Here’s another review of another week of Gobble. See link below if you want to try it yourself!
Chicken Katsu Bento Box with Jasmine Rice & Sautéed Sugar Snap Peas and Miso Soup
It was super putzy (I don’t think people use that word anymore. But to me, it means busy work…lots of steps…some maybe unnecessary).
Get someone else to do the dishes in this one. It used 5 plates, 4 bowls, two stove top pans and a baking sheet.
The miso soup was just soup concentrate and water. But was still tasty!
I could not get the breading to stick to one of the breasts. The other one was just fine. But the ‘problem one’ wouldn’t come to temperature, it lost the breading, and wouldn’t get golden. Still tasted good though!
The flavors were good. I doubt I’d get this one again though since it was such a pain in the arse to make. But it was very good.
Shrimp Louie Sandwich with Lemon Pepper Zucchini Spears
This one was good…but…the aioli was too runny and I ended up with basically a puddle of milk on my plate. But the shrimp/aioli mix was delicious. Good buns too.
As you can see the green onions had gotten a little yucky (my delivery was a day late, Thanks FedEx). But the tomato was *chef’s kiss*!
I didn’t care for the zucs but I never do. The lemon pepper seasoning helped, but it’s like lipstick on a pig for me. I just don’t like zucchini.
They gave me enough lettuce (whole head) to have two salads afterwards!
I’d get this one again, but I’d not use lemon juice in the shrimp mixture, just maybe lemon zest instead so it’s not so wet.
And I’d feed the zucs to the dogs.
Blackened Top Sirloin Steaks with Mashed Potatoes & Baby Carrots
I was busy the night that this was on the menu, so Greg made it. He said it was easy, but dumb that they wanted him to put it in the oven for one minute. He just left it in the pan until it was cooked.
The potato mash was precooked, he just added the vegetables to it.
The meal was delicious though. If I wasn’t trying to cut down on beef, I would order this every time it was offered.
My thoughts after another week of Gobble:
My gripes first…
I don’t understand why they want you to finish these meals in the oven. It’s unnecessary and a waste of energy to turn on my oven, spend 30 minutes preheating it so that it can cook something for 1 minute.
Every recipe so far calls for using a microwave. I don’t have one. So I have to improvise by heating something in a pan or oven instead.
Now the good…
I really like these meals. They’re delicious, fast and easy.
They have so many good choices each week, it’s hard to narrow it down to three. It’s the one meal kit where I struggle with this. Most of the others, I have to end up picking one I’m not jazzed about. But not with Gobble.
