Hey, don't worry. Only four of those responding so far were able and willing to reveal a (singular) favorite. Indecision rules.

So, you are in good company!

Pork baby back ribs, slow cooked on the grill for about 3 hours after a rub of seasoned salt, garlic powder and black pepper. I coat 'em with a homemade BBQ sauce for the last 15 minutes. Mmmmmm.......heaven on a bone

Lamb chops, grass fed local lamb only. Marinated lightly in olive oil, with lots of chopped garlic, a splash of soy sauce and a splash of whiskey. Each chop topped with a sprig of rosemary. Grilled over charcoal. Served with grilled flatbread, rice, and assorted grilled vegetables. That's my favorite meat.

He'll be mad again for spending time watching football when he could have gotten in a good line.

I'm waiting for my tivo to spool up the evening game, but someone is going to have to pinch hit for me for the rest of the night!

This is the appetizer combo at the most relaxing Thai joint; it has fish, fowl, and veggies; add a bowl of brown rice and it's a complete meal.

Yep same here...almost....'cept some cracker crumbs instead of the corn flakes (though that sounds yummy) mixed with the self rising flour, and we don't use pecans.....but the exact same cooking technique!

LOVE those fresh Louisiana shrimp.
My cholesterol was fine! But my triglycerides were high so Doc has me on 'degreasers'...pop one pill a day....he seems happy now. But like you, I cut back on the good stuff about a week or so before I have to pay a visit to the vampire go in for a blood test. I know it's kinda cheating to do it that way, but it makes him happy and it only makes me unhappy for a week or so. So it's retty much "win-win".
------------------------------
BTW....this is one of those unhappy weeks......gotta go in next week for routine blood work.......Cr*p!

It is amazing... but that herb butter on top is great.

It works wonders for a less fatty piece of beef steak also.

My favorite is Soft-Shell Crabs fried golden brown.
Next would be Shrimp cooked anyway that is possible.
Next would be Oysters fried lightly brown.
Next would be boiled Crabs
Next would be fried speckled trout or baked stuffed flounder.
Every now and then I enjoy a marinated rib-eye steak. (best cooked by me)

Can you tell that I'm a Southern guy/gal?

Sounds like me. I still prefer Ahi Tuna, but basically if it swims, walks, crawls, or attaches sessiley(?) in the ocean, I'm a fan. And ribeyes too.
