I hate worrying about having enough food for a large group, or even a small dinner party. The worst is when it is a roast. Have you struggled with How much meat to buy per person? Quite a few of the recipes here at Sweet Basil involve slow cooking a roast so here is a simple way to know how many pounds you need to buy to feed everyone. I generally say 1/4-1/2 pound per person just to be safe, but this is supposed to be the actual amount.
Type of meat and oz per person.
Chuck Arm (boneless) — 3.0 oz
Chuck Top Blade (boneless) —3.0
Cross Rib (bone-in)— 2.0
Bottom Round —3.0
Rump (bone-in) —2.0
Rump (boneless) —3.0
