Home Chef The Easy Way To A Gourmet Homecooked Meal!
You need to sit down to read this post. Why, because I actually cooked the food in this post. Most of you know I do not cook. Hubby does it, he likes to do it, and I don’t argue! Well he got a break twice this last week because Home Chef sent me the fresh ingredients and the chef-designed recipes. Seriously it was so easy I did not mind at all. Both of the recipes took less than 45 minutes from start to table. Oh yeah they are delicious!
You can recognize the box and know you need to take care of it right away. Guess what, shipping is free, can’t beat free!
Recipes are right on the top so they do not get misplaced. Perfectly portioned ingredients for your meals are kept fresh in an insulated, recyclable box until you’re home.
Everything for each meal is in its own plastic bag, except for the meat/fish, that is separate to not contaminate the other items. These are all fresh ingredients onions, potato, mushrooms, cheese plus the exactly quantity of the other items you will need for the Steak Marsala with Parmesan Potatoes recipe. I have to admit I lost, know clue where, the base for the gravy topping so I put it on the side.
The 1 potato was plenty for both of us. The recipe has me add some off the green part of the onion, and the parmesan cheese. These came out awesome!!
The mushrooms were quartered and put into the pan that I browned the steak in. After adding all the ingredients these came out like nothing we have tasted before and we fell in love!
So again I started with all the above included in my box…
And ended with this. So what do you think? Easy enough! This meal took 45 minutes start to table and was absolutely delicious! Remember I do not normally cook so I am slower than most. This is something you would get from a very nice expensive restaurant! We were both stuffed and still had lots of potatoes and mushrooms left for another day’s dinner.
The recipes have very clear instructions with pictures to help. Like I said many times before I am not a cook and they made me feel like a great cook the way everything is all together and easy to make. They tell you what pans you need and if you might need some other items, salt, pepper, and olive oil mainly. It is all stuff most people have available.
They include a binder to keep all the recipes in, so you can make them on your own.
Next up is the Lemon Pepper Steelhead Trout recipe.
Desiree even helped me with this one. She would not touch the fish but she helped with other things.
Desiree followed the recipe to fix the special dressing for putting in the salad and a little on the trout.
It told us how to cut up the olives that were in the small container. We also cut up the basil.
So Desiree mixed what it told her while I cooked the fish.
From boiling the pearl couscous to adding the ingredients to come up with the final side dish we worked together.
The colors came out weird from my picture but the meal was a huge hit. My husband loves fish and trout is one of his favorites. He said it was better than he has ever gotten in a restaurant. This took me less than 30 minutes from start to table. I would never had been able to do this without Home Chef!
So what do you think. Check out the video a local news station did on comparing prices of Home Chef to regular grocery shopping.
