For our own steak night, we got delicious French Quarter-style Black Angus Rib-Eye Steaks with Olive Tapenade meal kit from Sunbasket. When I ordered this meal I had a few other meals in my box, plus a bunch of groceries, which are easy to add to your box from your Sunbasket account. The Black Angus steaks are an upcharge of $8.99 extra per serving. Is this meal worth it? Yes! I try to order whenever they have the Black Angus steaks on the menu, because they are so delicious, and with children, a date night out is so not in the cards for me. My hubby and I can have a special night at home with some top-flight food.

When the box arrived on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to get started! Upon inspection, the ingredients looked fresh and high-quality. The recipe and instruction guide were easy to follow with clear instructions. It’s also convenient that the ingredients are packaged separately for each step of the recipe.
I immediately marinated the steak with the kit’s Creole Spice Blend and vegan Worcestershire sauce, as instructed. Next were the olives and capers, which I chopped into small pieces. I thought sending vegan Worcestershire sauce was a little funny. I tasted it, and it was pretty close to the real thing. Buuuuut, there wasn’t really a need for that particular modification for this meal!
I made a quick chop for the green beans and peppers, then cooked them with olive oil in a pan on high heat until crispy tender. Then, I seasoned them with salt and pepper for a bit of flavor. (Aside, I’ve been using my new Misen pan for all my cooking and it makes a big difference to be able to use actually high heat vs. nonstick cookware!)
Once I was done with the green peppers and roasted red peppers, I put them aside and cooked the steak. 2-3 minutes per side. You can see that my pan was hot!!! The Black Angus selection was really worth it, these were delicious.
After cooking the steaks off, I transferred the juicy steak onto a plate, topped it off with the olives and capers, and voila! A delicious, healthy meal was ready to be enjoyed! The final product looked and smelled delicious. The steak was tender and juicy with a beautiful crust.
The steak was cooked perfectly medium-rare thanks to the great timing on the recipe, was really tender, and the Creole Spice Blend added a great deal of flavor. The olives and capers gave it a nice salty bite that balanced out the sweetness of the roasted red peppers.
I really love how the steak turned out, not only because of its taste but also because of how easy it was for me to cook such a beautiful dish. The instructions were laid out so that even the most novice cooks would have no trouble following along!
The veggies also turned out to be a hit – they were crispy, delicious, and perfectly cooked.
Our steak night was a great success! My husband and I had a great meal, enjoyed each other’s company and the delicious food. (I probably fed my kids some nuggets this night!!) The flavors were just perfection.
The meal kit was a win for me not only because of the convenience and ease but also because they use high-quality ingredients. Once again, I’m quite impressed with Sunbasket’s meal kit service! Their recipes are easy to follow, and the end result is a tasty, restaurant-quality dish. I would definitely recommend their service to anyone looking for an easy and convenient way to enjoy a home-cooked meal.
