We buy (or split with my folks) a side or quarter of beef. It averages about $2.50 a pound. While that is expensive for ground beef or roasts, we also get T Bones, sirloin, rib roast, rib eye steak, stew meat, ground chuck, rump and chuck roasts, arm of round and ox tail if we ask for it. So it evens out. And it's hormone free and fielded so natural grass fed.
Chicken I can still find whole for 99 cents a pound. Breasts alone are closer to $2.
I buy pork on sale quite a bit so we have variety. Fish I snap up at bargain prices as well. I love finding fish for 99 cents or $2 a pound.
I need to incorporate more turkey in our diet. Ground and breast. I need to start pricing it.
