Your state's meat

I disagree that Ca is tofu. I think we are ground beef - burgers, tacos and burritos. Of course, central ca is tri-tip

    Tofu is indeed the 'meat' of California. 
     
    It matters not what the 38,000,000 sheeple like to eat; their ruling elite will determine what is good for them and - more importantly - pleasing to the Earth Mother, Godess Gaia.

    Pennsylvania has a split meat personality:  the meat ingredient for cheesesteak is for the East; the West favors chipped, chopped ham!

    Off the top of my head, I'd say in Kentucky it's country ham.

    Should be pork roll for New Jersey, not capicola. Why do I keep looking at these lists? Why, I ask you?

    Well, they got Virginia right. Country (Smithfield) Ham is and should be considered the state meat.

    http://www.slate.com/arti...nly_one_meat_what.html

    Yes, asserting that CA is tofu is absurd, and by the way the entry is written it's clear the author is just being silly--definitely not serious at all.
     
    Btw, there are now two threads on this article.

    Tofu as the "meat" for California? Morons!!!!! 
    Tri tip roast would be my choice---e.g. Santa Maria Tri Tip Barbecue----truly CA!

    Weird...I posted in this thread yesterday and it's gone. I wonder if I broke some rule I don't know about.
     
    Neither I nor my mother have ever heard of the "famous" Michigan Dinty Moore sandwich. Neither of us have ever heard of putting lettuce, tomato and Russian dressing on a corned beef sandwich, although we do more often than not eat corned beef on rye. I was curious, and put it to a vote. Absolutely not one of my friends or family, all of whom have lived in Michigan for most if not all of our lives, NOT ONE PERSON has ever heard of this "famous" Michigan sandwich.
     
    Where do these people get their information?
     
    Edit:
    Ah, it wasn't this thread. I posted in the other one on the subject.

    I ask myself the same. Why do I look and why am I always just shaking my head when I do read them? They are all, every single on of them written by moronic idiots. 99% of them never have left the state they are writing from.

    "North Dakota - Summer sausage"
     
    Well, It is in my fridge, and just about everyone I know in ND's fridge.  I would argue duck though, being ground zero of duck central and a shotgun in every home.  Duck is for dinner more often than beef is in our house.

    Before I even clicked on this link I knew they were going to reference the Polish Boy for Ohio.  I have lived in this state for 25 years and I can't tell you how non-widespread this sandwich is.  I do know that you can get one at a couple of places in Columbus but it's certainly not a fad that is sweeping the state.  I'm always amazed at how Cleveland-centric these lists are for us.
     
    How about Goetta (Cincinnati) or Bratwurst (Bucyrus) or anything but another reference to the non-pervasive Polish Boy.

    http://www.slate.com/arti...nly_one_meat_what.html

    I also disagree, The Site "The United Steaks Of America" Suggests: What "IF" every state had an official meat. "IF" being the operative word here.......IF indeed specific cuts of meats were to represent specific states for one reason or another, then We should be "The Tri-Tip State" being that particular cut of meat was first cut/created right here in Sunny Southern California.

    I wonder what the new Chinese owners would have to say about that.

    Well, at least they got Indiana's right. The pork tenderloin is ubiquitous. Almost every restaurant has a version of it, some good some bad, (yes, I'm looking at you Mug n' Bun). Off the top of my head I couldn't think of another meat that even comes close.

    I would point out that Smithfield Foods (Chinese Owned) is not the only producer of Smithfield Hams. It shouldn't matter anyway. As long as they employ Americans and the quality of the product doesn't suffer, who cares who owns it?....

    No. The Hillbilly Hamburger. That's a half inch thick slice of fried bologna on a bun with onions and pickles. That's where I had my first fried bologna sandwich. Swap ramps for the onions and you're in Hillbilly Heaven. Or Almost Heaven.

    I still have never been there after living in WV for 44 years. Maybe i'll take a bike ride down to Lesage this summer. I'm not a big hot dog person, but it probably wouldn't feel right going there without eating one. Lol

    YOU should care who owns it because while they're paying the American Workers, THE PROFITS ARE GOING TO CHINA so they can use that money to  buy more US businesses to the point that we become a nation of worker bees working for Chinese Business owners who are enjoying the fruits of our labor.
    As we become more Socialistic, they become Capitalists! Kinda Ironic don't you think?

     Thank You, but I don't need you to tell me what to care about. This is a forum about FOOD. If I want to discuss politics I can go to one of thousands of sites on Facebook. So I choose not to continue this discussion any further. Keep your Xenophobia to yourself.
