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 exactly the same and vacuum seal the meat. I always end up with a pack of "cubes" that I use for stir fry.
I do this when I see the loin for under $2 per pound. Beats the heck out of $5 per pound for already cut, boneless chops!
