Works out on average to $3.66 per meal for the meat in a meal for a family of 5
Here's the breakdown.
2-beef roast-2.5 lbs each
4-1.25lbs of 90/10 ground beef
6-2lb bags of boneless skinless chicken breast
5-2lb bags of boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
2-2 pound pork roast
3-bags of 6 each pork chops
This is my first time doing this and I think that with left overs I can get almost the whole month out of these meats and I still have over $300 left in my budget for everything else. Pretty happy with myself right now! Before, we were spending about $600-$800 a month on food.
