Hello Fresh: Week Three

We are really starting to get the hang of this  Hello Fresh cooking and really loving it! We are trying new recipes and I am really starting to enjoy cooking!

We had some pretty good meals last week! We really enjoyed all of them - except I might have added too much truffle oil to the potatoes in our NY Strip Steak - when they say add more to taste, seriously taste it before you add more! But other than that our favorite was definitely the New York Strip Steak, we did pay $10 extra for this as a "premium" meal, but it was worth it!


  • 16oz yukon potatoes
  • 1oz sliced almonds
  • 4 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsb peppercorn
  • 10oz new york strip steak
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsb butter
  • 6oz green beans
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 unit beef demi glace (pre-packaged)
  • .25oz parsley
  • 2 tbsb truffle oil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper

  • Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel potatoes, then cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Place in a medium pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return potatoes to empty pot.
  • Meanwhile trim any stems from green beans. Use a mallet or heavy pan to crush peppercorns in their bag until coarsely ground. Finely chop parsley. Peel, halve, and chop shallot. Toss green beans, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper on a baking sheet. Roast in oven until tender, 12-15 minutes.
  • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat steak dry with a paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook to desired doneness, 3-6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside to rest.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add a drizzle of oil to pan. Add shallot and cook until softened, 1-2 minutes, tossing. Stir in 1/4 tsp crushed peppercorns (use more or less to taste), demi-glace, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until reduced, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 1 tbsp butter and half the sour cream and stir until butter is melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • When potatoes are done, add remaining sour cream and ½ tsp truffle oil to pot (we sent extra oil—use more or less to taste). Mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. TIP: Add a splash of milk to make potatoes extra creamy.
  • Thinly slice steak against the grain. Toss green beans with almonds. Divide mashed potatoes, green beans, and steak between plates. Drizzle sauce over steak and potatoes. Garnish with parsley
