Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

Our Plant-Forward recipes are designed by our chefs to help support a flexible diet that emphasizes plant-based foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and other legumes like lentils and soy foods, and includes occasional, moderate portions of meat, poultry, fish, and seafood.

This easy steakhouse-style dish gets a sophisticated lift from our irresistible aioli—simply made by stirring mayonnaise together with garlic, vinegar, and briny capers. It’s the perfect dipper for both the steak and a side of roasted potatoes, seasoned with zesty spices like paprika and ground yellow mustard.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Large dice the potatoes. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Roughly chop the capers. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chopped capers, half the vinegar, and up to half the garlic paste. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Roast the potatoes:
2 Roast the potatoes:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced potatoes on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra); toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 22 to 24 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Cook the steak:
3 Cook the steak:

Meanwhile, pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak. Cook 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. Let rest at least 5 minutes. 

* An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Cook the kale:
4 Cook the kale:

While the steak rests, to the pan of reserved fond, add the chopped kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the kale is wilted and most of the water has cooked off. Add the remaining garlic paste and remaining vinegar. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Slice the steak & serve your dish:
5 Slice the steak & serve your dish:

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steak; thinly slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steak with the roasted potatoes and cooked kale. Serve the aioli on the side. Enjoy!
