Rachael Ray fans and foodies alike, listen up. Home Chef, a leading meal prep delivery service, teamed up with the iconic chef to bring her meals straight to your door. The lineup includes Rachael’s fan-favorite flavors and ingredients—think Italian-style pasta dishes, steakhouse burgers and more mouth-watering comfort foods.
Here’s everything you need to know about about Rachael Ray’s Home Chef meal kits. (Don’t forget the EVOO!)
What are Rachael Ray Home Chef meal kits?
The Rachael Ray Home Chef meal kits are comparable to Blue Apron and Hello Fresh meal prep services where ingredients come pre-portioned. The joy of cooking is made easy with Rachael’s simple, step-by-step instructions. Plus, each box includes expert tips like how to achieve the perfect sear on burgers or the trick to tender, oven-roast potatoes.
We got to test a couple meals, and trust us when we say they taste like treating yourself to a restaurant dinner—minus the price tag. (And tip!) Plus, everything comes pre-portioned, so no ingredients go to waste.
As an added bonus, a new meal drops every week until mid-March, 2023, so there are plenty of Rachael Ray dishes to look forward to. Select kits are also available for pick-up at your local Kroger grocery store.
Oh, and if you’re looking for diet-friendly meal delivery services? We found the best keto, gluten-free and diabetic meal kits, along with the best meal delivery services for families. These produce delivery services make grocery shopping a breeze, too.
Our Favorite Rachael Ray Home Chef Meal Kits
We got a preview of Rachael Ray’s Home Chef meal kits and were able to sample a few tasty dinners for ourselves. One thing to note, however, is that menus change on a weekly basis. These dishes are just examples of what you’ll find in the collection. For the most current offerings, take a peek at the Home Chef menu page.
Nothing beats a juicy steakhouse burger. Especially when that recipe is from your favorite iconic chef. I had the pleasure of cooking this meal and can confirm it’s *chef’s kiss.* The pre-portioned ingredients arrived in a box, along with step-by-step instructions. The burger is topped with Dijon mushrooms and onions and served with thick-cut steakhouse fries. The steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce bring the dish full circle. It quite literally tasted like I was dining in a restaurant on a Wednesday night—except I was in my apartment cooking at home.
Pork Chop with Sweet Onions and Apple
Rachael’s pork chops with sweet onions and apples taught me I don’t have to settle for simplicity. Like the other kits, ingredients arrive pre-measured and ready to chop, along with a recipe card and step-by-step instructions. Pork chops are topped with tangy onions and apples and rounded off with a side of loaded crushed potatoes. Normally when I cook pork chops, I don’t think to spice ’em up with a special mixture. Not to mention, I’ve never tried crushing my potatoes before! It’s safe to say I’ll be whipping up my own variation of this recipe again.
Buffalo-Style Turkey Chili
Nothing screams fall and winter more than a warm bowl of chili. And we love how Rachael updates a classic recipe with a spicy, Buffalo-style flavor. Blue cheese crema and tortilla strips add tang and crunch, making it an ideal game day meal. Though I didn’t try this kit, it follows the same formula as the rest of the Home Chef deliveries. Expect to unwrap pre-portioned ingredients and step-by-step instructions with Rachael’s expert cooking tips.
