Would you be amazed to know that I had everything delivered to my door to make this incredibly tasty Italian Steak with Grilled Radicchio Salad. Each ingredient pre-portioned (no measuring people). The delivery box also included an 8 x 10 recipe card complete with step by step photographs with clear and concise cooking directions, cooking tips and glossary of terms. Pretty much every thing is done for you but the cooking and the dishes. I’d say that’s pretty amazing and that I’m sorry I didn’t think of this incredible service myself.

What exactly is this service I’m talking about you ask? It’s called Plated.  “PLATED is a ready to cook dinner kit service. Plated makes it easy for you to to cook a fantastic gourmet meal in thirty minutes or less.”  I recently discovered Plated when I was nominated as a finalist for Plated’s Best Food Blog Award (hooray). They contacted me with the news and asked if I’d like to try a few plates. YES and thank you. I went to their website, chose my plates (there are meat/fish and vegetarian options), chose the delivery date and had them delivered to my DOOR. It was really that simple.

Serving Size: 2

What You Will Need:

  • 1/4 bunch flat leaf Italian parsley - divided, finely chopped
  • 1/4 bunch oregano - divided, finely chopped
  • 1/4 bunch basil - finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs rosemary - finely chopped
  • 5 sprigs thyme - finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic - minced, divided
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil - divided
  • kosher salt/pepper
  • 10 ounces skirt steak - rinsed and patted dry
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 14 ounces radicchio

What To Do:

  1. Into a medium bowl add HALF of parsley and oregano, all of rosemary, thyme, half garlic and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour HALF the marinade over skirt steak reserving the remaining. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Into a separate medium bowl, whisk together remaining parsley, oregano and garlic, mayonnaise, white wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt/pepper. Set aside.
  3. Rinse radicchio and pat dry. Halve lengthwise (keeping roots intact). Cut each half in thirds. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and radicchio to a grill pan over medium heat. Cook until charred and wilted, approximately 4 minutes, flipping half way through. Set aside.
  4. Add steak to pan and cook until browned on outside and medium rare, approximately 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and allow to rest for approximately 5 minutes. Cut against the grain into slices.
  5. Divide steak and radicchio evenly between 2 plates. Drizzle dressing over radicchio and reserved marinade over steak.

    When I lived in Minnesota, I used to have some of my groceries delivered during the brutal winters months, but they never came in an actual kit. Now if only someone would cook the food for me. HA. What a great idea. And *high five* on the award!

    Wow – what a wonderful idea! That is really cool that it is all delivered. I absolutely love the grilled radicchio. Grilling is my favorite way to eat any type of lettuce now.
