First up in this upcoming food adventure is the first Blue Apron box! (note that this will be slightly different from the way that I usually write up the recipes I use. It will mostly be pictures).
If you’re unfamiliar with Blue Apron it is a subscription box that sends you ingredients for weekly meals. There are 3 plans that you can get: The Classic, Vegetarian and Family (4 people) and if you can, they also have wine pairings for your meal!
For two meals for two people, the overall cost (including shipping) is $51.95. That’s a lot for me to dish out every week honestly but you do get $30 for your first box when you sign up!
Blue Apron Meal #1 is….
Seared Steaks & Mashed Potatoes (with Steak Sauce & Roasted Carrots)
- 2 steaks
- 2 cloves garlic
- .5 lb russet potatoes
- 2 scallions
- 4 carrots
- 2 oz. cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp molasses
- 1 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp soy glaze
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
So the great thing about this is that it all comes measured out for you and with step by step instructions.
- Prepare the ingredients and start the steak sauce
- Roast the carrots
- Cook & mash the potatoes – I didn’t take a picture of the mashed potatoes but you’ll see them at the end
- Cook the steaks
- Slice steak and plate
This meal was seriously delicious and the homemade steak sauce was amazing. I also never knew how easy it was to make mashed potatoes!
