Cooking Lessons at Home, via Home Chef

This is my second post on how we are using Home Chef as in-home cooking lessons.  You can see part one here, for a detailed description of how it works, and our thoughts on receiving our first delivery.

The second meal we received was Flat Iron Steak with Bleu Cheese Butter, with green beans and roasted fingerling potatoes.  My 10 year old daughter actually made this one by herself, and my 8 year old son did the 3rd meal by himself.  This was rated as an 'easy' recipe, and was seriously amazing.  I'm not a huge steak lover normally, but it was super tasty.  My husband does love steak, and told her it was delicious, and he would be happy to eat it again anytime!

The meat comes vacuum sealed, and the rest of the ingredients are in a pouch, clearly labeled with the recipe name on it.  Olive oil, salt, and pepper are the only ingredients you need to use out of your pantry.  There were fresh herbs in this recipe, and they were really fresh looking also.  The kids love the 'notes from the chef' and full color photos on the recipe instructions.

The kids are enjoying the independence in the kitchen, and we have been thoroughly impressed with the cooking techniques, and quality of food they've produced.  The Home Chef box delivery to your house contains all of the necessary ingredients, and a great tutorial.  The normal price is just under $10/person a meal.  We have all agreed that the portions are very generous, definitely 'restaurant sized'.   If you use my link you will get $30 off of your first delivery (and we get some credit to use for more deliveries also, in the interest of full disclosure!)  Let me know if you have any questions, or comments if you've tried Home Chef!
