I think more people would like beef and chicken, but that pork dish sounds soooo good so I’d go for pork and chicken!

While I’d pick the pork over the beef, I think that beef is a safer option.  A lot of people don’t eat pork even if they do eat meat.

Agree with PP’s – I don’t eat much meat but dang that pork sounds good! I’d choose it over the beef for sure, but beef is usually the safer option. Are you having a spot on the RSVP for the guests to choose their plates or is it buffet style? I would maybe check with some family members and friends that have been invited to gather their thoughts – they may be able to provide some insight as to if there are more than a few who do not eat pork.

Do you have a vegetarian option?


id pick beef and pork and your friend who only eats poultry can have the vegetarian option.

Are you sure you don’t have any vegetarian guests? I’m a little confused about your guest who “doesn’t eat mammals” but is OK with eating chicken. I’m only asking because apparently some people think chicken counts as a vegetarian option.

murriage :  just a note that parmesan cheese  isn’t actually vegetarian because of the way it’s made (with calf renet).

I’d go chicken and beef. Or pork and beef and give your friend the veggie option.

The pork and chicken sound delicious. Maybe the beef is good, but the description isn’t very specific, so I can’t tell what the flavors would be.

I have a lot of family who won’t eat red meat or are vegetarian so I think chicken is definitely the way to go. Pork can be hit or miss so I think beef is probably a safer option.

Apple butter is a love-it-or-hate-it ingredient, so I’d pick the beef because more people would be likely to actually eat it.
