Tonight we reviewed the Korean Beef Bibimbap meal by HelloFresh. Like many people, we've been going stir crazy during this pandemic. We cancelled our big vacation earlier this summer, and we've been dying to just get out of town. We decided to spend a week in Central Oregon to spend some time outdoors. We spent the week hiking, biking and fishing--it was wonderful! We have still been leery of eating in restaurants and ended up only cooking at the house and picking up takeout. We decided to have HelloFresh delivered on our vacation--and so glad we did!
The beauty of ordering HelloFresh on our vacation is that it was so EASY--everything arrived pre-packaged at the front door. Normally if I were making a meal like this one on vacation, I'd have to purchase an entire bottle of soy sauce, a whole package of rice, etc. It was great to have just the amount we needed--no waste! And I didn't have to search for each item I needed at a grocery store I'm not familiar with. It was so nice to have a good, home-cooked meal on vacation.
In any event, back to the Korean Beef Bibimbap rice bowls...my daughter and I made this meal together. Granted, we were cooking in a kitchen we weren't familiar with, but this meal seemed like it took FOREVER! Maybe we are just slow at chopping...this one had a lot of things to chop. It ended up taking us almost an hour. The results were good, but this one seemed like a lot of effort for what it was. That being said, quality time cooking with my daughter was time well spent.
We've had this meal once before, and my husband LOVED it (said it was his favorite so far!). This time, though, we all thought it rated about a 7. Maybe our expectations were too high because it was so great the first time? Maybe it was cooking in a different kitchen?
So, I would recommend this one, but maybe not if you are trying to get dinner on the table in a quick manner.
My advice...order HelloFresh if you are staying at a vacation home with a kitchen! Highly recommended!!
