. But I do love sausages and bacon, and occasionally we'll have ribs or shoulder (shoulder is a nice inexpensive cut when you have to feed a crowd). Ham is way down toward the bottom for me. The salt just doesn't agree with me. Unless it's something like prosciutto, I rarely eat it.

And who ever thought of putting cubed beef in an omelette, or scalloped potatoes, or a pea salad? I mean, how many uses are there for ham alone?
Pork. The other white meat. Except for ham. Then it's the other pink meat
Once again we seem to have the same taste in food.

These are two of my favourites: Mock Armadillo (Danish meatloaf) and Linda's pot of pork.

I like the looks of that pot of pork, too
I think I'll make this with the leftover tenderloin I did not cook.

I like pork for its versatility. But, I have to say, my favorite red meat is venison. My favorite "white" meat is turkey. And, I do love lamb, but it is so expensive. Pork, on the other hand, is often reasonable, and because it is so versatile, that's what I buy.

If I could only eat one meat it would be beef. I'm glad I don't have to limit myself to just one though! I do love pork. As someone mentioned, ham goes so perfectly with so many things (scalloped potatoes, beans, potato salad, etc.). I love to cook up some chopped bacon and add it to green beans. A juicy tender pork roast with apple sauce is delicious! Country style pork ribs cooked on a bed of sauerkraut is one of my favorites.

I prefer to braise raw shoulders or sirloin, then separate into chunks and freeze them separately to use in various recipes. My current favorite use is to cut a chunk into a fairly fine dice and make my own version of chop suey.
