Stretching One Pork Roast: The Secret to Maximizing Flavor and Savings

Imagine being able to stretch your time, wallet, and energy by stretching your meat. It’s possible! Here’s our simple trick: feature the pork loin in multiple recipes throughout the week. You can also use pork shoulder if you prefer. Here’s how it works:

  • Start with a pork roast weighing around 5 1/2 pounds (exact measurements aren’t necessary).
  • Ask your friendly butcher to cut the pork into 2 equal pieces. They’ll be happy to do it for you, free of charge.
  • With your perfectly prepped pork, head to the grocery store, knowing that your weeknight dinners are sorted. Plus, you’ll have some extra dollars left in your wallet!
