How much to buy

Cuts of Pork

Calculating cost per serving is a better measure of value and can be calculated with this formula:

Cost per serving = Cost per pound or kilogram / # of servings per pound or kilogram

How much to buy:

The amount of pork to buy will depend on the number of servings required and whether the meat is boneless or bone-in. A rule of thumb is to allow ¼ -1/3 lb (125 - 165 g) per person for boneless cuts, 1/3 -1/2 lb (165 - 250 g) for bone-in cuts.

Boneless Roasts 3-4 7-8
Bone-in Roasts 2-3 5-6
Boneless Chop/steaks, cubes, strips 3-4 7-8
Bone-in Chops/steaks 2-3 5-6
Ground Pork or Sausage 3-4 7-8
Back or Side Ribs Allow 1/2 to 1 rack per person  
Crown Roast or Rack of Pork 1-2 ribs/person
