What You’re Getting:
Organic, sustainable, and local produce whenever possible.
Home Chef is in Chicago where I am so my box does not travel far and I am supporting local businesses!
Kick Back and Get Comfortable:
Subista was so kind to give me a gift certificate to Home Chef. Now I am addicted. Picky but addicted. I am choosy on which weeks I want to get a delivery. I also have to plan in advance not to go food shopping the weekend before (so I have to load up on fruit two weeks before).
The stars have aligned and we got a box…
This is a recipe review of
Brazilian Flat Iron Steak with Tomato Rice and Marinated Zucchini
Home Chef sends a recipe sheet so you can add to your Home Chef binder that you receive in your first shipment. The layout once vertical, has gone horizontal. The front page shows a Pinterest worthy picture and items that are provided in your shipment with a list of items you need from your kitchen.
The back side gives recipe instructions and pictures to follow. I kinda like the heads up section on the left as its more of if you don’t read recipes directions read this to save time!
Here are the items straight out of the box!
And here is another picture with the component bag opened…
Ok here I go with my drink of somewhat-choice (mother’s milk tea) and my trusty cutting board from last year’s PopSugar’s box as I prepped the components for the recipe.
I saved a tomato, cucumber and half of a lemon for later!
Marinating the zucchini.
Frying up the zucchini and making the Brazilian rice in my beloved ramen pot from my childhood that I would not give up!
Mmmmmm…. Marinated steak.
Check out that marbling!
Too lazy to get another pan to clean, I make some room in the pan for the steak!
Flip them over like a meaty flapjack… or something.
I used my CB2 appetizer bowl to mold the rice into a pyramid shape.
The steak was awesome. I loved the Brazilian rice and I really need to venture into making rice with more than chicken stock if I am being fancy. I love zucchini which is a good thing if I am lucky and my zucchini starts to grow in my garden. My zucchini seedling is pretty pissed off after transplant but I think its getting over it and moving on to grow. I digress.
Everything was very yummy and I highly recommend you picking this recipe when it is an option!
