In the Kitchen: Home Chef Subscription: Seared Ribeye with Caprese Salad

Hi, Everyone!

In an effort to spend less time meal planning and more time reading, I decided to give Home Chef a try. It costs less than taking the whole family to a restaurant, and it seemed like a fun way to add some new recipes to my repertoire.

Tonight: Seared Ribeye with Caprese Salad and pesto-garlic bread

It looks so great when the food photographers make it, right? I’d give you a shot of the raw ingredients, but, um . . . raw meat isn’t that photogenic. You’ll have to trust me.

Anyway, the recipe was all, “serve this steak and tomatoes with carby, carby pesto baguettes.”

I ignored the recipe, saved the baguettes for the wedding soup I was making later in the week, and served this dish on some tasty greens instead.

YUM.

Is there a WRONG way to eat Caprese Salad?  NOPE.

If I make it again: I’m definitely a fan of picking out my own cuts of meat: Home Chef sent me pieces that were WAAAY more fatty than I prefer. I’d say I removed nearly half the mass of meat as I trimmed the fat. YMMV, of course.

Did my kids eat it: We didn’t share. I mean, Caprese Salad. Would you?  *grin*
