Cutting up a boneless pork loin roast
Pork loin roast was on sale for 1.99/lb. today and whenever protein goes on sale below 2.00/lb. I tend to buy it. So I bought a really big one (they were all big) intending to cut it in half and put it in the freezer. But with just me eating it, even half the roast is very big. Would it be better to cut it into thirds and freeze and cook each one individually, or cut in half, make the roast and freeze the leftover cooked meat. It's a 5 lb. roast. Thirds would be 1.7 lbs each, half would be 2.5 lbs. By "better" I mean better for the edibility/moistness of the meat. I tend to use leftover pork loin roast for sandwiches or cut up for soups and stews.
