Review of HelloFresh's Juicy Lucy with Tomato Onion Jam & Arugula Salad

Review Summary

I first ran across the Juicy Lucy when I was doing research for my series of NFL Burgers and found that not only is it a staple of Minnesota...it's also a damn fine way to make burger.

For those unfamiliar, the Juicy Lucy is a cheeseburger - with the cheese stuffed on the inside. As people are quite creative, the recipe has evolved to include all kinds of cheese and non-cheese stuffings alike. Most importantly, when done right, the Juicy Lucy is simply delish!

HelloFresh's version is stuffed with cheddar cheese, paired with a tomato-onion "jam" and an arugula side salad. Of course, the most important questions - Is it any good?

I liked the flavors and the quality of everything that came. The onion jam had a rich flavor, and was a great topping for the burger (one that you can leave off if you don't like it). The side salad was nothing special, but fine - I like a simple arugula salad. I alway worry about the quality of bread that comes in kits, but after a quick toast in the oven, the bun came out nice; tender with crispy edges.

So the flavors were all good...but that said, my chief complaint was there just wan't a lot of food for two people. There's enough beef for two 5oz burgers, which is obviously a bit bigger than a quarter pounder, which sounds like enough, but there's little else of substance on the plate - no starch. So I left the table wanting a bit more, and next time would probably make of some of my own fries, or rice, or pasta...something else to provide a bit more filler.

The other impact of amount of meat, is there is just barely enough to get full coverage around the cheese your stuffing - in fact, I could not use all the cheese. I was able to make it work, but did have one minor cheese blow out on one of the burgers when cooking.

The tomato onion jam was the star for me, and will likely become something I regularly make on my own.

Cooking time for this meal is advertised as 40 minutes, and it took me just about that amount of time. None of the directions where complicated or ambiguous. Sealing in the cheese within the burger, is the only tricky part that I think some people with have a bit of trouble with.

Overall, I was happy with the flavors and the quality of this meal. I just wish the burgers where bigger, or maybe they threw in a couple potatoes to make some oven roasted wedges. It would have made it more complete/filling.

Ingredients

All the ingredients that came from HelloFresh were good quality, fresh, and tasted nice. I just which there was more ground beef for bigger burgers.

HelloFresh Juicy Lucy IngreidentsThe ingredients were packaged together, making sorting a non-issue, with the ground beef sandwiched between still frozen icepacks. Included with this recipe was:

  • Beefsteak tomato
  • Red onion
  • Garlic
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Ground beef
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Brioche buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • Ketchup
  • Arugula

The only things that you'll need from your pantry are salt, pepper, sugar and oil (I used olive oil).

Making the dish

HelloFresh says that you should be able to make this recipe in 40 minutes - which I think is very reasonable. In fact with a bit of practice, I'm thinking you could do it in 30. The only tricky part, and where you can spend a lot of time, is stuffing the burgers.

In my opinion, where was more cheese than you can reasonable stuff in the amount of meat they gave you, and I ended up not using all of it. I'm sure if I took extra time I could have made it work, but I don't think anyone wants to spend 15 minutes making two burgers. And the more you stuff in, the more you risk a cheesy "blow out" when cooking. Take your time, make sure you get a good seal around all the stuffing; don't be afraid to leave out some of the cheese.

HelloFresh breaks the recipe down into 6 steps:

  1. Preheat & Prep: Set your oven (or toaster oven) to 400 degrees to toast the buns. Then dice & slice the tomato & onion. You also start roasting the garlic by wrapping it in foil with some olive oil, and popping that in the oven. In 20 minutes it will soften and get a bit sweet - ready to make a dressing.
  2. Make the onion jam: In a pan on the stove top, you cook the onion & tomato with salt & pepper until broken down, then add a bit of sugar and balsamic vinegar. You then reduce until it reaches "jam" consistency.
  3. Shape Patties: You divide the beef and then flatten into thin patties. Place the cheese in the center of each and fold over the edges to seal. This is going to be a bit tricky for some...and you may not be able to get all the cheese stuffed in there. It's important to make sure the meat is sealed everywhere so the cheese doesn't leak out.
  4. Cook Patties: Clean the pan used for the jam, and re-heat with some olive oil. Fry the burgers for about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Toast the Buns & Make Dressing: Split the buns in half and toast in the oven for few minuets until browned. Take the roasted garlic and smash with a fork, and then combine (to taste) with mayo, vinegar, oil and salt and pepper - that's the dressing for the salad.
  6. Finish & Toss Salad: Toss the arugula in the dressing. Serve the burgers with the ketchup, jam, mayo...all to taste, and you're good to go!

Taste

I did really like the flavors HelloFresh put together. The Juicy Lucy is a way to make a burger a bit more exciting...and the cheese and the beef where both good quality and good flavor. As you bite into the burger, you get the flavor and texture of the gooey cheese...which I really love. And visually it's a very cool dish.

The reality is the onion jam was both the most prominent flavor & the star of the burger. It had a nice balance of sweet and tart; and of course the flavor of the caramelized red onion - which you gotta love.

I am a bit of a sucker for a simple arugula salad, but admittedly, there was nothing special about it. It was a nice fresh, clean tasting side - but not very substantial.

I wish there was more food and I'd probably call this a box for 1.5 people vs 2.

Review of HelloFresh's Juicy Lucy with Tomato Onion Jam & Arugula Salad

Overall

So, I generally liked the flavors and quality of this meal a lot, but was disappointed in the quantities. It would make a great lunch, but only a small dinner.

The ingredients were good. The directions simple and clear. And not too time intensive. But it's also one that would be pretty easy to make on your own.

I'm a big fan of HelloFresh & am regularly impressed with the options they provide. Based on the fact that there's probably better things to choose in the weekly menu, I'd probably give this one a pass, and make my own Juicy Lucy when I'm jonesing for one.

Ciri Khas Taman Simalem Resort

Program tour taman simalem resort pun beraneka ragam, dimulai dari pass by tour di mana orang masuk ke Taman Simalem sekaligus melintas di jalan lintas Medan – Sidikalang. Mereka hanya perlu membayar entrance sesuai tarif yang berlaku.

 

Ada juga program Full Day Tour di mana wisatawan mengambil paket wisata taman simalem resort yang selesai dalam sehari tanpa menginap. Untuk ini dibutuhkan disiplin peserta agar waktu yang digunakan dapat maksimal. Selain program-program ini tentulah program tournya disertai program menginap.

07.00 WIB Berangkat menuju Taman Simalem Resort

09.30 WIB Tiba di Kota Berastagi (shopping and relax)

Program Tour Danau Toba Di Antara Dua Bandara

Danau Toba sebagai salah satu destinasi wisata bertaraf dunia semakin hari kian diminati dan memiliki nilai jual yang semakin tinggi. Saat ini ada dua Bandara bertaraf internasional yang beroperasi di Sumatera Utara dan siap membantu anda mengantar dan menjemput ke tujuan wisata pilihan anda, yaitu Bandara Kuala Namu di Medan dan Bandara Silangit di Siborong-Borong Tapanuli Utara.

Program Tour Silangit Ala Travel Agent Medan

Agen travel di Medan menyikapi beroperasinya kedua Bandara ini sebagai sebuah peluang untuk meningkatkan kunjungan wisatawan ke Danau Toba sekaligus menjadi ajang kompetisi bisnis di antara para pelaku pariwisata di Kota Medan dan Danau Toba.

Bandara Silangit Bisa Menjadi Kompetitor Handal Bagi Pelaku Wisata Medan.

Bisa dibayangkan, bila para penyedia layanan di Medan khususnya pengelola destinasi termasuk hotel, oleh-oleh dan restoran-restoran di Medan kalah dalam memberikan pelayanan baik dalam hal mutu produk dan mutu pelayanan, akan ada kemungkinan program tour medan akan menjadi kenangan belaka. Sangat mungkin jika para wisatawan akan berhenti datang ke Kota Medan dan hanya mengunjungi Danau Toba, Pulau Samosir, Taman Simalem Resort dan Berastagi. Caranya adalah dengan menggunakan penerbangan arrival dan departure di Bandara Silangit yang disebut dengan istilah paket tour danau toba silangit.

Bandara Silangit Butuh Sentuhan Profesional

Di sisi lain, Bandara Silangit bisa saja mengalami hal senasib bilamana destinasi di daerah Kabupaten Tapanuli Utara dan Kabupaten Toba Samosir tidak mengalami kemajuan. Wisatawan akan berfikir tentang apa yang bisa dilihat bila mengambil paket wisata danau toba dari silangit dengan mengambil start di Bandara Silangit.

Kami melihat atraksi wisata dan objek wisata di sepanjang jalan dari Bandara Silangit hingga Parapat masih sangat terbatas dan kurang menarik. Ini bila terus menerus berlanjut seperti ini bisa menjadi preseden buruk bagi masa depan objek wisata danau toba khususnya di kawasan selatan. Sejujurnya mengapa orang memilih program paket wisata silangit dengan landing atau take off di Bandara Silangit, yaitu karena melihat jarak Bandara lebih dekat dari Parapat (Danau Toba) dan bukan karena alasan lain di mana banyak destinasi wisata menarik di bagian selatan Danau Toba.
