Pork loin cost

A local grocery store, famous for the great meat it has, has whole, boneless pork loins (cut and wrapped for free) for $1.79 a pound.

Pork is a "new" meat for me since hubby never liked it until now. Is that a good price???

Miss Angie...

That is a fairly common "advertised" price for a whole boneless loin in my area. I don't recall seeing it any cheaper. So I would say it is a pretty good price.

There is only one Quality worse than Hardness of Heart, and that is Softness of Head.

That's a very good price for our area as well. I buy them cryovac packed and cut them into chops and roasts.

Yummm...cut them into chops is a great idea! I'm really "pork" uneducated. Hubby likes bacon but not much else that comes from the pig!

Wow, Angie. That's a great price. I'd cut it into a few chops, a small roast and then cut the "frags" into chunks for stir-fry. You can get a lot out of a great big loin...and at that price, you can eat like royalty.

When it's marked down like that I by 3 or 4 and pop them in the freezer. It's one of the finest cuts of meat you can buy.

I have a few different ways of cooking loin that I never get tired of.

Yep,I would go for it just be sure to not over cook it. medium at the most a little bit of pink in the meat is what you want.

That price would be fairly cheap here in west Chiacgo. Even at Sam's Club it ranges from $2.00 and up per pound. At the grocery chains it can be rediculaous. I saw boneless chicken for $5.00 a pound not long ago.
