I have a 3 lb bone in pork roast. Will it feed 5 people?

I should think so. What are you planning to serve with it?

I agree with Chef June. I usually calculate 1/2 pound per person even counting the bone. The bone will also add more flavor.

Roasted potatoes, broccoli salad, rolls, dessert (of course!) thank you so much for your reply!

Yes, unless any of the diners are teenage boys. ;^)

I would have to rethink that then, wouldn't, I!

If it's a pork shoulder, I usually calculate that the cooked meat will end up being about half of the total weight, or perhaps a bit less (and even less if you bought it with the skin attached). So each person would easily get a 4- to 5-oz serving - with your side dishes and everything else you serve, it should be fine.

Thank you all! I had plenty of meat and even had leftovers.
