My daughter really likes pork, but she is picky about how it is prepared.
We bought a "half" pork loin that was almost 6.5 lbs.
At $1.69 a pound, which is a pretty good price for my area.
Of course with just three people, I don't need to cook 6+ pounds of pork at once.
I looked at my calendar, my upcoming menu ideas and what I had on hand to try to help me determine the best way to divide this up.
I decided to go with this arrangement.
1 largish roast -- I can use for a guest night or I can cook it and then shred the leftovers.
4 thick boneless "pork chops"
enough pork cubes for a stir fry recipe I want to try
Of course since none of these are on this week's menu, I wanted to go ahead and freeze the meat.
I used my food saver to seal them. Ziplock bags would work, too.
(My food saver is as old as the hills. I tried to remember exactly what year I bought it and can't. I do know I've had it for 10+ years though.)
