I’m Canadian, Chicken and Beef tend to be our go-to’s. To be honest, I’m not sure if I’ve ever had lamb! But when I think of lamb and beef, they’re very similar looking when roasted. Same with a pork roast. A roast beef and a chicken (either roasted, baked etc) are very different meats that should please all meat eaters. Now I’m hungry!

Lamb and beef definitely not alike at all! Lamb has a particular taste, very tender texture, cooks in minutes like fish, and it’s delicious. Every time i eat lamb pilaf or kebabs i feel like I’m in heaven. But stuff is expensive here in US. So if you have a free choice of lamb definitely take it with any other meat.

I voted lamb and chicken, but chicken and beef would be my second choice 🙂

I have never been served lamb at a wedding, but I would LOVE to have it as an option!

I voted chicken and beef. I do not like lamb. I will be honest though, most everyone else I know LOVES it so it might be a great choice.

I think chicken and beef are the safest options.

Thanks guys. Most of our guest list are farmers who run both lamb and beef so they are equally eaten where we are from. in my experience sometimes roast beef can be tough which was what was worrying me and I feel the same sometimes about chicken, plus there is a lot of bits of a roast chicken that I don’t like to eat! However the usual is beef and chicken. I am so confused! Thank you I r all of your responses so far!

I would just play it safe with chicken and beef to keep the guests happy. I personally love lamb though.

Chicken and beef, but where I live the beef is AAA and near impossible to be tough especially if cooked to medium.
Personally we’re having roast beef and glazed ham…

Would you consider a turkey? Roast beef and Turkey often go together, especially during Thanksgiving/Christmas

I initially voted chicken and beef because they are pretty standard. After reading the update, I might go with lamb and beef if that’s what’s preferred by your guests and if it is economical.
