So my fiance and I went food tasting the other weekend, and picked out our chicken and veggie options. But I’m torn between doing beef or pork for the third option. Here are the descriptions of each:
8 OZ SIRLOIN STEAK
U.S.D.A. black angus choice center cut sirloin served with a caramelized onion and mushroom sauce $21/plate
ROASTED PORK LOIN
Whole roasted pork loin sliced and served with an apple cider reduction sauce $16/plate
I liked the roasted pork loin, fiance liked the beef better (I thought it was too salty). The beef was well cooked, but the ends were all tendony and inedible. Maybe we just got a bad piece? So I was thinking of doing the pork loin, but I’m afraid that people will be disappointed that there is no beef option (we are in Wisconsin, after all).
The other option is to have both, for a total of four dinner options (the venue does not charge more for this). But is that too much? Would no one choose pork loin anyway when there’s a beef option? Would you be disppointed if pork, chicken, and pasta were your only options? Thanks in advance for the help!

people can be very picky when it comes to pork, and more than likely would prefer beef. a safer choice i believe

kajan457: if you can do both at no charge why not let the guests decide? As a guest I can say I like having options. FWIW typical steak\chicken\veggie options are safe but if you can offer the pork also as a choice I say offer both beef and pork.

Personally I’d prefer prok considering how you described the beef, but there are far more people who are unwilling/unable to eat pork than beef. Beef is the safer choice.

If they don’t charge extra I say both

Both sound like something that I would eat, but if I had to choose, I would opt for the beef (I am all about mushroom sauce). If there is not really an upcharge to have 4, why not have all of them?

I’d go pork, but that’s my preference. In our immediate family of 11 people total, I think 3-4 of us would choose pork, but even then I only know of 2 definite people. Pork is not the normal preference for people, I think.

I am personally really weird about pork. I would say beef is a safer option.

Omg. I want both. I would offer four options since there’s no extra charge.

Hey it’s a win-win for both. No additional cost that’s fantastic!
