This french dip sandwich was the second meal we had selected from the menu at Hello Fresh. And it was pretty decent, the way the recipe is on it’s own. Though again, next time I would definitely add Montreal steak spice to the meat for more flavour. But the buns were great and my husband put a bit of seasoning into the au jus which helped make the dish. Not sure we would choose this again if we used the delivery service, but we wouldn’t mind trying another recipe some time. Our son did enjoy his deconstructed version as well and in the end that’s all we can ask for ☺️
Been seeing these food delivery subscription sites all over the web and heard about them through friends and family. Decided to try Hello Fresh, as you get 50% off your first week. If you choose to continue, you’d get 3-4 meals picked by you, delivered weekly. For this promo we got the above Turkey Tortilla Pie, Honey and Herb-Crusted Pork with Roasted Broccoli and Potatoes as well as a French Dip Sandwich with Oven Fries.
It says that all these meals take 35mins to prepare and so far the tortilla pie was made in that time frame. But if you have kids constantly taking attention away, I can see how it could take a lot longer. My husband helped with the meal and keeping our son entertained, which made it a lot easier and quicker. The tortilla pie tasted fine, though there were no veggies. Making this on my own, I would definitely bulk this up with veggies. Being that we chose the 4 serving option, not quite sure why it called for a 9×13 baking dish. We got 6 servings out of it instead, though you could easily go to 8 smaller servings.
In the end, would I spend the weekly regular price (3 meals for $139.99/4 servings a week) they ask for the subscription? Probably not. Though I do appreciate that they pick out low or no sodium products as well as organic. But I could just plan these meals out myself and get the ingredients. For a once in a while option it’s all right though and I’ve skipped the next 2 months worth of meals for now.
