    How much boneless rib roast for 8 adults?

    Bought a 15lb rib roast. Only feeding between 6-8 people usually so I’m thinking I’ll cut it into a couple of smaller roasts and maybe a couple steaks. What size roasts should I cut?

    I've heard about a half pound per person in the past. A "serving" of steak is 3 oz or about the size of a deck of cards (which is less than half of a half-pound).

    I bet you could cut that monster into 3rds and be fine if there's some good sides around. But if you cut it in half, you just end up with leftovers for the next few days and don't have to worry about whether it's enough or not.

      Since it is boneless, cook the whole roast as is and then slice as you would any roast beef. 15# is plenty for eight hungry folks. Hope it goes well.

      It would depend on what side dishes you plan to serve but I usually do 10-12 oz of beef per person. I’ll serve a cheese and smoked sausage plate as a starter then have a starch and two veggies along with the meat at dinner.

        I recently did a 5.5 pounder for six adults and there was plenty. Even had a little left over. Cut that baby in half and you'll be fine.
