I am head over heels in love with Hello Fresh
Recently I was sent a box to try out as a thank you for attending the Hello Fresh Media Event last month. As you may remember I was so impressed with the high quality food, awesome vendors and employees. I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself on my home turf to see if it was just as easy as planned.
The box was really big. It was the meat box and it came with 3 meals for four people. One steak, one chicken and a vegetarian style meal.
I went for the steak first because I knew it would take the least time. All of the items were well packaged so even when I got home extra late from work all of the items were still very cold because of the insulation. The meats were packaged separately from the other ingredients of the meal.
I unpackaged half of the box since the kids already ate by grandma. The recipe was fairly easy but it required a lot of chopping, mincing and ribbon-ing of vegetables. For the first time ever I used fresh ginger as a spice! It was a bit of a learning curve but I figured it out.
The recipe is pretty straight forward and easy to follow. Once I was finished making vegetable ribbons with my peeler I was ready to marinate the meat. Even though they required a 10 minute marination, I let it sit for 20 (and I’m glad I did!). The meat was super flavorful!
In traditional Steak Bibimbap usually you have the veggies in their own separate corners, the zucchini, carrots and mushrooms are all in their own spaces on the plate. In my case I put them all together and piled them on. We passed on the mushrooms however because hubby is not a fan.
One I put the vegetables as a base, I layered the seared steak on top then finished it off with the picked scallions which was by far my favorite part of the dish! Something about the contrasting taste of the scallions on top made the entire meal delish!
I cooked the rice of the side and my hubby was so happy with the meal he begged for it again the next day and he got it!
The instructions were easy to follow and the only thing that I was responsible for was a little bit of sugar and salt. Everything else was perfectly packaged for me from the soy sauce, to the veggies, to the exact amount of fresh garlic cloves and ginger. The ease of not having to look for ingredients makes the box worth it.
