What I'd be concerned about with feeding more muscle meats is that cats need a certain % of organ and bone in their food or else it can cause a diet imbalance. If you were looking to save $$ with feeding raw, what I've found is to look for the 'cheaper' meats in the aisle- maybe they're on sale because their expiry date is coming up (which is fine if you quickly make + freeze the foods), chicken cuts on-the-bone are cheaper than off-the-bone or breasts. Hearts are cheaper than usual meat cuts, and can be used as "meat" in your recipe, too
I don't have much experience with homemade raw myself- I only just started kitty on TC Feline due to food allergies- but a lot of pet stores around here also carry large patty-type frozen raw which may also be an option? With buying in bulk the cost looks to be about the same/even a little cheaper.
