I received a box from Blue Apron, all opinions are my own
I absolutely hate cooking, I just never know what to make! I need someone to plan a meal for me and send me the ingredients so I know exactly what to do. That is why I love Blue Apron! Blue Apron sends fresh ingredients along with great recipe cards with step by step instruction on how to make each menu item. I received a recipe and ingredients for the Stir-Fried Beef and Udon Noodles which turned out so yummy!
My family are kind of picky eaters, we don’t like a lot of things, but we all loved this! The Stir Fried Beef & Udon Noodles was so easy to make I just couldn’t believe it. You could actually make this with any noodles if you wanted to!
“In this recipe, we’re making an easy stir-fry inspired by a range of Asian cuisines. We’re cooking beef and gai lan (or Chinese broccoli, a bittersweet leafy green) in hoisin sauce, a Chinese condiment used much like American barbecue sauce. And we’re mixing in Thai basil to infuse the dish with deeply herbaceous flavor. Finally, Japanese udon noodles offer extra heartiness and distinctively chewy texture. They can simply be added to the pan in the last few minutes of stir-frying—no boiling necessary. You’ll get delectable results in no time!” (Blue Apron recipe)
What I loved is that I really am not a great cook, but after I ate this I thought…wow! I just needed a little bit of help to show me what to get and how to make it. I also liked that I didn’t have to drag all of my kids to the grocery store, all of these items were delivered in a box with ice packs right to my door!
This recipe called for:
“On the Cutting Board
- 1⅛ Pounds Ground Beef
- 1 Pound Fresh Udon Noodles
- 3 Cloves Garlic
- 3 Scallions
- 1 Bunch Gai Lan
- 1 Lime
- 1 Bunch Thai Basil
- 3 Tablespoons Peanuts

It was incredibly easy to make and I can’t wait to get another box!
