HelloFresh Review: Italian Beef Melts

8/10

My final HelloFresh kit this week was Italian Beef Melts with Onion, Green Pepper, Mozarella & Roasted Potato Wedges. Once again, I was impressed at how tasty this dish was. HelloFresh has given me a new appreciation for how good simple American cuisine can be.

To make the sandwiches, you slice and sautée the onions and peppers, you cook the ground beef with Italian seasoning and beef base and then mix them together. The kit has you make garlic aioli by mixing mayo with garlic powder and garlic butter by mixing your own butter with that same garlic powder. Instead of the garlic powder, I minced some of my own garlic cloves and used that. The buns are toasted with the garlic butter and mozzarella cheese, you spread the mayo and then add the beef filling. They were filling and very tasty.

The side dish was HelloFresh ubiquitous oven baked potatoes – they were plain this time, but I added some Italian seasoning to make them tastier. I feel, however, that HelloFresh should have chosen a different vegetable. This dish was very carb heavy to begin with and very light in vegetables. Maybe zucchini chips would have been a better choice? I did like the potatoes, however.

Kit for four servings

I made this dish five days after receiving it and everything was still fresh.
