We make a pot roast lunch for 60-80 people at the Lamb Center every 3rd Tuesday. The Lamb Center is a day shelter for homeless men and women in Fairfax. We will need TEN Pot Roasts (recipe below) for their guests!
You can help in one of three ways:
1) Assemble the pot roast, including placing the meat, carrots, potatoes, and dry onion soup into the cooking bag. Deliver to CPC by 8:30am on the 3rd Tuesday so we can cook it in the church ovens. Or, make it two days before and bring it to church with you on Sunday (but do not add the Coke; we'll add it right before we cook it).
2) Prepare and cook that morning; then bring to CPC hot and ready to go by 10:00am.
3) Prepare, cook, and freeze. Bring to church building and put in the kitchen freezer. We will thaw and re-heat the following month.
Pot Roast and Veggie Recipe
3-4 lb. pot roast (rump roast is the best option because it's leaner, less fat)
2 pkg. Lipton onion soup mix
2 small bags of red potatoes
2 small bags of baby carrots
1 12 oz. can Coke "classic"
1 Cooking bag
1 Heavy duty aluminum casserole pan
Put roast in cooking bag. Sprinkle with onion soup mix, add the Coke and veggies. Place bag and contents in a heavy duty aluminum casserole pan. Close bag and then cut small hole in bag. Cook for 3 hours at 350 degrees. OR bring to CPC by 8:30am on the third Tuesday (you could even bring it to church with you on Sunday); we will cook it for you!
MANY thanks!! This has been a HUGE hit at the Lamb Center as they most often get pasta dishes!!
