Home Chef Meal Kit Delivery Review

Back with another meal kit delivery service review! I recently got to try another service called Home Chef. Home Chef is an ingredient kit service based out of Chicago and currently deliver to 60% of the country.

Home Chef
Herbes de Provence pork tenderloin with zucchini and yellow squash
Just like Plated and Hello Fresh, you can choose your specific meals. Each meal is $9.95 per serving (each meal serves 2), and delivery is free if you order $40 (otherwise, delivery is $10). If you get delivery, which you would with 3 meals for 2, Home Chef comes out to be cheaper than Plated or Hello Fresh. Also, you can Join Today & Enjoy 3 Free Meals.

They have at least 8 meal choices each week and they're clearly labeled with food restrictions like "gluten-free", "nut-free", "low calorie", etc. I also like that they have breakfast meal options, too, which are also cheaper, so you can get 2 dinner meals and 1 breakfast if you choose, to meet your $40 minimum.
Home Chef
Home Chef is a subscription service, but you can adjust the number of recipes each week.
Home Chef's recipe card also shows your the nutrition for each meal, along with drink pairing suggestions. My favorite part, thoughh, is the "days best cooked by" letting you know how many days you can let it sit in the fridge. This would also tell you which of the meals you got you should cook first!
Home Chef
Home Chef's meal choices are more approachable than the likes of Blue Apron. Another pro is that most meals are easy enough to prepare and should take less than 30 minutes.

My meals that week included Steak au Poivre with green beans and cauliflower gratin.
Home Chef
My favorite was the herbes de Provence pork tenderloin pictured at the top of the page. The pork was tender and more forgiving to me overcooking it, and it was quite easy to make!

I also had the fried goat cheese and arugula salad, which I really enjoyed, especially with the pickled onions.
