This is Part 2 of my on Chef’s Plate, a meal subscription service. Part 1 covered my main thoughts on the program and this post will showcase another example of the food and recipes Chef’s Plate delivers.

The second recipe I ordered from Chef’s Plate was the grilled flank steak with roasted radicchio. Similar to the lamb burger, the meat included was top-notch. All of the instructions were clear and simple to follow. When I first unpacked the ingredients, I was worried that the portion size was not enough to fill The Hubby and I. After our meal though, while we weren’t stuffed, we weren’t hungry either.
Left to my own devices, I wouldn’t have thought to pair the steak with a jam reduction but the sweet flavour balanced well with the savoury beef. Radicchio is also an ingredient I usually shy away from (and pick out of my salads). This recipe introduced a method to make the bitter vegetable more palatable. While I still didn’t love it, I liked the experience of trying something new.
Overall, my second meal with Chefs Plate was consistent with the first. Chef’s Plate provided high quality ingredients and an easy recipe to produce a quick, delicious and nutritious meal.
