The crockpot ideas sound good, especially since you can buy precut meats nowadays. I know that costco and most other major supermarkets, sell frozen packages precooked chicken already cut up and ready to go. They're sometimes even already flavored. I love buying frozen meatballs too, very useful. For the more pricey: precooked shrimp? Supermarkets also sell freshly roasted chicken for pretty cheap so that's another option.

I think the suggestion to teach him some good vegetarian basics is right on.  If he doesn't want to handle raw meat then that would be the simplest way around it.  And he can eat turkey bacon.  That's usually pre-cooked.  Wink  I'd arm him with some good potato dishes, pasta sauces, and info about cooking with beans and tortillas.  We ate a lot of pasta as poor college students with a kitchen.  Sweet potatoes with black bean chili (no meat in our recipe) was another favorite.   Can he cook eggs a bunch of different ways? Make a mean grilled cheese sandwich?

My fave is to put a 3lb roast into the crockpot, add 2 packs of brown gravy with 3c of water and cook on the lowest setting for 24 hours (I usually start it during dinner the night before). It shreds beautifuly and can be made into sandwiches the next day.

Using BBQ sauce and pork will get passable barbeque. With a small dollop of liquid smoke.

Something else is hamburger/sausage in a plastic tube. Leave it mostly frozen and cut with a good serrated knife, and it doesn't smell/feel gross and it cooks fine from frozen.

often if you keep an eye on the grocery flyers, those whole roasted chickens go on sale...we love to use them for making enchiladas...and i am sure that the meat could be used for making many different recipes

something else - if he's going to have buddies with him, they can buy some of those large packs of hamburger, stuff it into 1 pound packs (sandwich bags) and freeze 'em. The buddy can stuff and your kid can nuke to defrost and drop it into the pan. That way hae's not touching it and it's a lot less gross (raw hamburger disgusts me too).

hmm, interesting situation... i don't eat red meat, but i do cook it for my BF so i know how gross it can look.

a few suggestions:
-Omelettes with chopped up lunch meat in them (ham or even turkey)
-someone probably mentioned this, but there are precooked sliced meats either in the meat department or in the freezer section
-protein from other sources (beans, eggs, tofu)
-what about those "meal/skillet"-in-a-bag things?  they come usually with meat and veggies and some kind of starch (rice or pasta) all in a big frozen bag and you dump it in a skillet and kinda stir-fry it all together.  they can be pretty good, and have a lot of food for not too much money!

does he have a problem with frozen fish filets?  those tend not to look as gross... and there's plenty of breaded stuff in the frozen section, too.

i third/ fourth/ whatever the teaching him some vego recipes.
if he's sharehousing, i'm sure the others will cook him some meat sometimes, and for a young adult male i'd guess that getting all the fruit and veg youre supposed to is less likely to happen than getting the meat.
besides, will he buy lunch? he can just buy something with meat in it then.
and if he does get really, really meat-hungry you might find he overcomes his aversion by himself. no problem.

teach him to cook a risotto, because any ol' fridge scraps can go in it (with lots of cheese), and it's very filling.
when making burgers, replace the meat patty with a giant mushroom *drool* (i'm a meateater and prefer 'shroom-burgers any day). just cook it alongside as you would meat patties (fry, grill, bbq).
vegie curries are also very boy-filling. curry paste, onion, garlic, various (root) vegies, coconut milk. simmer till the veges are a good consistency (maybe 20min?).  serve with rice. the curry paste and coconut milk together should only be a couple of dollars.
