As I mentioned in the last post, I recently signed up for Forage, a meal delivery service aimed at providing quality pre-prepared ingredients for 20-minute restaurant-quality meals.
For each delivery, you’re required to pick out four servings worth of meals, so this is the second meal of the first week.
A recipe card with a pretty picture of the end product lays out all the instructions.
Ingredients labeled and pre-prepared
Just like pho night, a meeting kept me out of the house until after 8pm. Once I got home, it was great not having to come up with a plan or figure out what to make with what was available or not available in the fridge.
Aside from a missing lemon this time, ingredients for the recipes are on the label and nicely packed.
This recipe was even less involved than the pho recipe. I only had to deal with the oven and one saute pan. I chopped a few things and let the oven and stove do the rest of the work!
Fresca helped by keeping an eye on the cutting board. You know, in case anything fell off and needed tending to.
The Good – It took about 25 minutes. I’m beginning to think that all of these 20 minute meals will take me a few minutes longer. It was tasty, and I’m glad I got to use ingredients that I might not have otherwise bought. I can now say I’ve cooked rabbit at home, even though it was technically cured and cooked elsewhere; I merely reheated it. It was easy, and it was good. So far, the portion sizes have been just right also!
The Bad – The cured rabbit was a little on the salty side. It was a good thing I missed the additional salt in the recipe because there was plenty to go with the rest of the meal. Also had I known ahead of time, I would have taken the shallot and garlic out of the bag and out of the fridge earlier. By keeping them in the fridge, they were much harder to peel.
Again, the good outweighs the bad. I really enjoyed the meal, and I’m guessing that we’ll be ordering from them in a few weeks when we’re too busy to think up dishes on our own.
