How much meat do I need to buy?

We get this question often, and wanted to offer you some guidelines for purchasing and menu planning.

We know that the amount of meat someone eats will vary by age, gender and personal preference, so we've included a range of sizes. Keep in mind that these are estimates only, and in general, we say err on the side of cooking too much: you can't go wrong with having some leftovers around!

Pounds listed in the table below are per person.
