It is also a mistake to assume that everybody likes their food cooked the same way. I prefer my food cooked well with lots of mouth resistance. You say that you could cook a filet mignon in a way that people would not like it and it has been my experience that nobody cooks a filet the way I like it, which is super, extra well done. As for octopus, I like it chewy.

lots of mouth resistance??

is this a high-brow way to say "tough" ??

To me "tough" means inedible, or nearly so. Mouth resistence (to me) means simply that it is chewy, that it takes some chewing to eat.

I don't eat anything that isn't fish/seafood, poultry, pork, beef, or lamb. I have had bison once, and might be willing to try some other things, but nothing too crazy.

I don't eat veal. That's been true for 25 years. Pigs were next. They are far too smart and friendly to deserve what is done to them.

Now I don't eat cows either. Most Turkey or chicken. Unless it was raised in a humane manner. I actually know someone who does this.

What I do still eat, sparingly; are wild fish. Organic free range chicken and turkey from a person who I know. Muscles, clams and shrimp.

If it's not on this list, it's not on my dinner plate.

One Halal animal I would not eat is an ostrich. I can't bring myself to eat something that looks so dumb.

All of them, except fish and occasionally chicken and turkey. I used to be a vegetarian but gave it up.

Over cooked and chewy? I used to like my steaks that way until hubby educated me now I eat red meat medium. Chicken if it's overcooked and dry might as well throw it out.
