How Much Pork to Cook Per Person
How Much Pork to Cook Per Person

Making lunch for a crowd and not sure how much Ibérico pork to make? Whipping up a weeknight meal for the family? Cooking an intimate dinner for two and want the best cut?

We’re diving into how much and what cuts of fresh Ibérico to cook for every group size. Whether you've got 2 or 12 eaters, you’ll know exactly how many packs of Ibérico pork to order for any and every meal. 

How Much Pork to Cook Per Person

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you portion out your Ibérico cuts: 

  • The portions below assume you are also serving some kind of side along with the main meat. The recipes we recommend for each group include other ingredients like starches, legumes, or veggies to make it a complete meal.
  • If your eater count falls between the listed numbers, always round up. Skimping on food doesn’t look good on anyone. You can always save the leftovers. 
  • Though we’ve listed how much of each cut you need to feed the listed number of eaters, feel free to mix and match cuts, especially if you’re feeding a crowd. That way everyone can try a little bit of everything. 
  • Our estimates are based on 7-10 oz. per person for cuts without bones and 14-17 oz. for cuts with bones. If you have tons of hearty sides or loads of appetizers, you can lean on the smaller size portions.
