Pulled Beef/Pepper Stout Beef Weight Loss After Cooking


Roughly how much weight loss can expect in a beef chuck roast used for pulled beef or pepper stout beef after cooking? That is, if I start with a 4 lb raw chuck roast, roughly how much cooked meat will I end up with (ball park)? 3 lbs cooked meat or so?

    I have cooked this many times.  I never gave much thought to it, but I don't believe I had a 25% loss in meat.

    Well if chuck is 80/20, there would be 20% fat in it.  I imagine you would lose some water too, so I would guess somwhere around 15-20%?  Never measured it though.
  • Damn, I read this as I could eat the recipe and lose weight by eating it after I cooked it.
