Crab Cakes with Broccoli and Sweet Red Peppers – $15
This meal-delivery service uses real lump crab meat instead of imitation crab meat. The price of crab meat is high, but at $15, they give you two portions. They are cooled well with a slight crunch on the outside and proper seasoning inside.
Tuscan Style Stuffed Chicken Breast with Rice Pilaf – $15
The chicken breasts with rice pilaf have spinach, red peppers, mozzarella cheese, and walnuts. The portion size is larger than what you get from other suppliers.
Mongolian Pork Stir-Fry – $15
The pork stir fry is a part of its international cuisine and is marinated with sauce. The vegetables add crunch and textural variety. The rice was cooked well, almost al-dente. Rice gets soggy when you are reheating it.
Oven-Roasted Beef Loin with Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes – $15
This is an oven-braised beef shoulder. The meat is tender and has sherry reduction sauce paired with mushrooms. The Roasted Sweet Potatoes are equally good, and once again, we would have liked to see a green vegetable side to create a balanced meal.
Roasted Turkey with Homestyle Gravy – $15
The meal doesn’t skimp on ingredients. The turkey used in the roasted turkey with homestyle gravy is from a turkey breast. The cranberries lack flavor and fall flat. The gravy isn’t seasoned well. Only the potatoes shone in the recipe. There are no green vegetables to make this a balanced meal.
Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan – $15
The baked chicken parmesan avoids being roasted in oil, and that’s a good first step. However, there’s too much-breaded crust in it that gluten-intolerants won’t love. There’s sauce in it that doesn’t feel very good. The cheese looks half-burnt too. The penne was fine, but the sauce itself fell flat and took along the penne with it.
Pesto Shrimp – $15
The Pesto shrimp retained its texture upon reheating. The sauce tasted more like buttery scampi than real pesto. The baby carrots aren’t part of the actual recipe. It should have paired well with a side of either Orzo or pasta.
Roasted Chicken Breast in Sweet Marsala Sauce – $15
The roasted chicken breast in this sweet marsala sauce was good, but the sauce was watered down way beyond redemption. It tasted flavorless. The company used canned mushrooms instead of using real mushrooms. Again there are no vegetable sides to make it a balanced meal.
Philly Cheesesteak Pasta
The Philly Cheesesteak Pasta has no identity of its own and looks like their chicken marsala meal. Some companies give you alternate foods, but you get the same recipe with a new name here.
Instead of loading up on chicken dinners, the company should have spent time and money on a beef dish or alternate protein. It’s poor management that shows they don’t really care about customers.
