Sometimes the hardest part of making a delicious gourmet meal is finding all the ingredients you need. I always find tasty recipes online, but there are always one or two things I'm missing--a spice, a certain herb--and who wants to drive all the way to the grocery store with four kids to pick up one or two things? Thankfully, Home Chef makes it easy to create delicious recipes without any hassle at all. This fantastic service hand picks yummy recipes that meet your specifications, and delivers all the ingredients right to your door. If you prefer spending your Valentine's Day at home with that special someone, one of these meals is the perfect way to celebrate.
I got to try out the Home Chef subscription and it was an amazing process from start to finish. First, when you sign up, you can choose certain preferences. If you're a vegetarian or happen to be allergic to shellfish, you won't have to worry about getting items you won't eat. Once the box arrives, you'll be in for a real treat. Absolutely everything you need is included, from the meats to the condiments. I was amazed by how fresh and beautiful their produce was. There were succulent veggies and fresh meat and poultry, all delivered in a big box to my door. The box is packed with dry ice to ensure your food arrives in pristine condition.
There were ingredients for two recipes in my box. This was enough for two complete meals for two people. One of the recipes was Sirloin Steak with Brown Butter Bordelaise and the other was the Pork Chop Chateaubriand. They both come with all the seasonings you'll need, and are a great choice for date night. Each recipe only takes about thirty minutes from start to finish. They turned out fantastic. The meat practically melts in my mouth, and each one was a very unique meal for me.
In addition to the meals I tried out, Home Chef has a special meal just for Valentine's Day. Here is a little bit about it:
Love is a many splendored thing, but splendor ain't got nothing on some steak. Specifically, the tender filet mignon, a cut of beef that melts in your mouth. (And will melt your valentine's heart.) The filet gets an assist from a rich, buttery demi-glace sauce that'll have you kissing your plate clean. Rounding out this lovely lover's meal is a delectable Gouda gratin and hearty green beans. Serve this to your special someone, and have a wonderful, romantic Valentine's Day.
