When I was a teen, my parent bought a whole cow, had it butchered and packaged and put in a large deep freeze. It was so disgusting to suddenly see the deep freeze completely full! It was terrible meat, full of veins and it was tough. I was so grossed out about it that I couldn't eat beef. I also hated the idea of eating meat once I was old enough to know what it was. I couldn't look into the brown eyes of a cow and imagine anyone wanting to kill and eat it. So the answer to your question is beef. We never ate veal or organ meat so those weren't an issue.

I stopped eating veal when I was a young teenager, as soon as I found out that it's baby cow.

Over the years I gradually started decreasing my meat consumption. My parents were never big red meat eaters, so I naturally never became a big red meat eater. I learned more details about US factory farming in my environmental and public health classes in college and became disgusted. I started eating more veggie patties and sandwiches. Surprisingly I really liked veggie sandwiches, probably because I never cared for cold cuts. Then I finally became a vegeterian for good. One of the best decisions I made both morally and for my health. I thought I would miss meat, especially things like BBQ chicken pizza or buffalo chicken wings, but I don't at all (I've replaced those dishes with BBQ tofu pizza and buffalo cauliflower, which are better!). There are so many delicious vegeterian recipes and creative ideas now that you don't need meat at all to make a meal fulfilling.
