    meat

    Is the sentence correct?
    I don't like eating cooked meat as much as meat that has been fried.

    Re: meat

    No. Fried meat is one type of cooked meat.

    Re: meat

    If it has been fried, it's cooked.

    Edit: snap.

    Re: meat

    Thanks for this information.
    What if I express myself this way?
    I don't like eating steamed meat as much as meat that has been fried.

    Re: meat

    Yes, although it could be easily shortened to "I don't like eating steamed meat as much as fried meat", or (even shorter) "I prefer fried meat to steamed meat".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: meat

    Your original sentence would only work with raw meat to contrast with meat that has been cooked in any manner.
