    I don’t eat pork, so I chose roast beef.  Pork is actually considered a “white meat” so maybe you meant a non-poultry choice?

    Also, list the sides, I want to drool at them! (I am totally a sides kind of girl!)

    Mmmmmmm.  Porketta.  You’d be my favourite free meal of the year.

    @QueenSP11:  I have never in my life heard of “Porketta” but it doesn’t sound appietizing! I went with pork loin because I’m not a fan of beef.

    I also don’t eat pork, so I chose roast beef.  However, I would be perfectly happy with the turkey if you went with the pork.

    I dont know what porketta is (too lazy to google) and I’ve NEVER had good roast beef at a function so I voted for roast pork.

    I’ve never heard of porketta, and I’m not a fan of pork loin, so I chose roast beef. I love roast beef.

    Is your caterer providing a tasting? I seem to only eat pork at restaurants, so I would want that because it would be a treat.

    Porketta (also spelled as porchetta) is just a fattier, more flavorful boneless pork roast. A lot of people like it because it doesn’t dry out like some pork loin cuts; it contains a strip of fat underneath the crispy skin. It’s really good rolled and stuffed, or you can dry-rub it. Again, just pork loin with a bit more fat. Nothing crazy but very trendy right now in culinary circles.

    It’ll definitel be the moistest option but some people want more lean and/or recognizable cuts. I think prime rib is safer.

    Go for the pork.  I’ve never been served good beef at a large scale event like a wedding.  It’s always dry or flavorless or worse, cold.

    I would do one of the pork options because it seems to fit your heritage, and I hope you can find a way to bring in the Mexican in one way or another, even if just in a side or appetizer or dessert!

    By the way, it seems excessive to have two creamy pasta dishes with the fettucine alfredo and mac&cheese – I would stick to the mac&cheese and if you’re going to do another pasta then keep it plain so that people can have a sauce-less option.
