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: Umami Burger with Miso-Marinated Beef
These burgers were really tasty. I changed a few things. I did not like the mayo packets that were included, so I substituted my Hellman’s Light for that. Also, if you put the mayo mix in the fridge while you wait, it became very liquidy. I’m not sure why. I just added a bit more mayo to thicken it up. Next time, I won’t put it in the fridge.
The sweet potato fries were very good. I overdid them a bit . . . burned some. But they were still tasty. Just not the burned bits.
Because of the burned fries, I whipped up favorite side dish of ours. Broccoli slaw! I usually have a bag of the slaw on hand. Throw it in a bowl with salt, celery seeds, a tiny bit of Splenda (or sugar), a splash or two of apple cider vinegar, and some of that delicious Hellman’s Light Mayo! Mix and serve. So easy and good.
If I make it again: I won’t put the mayo in the fridge after I mix it. I won’t burn the fries. Oh . . . and I’ll remember to put the cheese on the burgers. Oops!
Did my kids eat it: We made them regular burgers. They would probably like the miso burgers, though. They love the broccoli slaw.
