I like the grass, I like the dew, I make a sound that sounds like you,

I'm the horned god of the east, Though not one that upsets a priest,

It's not too rare if I am blue, Otherwise too tough to chew,

A mighty thundering meat beast, I'd rather not be at the feast...

Are you refering to

a cow?

I like the grass, I like the dew, I make a sound that sounds like you,

Mooh! .. and obviously cows like grass

I'm the horned god of the east, Though not one that upsets a priest,

I guess there are lots of cows in the east? Dont knot about this one tho..
Thanks to ROAL / Inazuma for reminding me of the religious aspect of the cow in India
Also thanks to the OP for hinting towards the Horned God

It's not too rare if I am blue, Otherwise too tough to chew,

refering to Cordon Bleu maybe?
Thanks to Inazuma for the hint!
A 'blue' steak is basically a raw steak, much less cooked than rare.

A mighty thundering meat beast, I'd rather not be at the feast...

Not sure about this one too

Feel free to edit / suggest something if you know more than me ;)

    $\begingroup$ Also 'I'm the horned god of the east' = Hindus worship cows, and I'm guessing though they don't upset priests in Christianity $\endgroup$ – Inazuma Jun 9 '16 at 12:06

    $\begingroup$ The last line might just be that a cow doesn't want to be eaten (haha) $\endgroup$ – Inazuma Jun 9 '16 at 12:07

    $\begingroup$ Try googling "The horned god" if you want to flesh it out a bit. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 9 '16 at 12:23

    $\begingroup$ @radhato I don't mind. Go nuts. You got everything pretty much covered anyway. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 9 '16 at 12:29

Are you

the moon?

I like the grass, I like the dew, I make a sound that sounds like you,

Moon sounds a little like "moo", which is a child's term for a cow.

I'm the horned god of the east, Though not one that upsets a priest,

A crescent moon has horns, and rises in the east. The moon was formerly worshipped as a god.

It's not too rare if I am blue, Otherwise too tough to chew,

An event that happens once in a blue moon is a rare event. Moon rock is too tough to chew.

A mighty thundering meat beast, I'd rather not be at the feast...

I don't know about this.

Are you a

Deer or a stag?
Deer graze on grass in the early hours when dew is on the ground
Horned God in the east may refer to the Nepali legend of Pashupati, basically Shiva hiding out in deer form away from the missus.
I must confess I have no way to tie a deer to the color blue, nor tough to chew (venison jerky doesn't seem like a likely tie-in)
Deer or venison meat is eaten by many.
