Last weekend I shared a bit about a new Boston-based farm to table food delivery company called Family Dinner that was recently started by a couple friends I met at Sloan. The post is here. At that point, I had just received my first share, and was excited to dig into it with Laura.
Well dig into it we did. True to the company name, the mix of food inspired us to invite some friends over and go all out by cooking a big Sunday night dinner. It was great.
We started the night with a grilled open faced quesadilla, with the poblano peppers and cherry tomatoes from Family dinner, and the rest a mix of things we had around the house.
We then had a grilled corn, poblano pepper, cherry tomato, and onion salad, with some added manchego cheese we picked up at American Provisions.
The meat was most fun. We marinated the sirloin in parsley, cilantro, garlic, olive oil, and soy sauce for 24 hours.
We then removed the meat and let it sit for a bit.
We took the marinade, combined it with cumin, red wine vinegar, cayenne pepper, and chile pepper, then blended it in the Ninja into chimichurri sauce, per the Family Dinner recommendation.
Then grilled the steak for about 10 minutes:
And finally we had some grilled pears with a raspberry balsamic reduction sauce.
The whole thing was great, and I have to say, if it weren’t for the food share, we probably would have just ordered some sushi and watched Curb Your Enthusiasm.
If you’re even a bit curious, give it a shot. As a bonus, Tim’s the delivery guy for the time being.
