How often do you eat beef?

I'm just curious. 

I can't get the clicky poll function to work.

Re: How often do you eat beef?

  • I probably eat it about twice a month from October-March and once a week the others months (grilling mainly).

  • Not too rarely but not a lot of it in one sitting either.

    I don't cook chicken much, I just don't like it. It's boring. 

    Today we had beef rouladen, which was basically a small thin steak's worth for everyone, and that was a 'meaty' meal for us. If we make 1 lb of ground beef into a meal, it's at least a dinner plus 2 adult size lunches, if not 2 dinners. 

    Lately I have been on a Japanese cooking spree and there you get really thinly sliced beef and then use maybe 6 slices, so that is maybe 1/3 lb or something. 

  • I eat beef probably 2 times a week (maybe).  Maybe more depending on what I have cooked lately.  I don't usually seek it out.  I am much more into chicken and fish.  But I get in the mood every once in a while for it.
  • 2-3 times a month. Oddly, I find it normally coincides with my PMS.
  • Rarely.  Maybe 5 times a year.  I got E Coli from an undercooked burger in 2005 and didn't eat beef again until very recently.

  • 2x/week (about).  I usually make a pound a week or so.

  • Never. I hate the taste and smell but I am not vegetarian or anything.
  • I also crave beef around PMS.

    I probably eat it 1-3x/month. Maybe once/month at home (well, two-three times since if we cook it, its usually a lb and we then have lunches!) and very occassionally out. I had a filet mignon last week and a burger two weeks prior.

    I think it is.   I do not mind  I love filet.... @ $27 lb it's little to expensive to eat regularly..

  • I LOVE beef, but rarely eat it.  Maybe about 4-5 times a year.  We grill steaks on father's day, DH birthday, my birthday and a few other times in the summer.  That is it. 

    We have switched to ground turkey as a substitute for ground beef for dishes that ask for gb.  We have 2-3 meatless meals a week.

  • Never. I can't digest it. I haven't had beef in about 10 years.
  • I think about twice a week on average. I've been craving it a lot more during pregnancy.

  • About once a week. We like tacos but sometimes I will use ground turkey instead. DH also makes a really good pasta sauce with beef!
  • Pretty much only in the warm months when we grill burgers or steaks.  Otherwise, only if I go out or to someone else's house -- maybe once/month.
  • I like beef and dislike chicken.  DH like chicken much better than beef (although he doesn't dislike anything).  Anyway, he does most of our cooking, so we mostly eat chicken.  We probably eat beef once or twice a week.  When I cook, its usually a vegetarian meal.
    These are a few of my favorite things

  • Never. It's been two years since I've had a steak.  
  • never

  • 2-3 times a week normally.  We have a whole freezer just for beef.
  • 1-2x/week.  I would eat it more often but DH works up north and we usually only have 2 meals together each week.  I could eat beef every single day if given the chance  :)  I went on a bit of a beef bender once I had my gall bladder removed and could actually eat beef again without getting sick. 

    Oddly enough, I do prefer turkey burgers to beef burgers but I do love me some turkey! 


  • Maybe once or twice per year, but some years not at all. My H eats it a lot more than I do.
  • About twice a week. Sometimes less.

  • When we go out for it- maybe 1-2 times a month. I never buy the stuff although Dh might in the summer. I rarely will eat it though because I need it to be super lean. I can't stand fatty meat. *shudder*
  • Never.

    The last time was when I was in 8th grade. 

  • We try to keep it to 1-2 times a week.

  • I use ground turkey instead of ground beef.  Our beef intake goes up during the summer because of grilling, but it still only ends up averaging maybe 3-4 times a month for the year.

  • About once or twice a week.  
  • I eat beef most days since I eat a low carb diet. About 75% of the beef I eat is locally sourced, grassfed beef - I'd like to make that an even higher percentage but I don't have room in my freezer for 1/2 cow right now.
