    I think Beef Brisket can be a little dry if over cooked and the red wine and choco doesnt sound very good. So unless there are many people who cant eat pork for religious reasons, I say Pork.

    I would choose beef over pork, but you may want to have poultry or fish as an option in case guests don’t eat red meat. The rest of the meal sounds delicious!

    @ApocalypseCow:  Do you have many Jewish or Muslim guests? Pork is often off limits for religious reasons.

    i don’t really eat pork or beef, but if i had to choose one, i’d choose beef.

    I would prefer the pork.  The beef’s sauce sounds a unusual, which could be really good but I imagine some people would be skeptical.  For the purpose of pleasing a crowd I’d go pork.

    I would see if you can taste it first. I would usually pick beef but I agree that the sauce sounds a little odd so I might go with the pork. I think both would go well with the other foods you are serving

    I choose beef because I cannot stand pork. Even the word makes me feel nauseous.

    I like beef.  I also suggest doing a tasting to see which you prefer, and if you think the sauce might be a bit exotic for most guests, ask if they can serve it on the side.

    I love me some brisket!  I don’t understand the chocolate in the sauce though – red wine sauce is delicious but red wine and chocolate?  But you’ve tried it, so if you like it, I say go for it.
