How To Buy Pork Loin & Save Money

Pork is one of the cheaper options when it comes to meat. I recommend buying local and/or grassfed as much as possible and getting to know the farmer that raises the pigs that you are buying for meat. 

 

Pork loins are those long thick pieces of meat you'll find in the meat section of your grocery if you're not buying from a farmer's market. 



 

 

When you are looking to use pork in a recipe for roasts or chops, this is the cheapest way to buy it. It's simple to cut up and package or freeze yourself and it lasts a lot longer than if you were to buy the items seperately. 

I found this out when at Sam's Club this past week with my Mom, she saw that I had put pork chops in our cart and questioned why I didn't just buy a loin. We looked at the price per lb and the amount of meat we'd get and it was the same price for one loin as it was for the 9 chops we would be getting. 

When we got it home and cut the loin up, we ended up with 2 roasts by cutting off each end and 8 chops. 



 

I'm not sure if this is how you're supposed to cut meat, but this is what we used and it worked for us. 

 

I hope you can use this tip and pass it on to friend's who are looking to save as well.
