My data muse insisted I figure out how much I paid per pound of meat, how many potential meals there are and how much each of the meals cost before adding any other ingredients. She even suggested I start a series of posts tracking the meals we get from this freezer full of meat.
So, without further ado, here are the statistics:
- I paid $243.45 for 90.91 pounds of beef, chicken breasts and pork
- That equates to an average of $2.68 per pound
- I was able to make packages for approximately 52 meals
- That equates to $4.68 per meal
Meat packages include:
- Stew Meat - 3 packages
- Blade Steaks - 6 packages
- London Broil - 6 packages
- Top Sirloins - 5 packages
- Ground Sirloin - 2 packages
- Ground Round - 8 packages
- Chicken Breasts - 10 packages
- Pork Chops - 6 packages
- Pork Ribs - 4 packages
- Pork Loin Roasts - 2 packages
Some caveats to the process:
- These packages are set up for two people and possible leftovers. The leftovers generally become lunches for work.
- Hotel Man travels a lot for work. When he is gone I generally don't cook big meals for myself. Therefore, there will be weeks when I may not even open the freezer to take a meal out.
Will you join me over the next several months as I use up The Meat Buy?
