A question we often get is “How much meat do I need?” The starting rule of thumb is:
- Boneless Meat: 1/2 lb. per person for adults and 1/4 lb. per person for children.
- Bone-In Meat: 1 lb. person for adults and 1/2 lb. per person for children.
Then adjust for your situation. Are you feeding any seniors or teenagers? Do you want leftovers? Do you have any other main dish items?
Our Meat Calculator can help determine how much meat to buy.
