    Go to the bottom of the page for the Donation Meal Instructions! 

     

    Prime Rib Meal

    Prime Rib – We recommend removing the prime rib from the fridge up to a half hour before cooking. The goal is to have the meat reach room temperature before cooking it. Once the meat has reached near room temperature, remove the plastic wrap. place in a large pan with about a half inch of water (or beef stock). Wrap the entire dish in aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place in the oven until you reach your desired internal temperature. We recommend about 130-135 degrees for medium rare! After the meat has reached your desired internal temperature, let it rest for 10 - 15 minutes for best results.

    For a small Prime Rib, please allow up to 2.5 hours for the entire process.

    For a large Prime Rib, please allow up to 3.5 hours for the entire process.

    Mac & Cheese – Place in a saucepan, bring stove to medium heat. Add butter and milk and stir until you reach your desired consistency. Continue to stir occasionally until you reach your ideal temperature (5-10 minutes).

    Mashed Potatoes – Place in a saucepan over medium heat. Add milk and butter until you reach your desired consistency. Continue to stir occasionally until you reach your ideal temperature (5-10 minutes).

    Gravy – Place in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally and pull off heat once you reach you desired temperature (3-6 minutes)

    Sweet Potatoes – Place in a saucepan over medium heat. If you desire creamier consistency you can add a small amount of butter and stir. Continue to stir occasionally until you reach your ideal temperature (5-10 minutes).

    Corncake – The corncake is completely fine to eat at room temperature, but if you to prefer to have it warmed up you can put it in the oven at 300 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

     

    Donation Meal Kits

    Each meal kit comes with:

    • 1lb of turkey

    Leave Mashed Potatoes in the 16 oz microwaveable safe container.  Remove lid and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, stir after 1.5 minutes and continue.  Butter can be added for additional creaminess
