  • Chuck Roast - 2 - I would crockpot cook it and have a dinner, then use the leftovers to make BBQ beef sandwiches.
    Ground Chuck - 10 - Spaghetti, burgers, goolash, mini meatloves using all 10 pounds
    Pork Chops - 2 - Baked or grilled
    Sirloin Steak - 3 - Grilled, beef & brocoli, pepper steak
    Country Ribs - 2 - (if bone in, 3 if boneless and trimmed of fat) - BBQ in the crock pot
    Chicken Breast - 3 - chicken nuggets, stirfry and fried chicken
    Leg Quarters - 5 - Grilled, baked and fried
    Bacon - 3 - BLTs, spanish rice, breakfast for dinner
    Sausage - 3 - Mix with scrambled eggs, biscuts & gravy, with pancakes
    Cube Steak - 3 - Chicken fried steak (don't know what else to do with them, I don't buy them)
    Kabobs - 3 - grilled, make chili, cook on low in crockpot for taco filing

    So, 39 or 40 meals.

  • I think the price sounds good. Get it then tell us how many meals you squeezed out of it. There's ALOT there to work with!

  • 6months at least on just that. If I added in meatless meals I could get a year or more for our family of 3.
