How to Measure Four Ounces of Meat Using a Cup

Save

Many recipes, including quarter-pound burgers and individual dinner portions, include 4 oz. of meat as one of the ingredients. Unlike liquid ingredients, meat is measured by weight, not volume. Four ounces of meat can be 1/8 of a cup or a full cup, depending on the meat, but they are all 4 oz. servings. Use a cup as a vessel on your food scale to get an accurate measure of meat for your recipe.

Things You'll Need

  • Food scale
  • Place a food scale on a flat surface. Turn the knob at the top of the scale until the needle points to zero on the dial. This is called zeroing out the scale.

  • Place the empty cup onto the food scale platform. Zero out the scale again. This ensures that you will weigh only the contents of the cup, not the cup itself.

  • Place meat into the cup, bit by bit, until the needle measures exactly 4 oz. Remove the 4 oz. portion of meat and add it to your recipe.

  • Remove the cup from the scale and zero out the scale again, so it measures accurately the next time you use it.
