Cutting Meat

We often get asked what weight of meat per person to order – in other words how much meat is needed for a certain number of people, so we have created this easy little guide.

Generally you would allow half a pound per person (225g) of boneless meat or three quarters of a pound (340g) per person of bone in meat.  To see exactly how much you need though please refer to the table below:

Boneless Meat Number of People Bone in meat
1lb / 0.45kg 2 – 3
2lb / 0.91kg 4 – 5 3lb / 1.36kg
3lb / 1.36kg 6 – 7 4lb / 1.82kg
