Blue Apron Seared Steaks


Seared Steaks & Cheesy Mashed Sweet Potatoes:


Ingredients: 2 steaks, 2 sweet potatoes, garlic, light brown sugar, cremini mushrooms, 1 sweet onion, 2 oz. white cheddar cheese and 1 tbsp sherry vinegar


I made a few changes with the first eliminating the brown sugar. I, also, didn’t use the cheddar cheese instead using 2 measured pats of butter (setting the cheese aside to use for lunch). I did put the rest of the ingredients, except for the steaks and sweet potato, also adding a chopped green pepper and some cherry tomatoes, in a microwave pan, microwaving it for 4 minutes.


The major change I made was making it all, using only 1 sweet potato, like one meal instead of two. Raw the steaks came as 12 ounces and after making them on the Foreman’s grill, medium rare, they weighed in at a little over 8 ounces.


Adding a salad and a package of defrosted Mango cubes for dessert it was a good and satisfying meal but the price per meal was doubled.


Next, probably Saturday, when I will also be getting my second shipment, I will make the third recipe from the first: Miso Chicken Ramen.


This was definitely a good, tasty filling meal, but remember it was 2 portions combined to make 1.
