I wonder whether you could feed a family of 4 on $5 and include any beef other than maybe neckbones?

I would make a hearty bean and rice dish like Hoppin' John or Red Beans and Rice with a Ham Hock for flavor and bits of meat throughout. Or a hearty Split Pea Soup, and a country, whole-grain bread.

Sure, crossrib steak is super cheap (0.99c/lb) 4oz/person or 8oz/person is a fine cut if you include rice/stir fry/etc

Yep, I immediately thought of Hoppin John but even just rice, beans, and onions would make a good meal. A few pieces of bacon would be nice.
