Well, our first Blue Apron meal was a success: Sauteed Beef & Potato Latkes! While the prep time was much longer than expected, the end result was delicious. I also wish they would have listed the tools needed under the ingredients, since apparently I do not have a box grater.
Sauteed Beef: Pouch of tomato paste mixed with caramelized onions and thyme are what comprised the golden sauce you see. My husband and I will add a like curry or Tony Cachere to this next time to give it a spicy kick. It was a little bland for our Cajun taste buds.
Potato Latkes: 2 potatoes grated, 1/2 onion grated mixed with about 1 1/2 tbsp of matzo meal and an egg (already beaten) and then fried in a pan. Salt and pepper to taste and they are kind of like homemade hash browns. YUM!
Beets & Carrots: Coated with Olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme cooked in 475 degree oven for 18 minutes. I had never worked with a fresh whole beet, so I was excited about it until my hands were died pink, ha! Peel the skin off just like a potato.
