Hey there!

We're off and running with the start of another week.  Last week I talked about Hello Fresh, a food delivery service that I subscribed to, which satisfied my curiosity with all these subscription box services out there.  I showed you the first recipe I made, Pineapple Pork Chops with Snap Peas and Jasmine Rice which we really enjoyed and plan to make again, possibly with chicken this time!  (You can read more about Hello Fresh's packaging here.)

Today I want to show you my favorite meal of the bunch, Lean Green Steak Machine with a Mint Chive Dressing and Veggie Succotash.  This one just screams fresh and seasonal...a fantastic alfresco meal!  Plus it's beef, and you know I love a good steak!

Hello Fresh described this as "decadent, mouthwatering juiciness of a nice piece of beef, but with seasonal veggies to balance it out and an herb pesto to keep things breezy—just the thing to eat on the patio".  I have to agree with this description wholeheartedly.

Again, with this meal you get an easy to follow recipe instruction card with step by step pictures to help you along.  This was really easy to pull together and took about 30 minutes to cook plus prep time.  This is the perfect dish for a weeknight meal.

Let's talk about flavor.  The steak came out nice and juicy.  We cooked to a medium doneness.  The steak was topped with a mint and chive dressing that gave the meat really good flavor.  The veggie succotash was crisp, and I love that it used seasonal fresh veggies.  Great meal!  Make sure to try this one, it's a summer must have!

I have one more "Hello Fresh" dish to share with you, and will wrap up my review on this service as well with my overall thoughts.

Enjoy!




Lean Green Steak Machine with a Mint Chive Dressing and Veggie Succotash

serves 2


3/4 lb sirloin steak
1 red onion
4 oz peas (1/2 cup)
1 zucchini
6 oz asparagus 
1 1/2 tsp chives, minced, divided
1 1/2 tsp mint, chopped, divided
1 lemon
4 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper

Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Cut zucchini into ½-inch cubes. Trim woody bottoms from asparagus, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Zest lemon until you have ½ tsp zest, then cut into halves. Mince half the chives. Pick half the mint leaves from stems and finely chop. TIP: Use the remaining herbs as a garnish, if desired.

In a small bowl, combine minced chives, chopped mint, a squeeze of lemon, a large drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Adjust to taste with more lemon, salt, and pepper.

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Toss in zucchini and cook until lightly browned and softened, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat.

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in another large pan over medium-high heat. Pat steak dry with a paper towel, then season all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook to desired doneness, 4-7 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest.

Add peas and asparagus to pan with succotash. Return pan to stove over medium-high heat. Cook, tossing, until asparagus is tender, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove pan from heat and stir in a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of lemon zest.

Thinly slice steak against the grain. Divide succotash between plates and top with steak. Drizzle with herb dressing. Garnish with remaining mint leaves and chives, if desired.
