Is Black Angus beef the next white meat?

Griller | Jul 15, 2007 09:53 AM

We were dining out on a low-moderate budget at a nice and fairly new 2+ star restaurant nearby. Friday nights they sponsor a Martini Madness promo; any drink with a gin or vodka base is $5. All premium labels included. I like that!

Back to the story...

After great soups, a sweet pepper bisque for my beloved, a three cheese onion for me; we studied the compact menu for good entrees. My wife ordered baked whitefish in a cream sauce, which was very tasty and a generous portion. The restaurant's Angusburger caught my eye because I love a well executed hamburger, and I've never tasted Angus beef. That's what I chose from the menu, and ordered it med rare with well-grilled onions. The kitchen missed slightly on the prep, the hamburger came to me more on the medium side than medium rare. Okay, not something to get over-wrought about so I set to wrestling with the well-portioned burger. After consuming just a bit less than half of my burger, I began to think that there wasn't even a slight hint that I was eating beef. No true flavor came from the beef itself; and I wasn't going to doctor it up with condiments and seasonings.

My question is thus: Is nouvelle beef going the way of pork, to become the next white meat?
