A note about serious food allergies
Have you ever sat down and devoured a perfect pot roast meal, properly slow cooked and meat-y, and said to yourself: “You know, I want another meal just like this one… but in ball form.” Have you? Well, what's stopping you? What's stopping you from combining ground beef with pot roast seasoning and breadcrumbs, for a meatball made in roasting heaven? Or making some mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives? Or adding in some peas and gravy, just to keep it pot roast kosher? What's stopping you now? Only the time it takes to hit “order.”
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Mash Potato and Prepare Ingredients
Peel and cut potatoes into evenly-sized large chunks. Bring a medium pot with potatoes, 8 cups water, and 2 tsp. salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until easily pierced, 14-18 minutes.
While potatoes simmer, mince chives.
Combine cornstarch and ½ cup water in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking water. Drain cooked potatoes in a colander, then return to pot. Add sour cream, butter, a pinch of chives (reserve remaining for garnish), and ¼ tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. If too thick, add potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.
Make the Meatballs
Add ground beef, breadcrumbs, seasoning blend, and ¼ tsp. salt to another mixing bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
Form mixture into six golf ball-sized meatballs.
Sear the Meatballs
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add meatballs to hot pan and roll often until browned on all “sides,” 4-6 minutes.
Remove from burner.
Roast the Meatballs and Peas
Transfer meatballs to one half of prepared baking sheet. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Roast in hot oven, 6 minutes.
Remove from oven and carefully add peas to empty half of baking sheet. Toss peas with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.
Roast again until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
While meatballs and peas roast, make sauce.
Make Sauce and Finish Dish
Stir cornstarch and water until recombined.
Return pan used to sear meatballs to medium-high heat. Add demi-glace and cornstarch-water mixture to hot pan and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, remove from burner.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spooning sauce over meatballs and garnishing mash with remaining chives. Bon appétit!
