HelloFresh Review: Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Chops with Apple Pan Sauce, Scallion Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Green Beans
Tonight was someone else's turn to cook dinner--yay! My daughter took over this one. She is still learning to cook, and hates cooking pork chops--she says she has a hard time cooking them so they aren't too dry and they aren't left raw in the middle. But, these were cooked perfectly!
The green beans and the mashed potato sides seem to be a very common side dish with HelloFresh meals. I think that was our main issue with this one--if you don't order HelloFresh as often as we do, you probably wouldn't think much about it--but seems like a lot of the sides are pretty repetitive. Most of the dishes we order have either a similar rice or potato dish and/or some kind of roasted vegetable. In any event, next week we are planning to take a week off from HelloFresh next week and pull together all of our own meals. Kind of looking forward to a change, but at the same time it seems like meal planning takes me forever...
But I digress...the sauce and seasoning on the pork chops was great--I like the sweetness of the apple, paired with the savory seasoning on the pork chops. The pork was definitely our favorite part--the sides, not so much.
Would I order this one again? Maybe. It was lower in calories than most HelloFresh meals, so it had that going for it.
