Saturday’s dinner: Satay beef with creamy potato salad and stir-fried green beans

The My Food Bag ingredients for this recipe included:
4 potatoes
Sour cream (from previous recipe)
500g beef schnitzel
Baby beans
Cherry tomatoes
Satay sauce
Packet of shallots (from previous recipe)

The store cupboard ingredients you need are just oil but you need bamboo skewers for cooking.

Another simple and straightforward recipe with a nice twist. The potato salad is something I wouldn’t normally do with asian influenced meat dish but works very well with dish. The kids love meat on skewers but didn’t like the potato salad or the satay sauce. However, like all the My Food Bag recipes there is something that works for every member of the family and if the kids only eat the meat, beans and cherry tomatoes then that is fine with me.

Overall we have been very impressed with the My Food Bag service, quality and quantity of ingredients and the easy to follow recipes. I think its a great service that works really well for a busy family with kids. I would recommend it to a working family as at $169 a week it’s not that expensive. It works out around $676 a meal. However, as I am at home with my kids I also have to factor in lunches and snacks to our weekly budget so with that in mind it would put up your weekly food bill. I would love a service that you could dip in and out of i.e. not have to commit to a delivery every week. Not sure if that is possible.
