The Best Cheap Cuts of Meat
5. Bone-in Pork Chops
These come in at around $5 per pound and they’re downright delicious. For a healthy choice, opt for “pork rib chops,” which only have the loin attached to the bone and are an appropriate serving size, and skip “pork loin chops,” which also have the tenderloin attached. (You’ll be able to tell a pork loin chop by the T-shaped bone that holds the loin and tenderloin in place. The rib chop has only the rib bone.) Choosing these will ensure that you’re getting about 3 to 4 ounces of meat per person.
