Cooking for 300
I am wondering if you could help me with quantities for a meal for 300. We are serving BBQ/grilled boneless chicken breasts, shredded beef sandwiches, potatoes and 2 salads. Can you tell me how many pounds of chicken breast and beef to get when 2 meats are offered. Should I get chuck roast or top round?
Thank you so much,
do a 60 40 split, chicken to beef, use a inside round for the beef slow rst it 25 min per pound 325
I would do 60 pounds of small breasts, 70 if larger, plus 100-120 pounds raw boneless beef. While I agree with Kevin for sliced beef, I would use boneless chuck for the shredded beef, you want a juicier meat for this dish. Once shredded, store or freeze in the sauce, it will absorb some, gaining both bulk and flavor.
Wedding reception menu for 300. Skinless chicken breast or cutlets, glazed carrots, wild rice, pasta salad, roll, and sweet tea. How many pounds of each needs to be prerpared. Which is better and cheaper, cutlets or breast. How many cutlets to serve per person?
You need 6 ounces cooked chicken per person (that is 7-8 ounces boneless skinless), cut is up to you and depends on your recipe. All the other items are covered at the plan for 100 tables, times 3.
