I think that n would need to be a lot larger than the number of people which fit in your house or a restaurant for the results not to be swamped by random noise.

ETA: A way to get more useful data from the same number of people would be asking each person to taste both kinds of meat (without telling them which is which, of course), and asking them which one tastes better.
