A Little Meat Math

Do you ever find yourself struggling to figure out just how much meat to buy for a meal or dinner party?  Just follow the chart below:

Meat                                                       Per Person

Lean or Extra Lean Ground Meat              1/4 lb

Spareribs                                                  1 lb

Steaks - boneless tenderloin,
rib-eye, sirloin                                           1/4 lb

Steak - T-bone                                         6 oz

Chicken - boneless                                   4 oz

Chicken - bone-in                                     1/2 lb

To figure out how much meat you'll need for a party just multiply the amounts shown by the number of guests you expect.  Add a few extra servings to have enough for second servings or leftovers.
