I LOVE when the big pork loins are on sale! I always have the meat counter cut it up for me so it's easier to handle. I usually have half of it cut into chops and the other half I make pulled pork with. The new flyer came out today for my grocery store... I should take a look! $1.49/lb. is a great price!

I have actually done that for catering - did 7 of them for a very large wedding, with my signature strawberry chorizo stuffing.

I use the centre because it is the most uniform in size. The smaller end becomes my chops and the larger end chopped for stews, sweet and sour, stir fries, etc.

Ms M, that price keeps getting better and better. We never have deals like that here!

I use the small end because it more resembles a roast, being round on one end. And I like my loin chops bigger and more uniform. The small end works out well cooking for one.

I just got back from the store with a standing rib roast. Been eyeing them all week as they are on sale.

4lb for $27, which is $5/lb off.

I vacuum packed and stuck it in the freezer for a later date.

Pork loin is on sale for 1.99 and tenderloins for 3.99 this week. They had a ham for .69 but they ran out of them and the next one up was 1.99 . I still have one in the freezer so I didn't get one. I did grab some of the tenderloins and 1/2 a whole loin. I like to roll them out and stuff them.

I like to roll them out and stuff them too.

My bargains today were romano pecorino for $19.99/kg (~$9.08/lb) and some wine we like for 29.99+tax for 4 litres, both red and white.

1 package of cubes
1 package of 4 chops w/pocket for stuffing
8 packages of 4 chops each (thin chops)

It roughly breaks down to .36 a serving for boneless pork loin. Add starch, veggie and/or salad and we are talking around $2.00 (+/-) a meal (per person/serving). I think thats a pretty good deal.
I do the same thing. I take a roast off the big end and make chops from the rest.

Costco has whole halibut for 5.99lb today. They are 10-13 lbs each
I also picked up a chunk Kirkland parmesan for 4 dollars and change a lb. It is pretty good and def worth the price.
