Viewpoints from Aussie Cuisine
Australians love their meat, no wonder our cuisine was branded as “Meat and three veggies” which was quite representative in the early 1900s.
There wouldn’t be many houses without a BBQ, it is really part of our lifestyle.
We could argue that any meat from the BBQ can be regarded as a National Dish.

People around the world consume an average of 75 pounds (34kgs) of meat per person, per year, according to research by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. That includes pork, beef, poultry, and sheep meat. If it were all beef, that would be equivalent to approximately 300 quarter-pounders each year for everyone on Earth.
The high cost of meat means that people in developing countries end up eating very little of any kind of meat, for the most part. Cultural norms also play a role: In India, where the majority of the population is Hindu, vegetarianism is common.
