These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. Hearty, delightfully chewy udon noodles are a comfort food staple perfect for pairing with umami-rich sauces, like the combo of black bean sauce, soy glaze, and sesame oil that we’re using in this dish. For a final kick, we’re stirring in fresh lime zest and juice.

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl. In a bowl, whisk together the soy glaze, sesame oil, black bean sauce, and 1/4 cup of warm water.

    2 Cook the beef

    In a large pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    3 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced peppers and sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sautéed aromatics. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened.

    4 Finish & serve your dish

    Using your hands, carefully separate the noodles. Add the noodles, spinach, cooked beef, and sauce to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the spinach is wilted and the noodles are heated through. Turn off the heat. Stir in the lime zest and lime juice. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
