Gousto Meal Box Recipe Review
Gousto food meal box review // Spiced Pork Tenderloin & Peanut Sauce Recipe

I’m all for trying new recipes and expanding my cooking repoitoire. Sometimes, eating the same 5/6 meals on repeat can get pretty boring. So, when Gousto, the subscription meal service got in touch, I defo wanted to see what it’s all about!

As I’m sure you’re aware, I love cooking. Getting in the kitchen after a day at work with a classic 90’s playlist on in the background is my way to unwind and relax after a day at work. But like I’ve already mentioned, finding new food inspo can be a struggle and we often eat variations of the same meals. The box appealed to me as we got to try a couple of new recipes, but didn’t have to buy lots of new ingredients that we wouldn’t use up.

With 22 different recipes to choose from each on the site and a choice of vegetarian, quick and easy & low calorie recipes, Gousto can be tailored to your lifestyle. So, if you want to eat fresh but don’t want to spend the evening in the kitchen, this is the ticket!
We chose two meals and opted for a Sunday delivery. This way, I didn’t have to think about dinner on Monday or Tuesday after work. All of the ingredients were in the fridge ready and waiting for me.

First up was the Spiced Pork Tenderloin & Peanut Sauce. I loved the illustrated recipe cards which were easy to follow and helpful so I knew what it should/would look like!

The kit included everything I needed from the pork tenderloin, broccoli, wholegrain rice, meridian peanut butter no less and sachets of soy sauce, plus multiple other ingredients required.
This one was one of slightly longer recipes taking 35mins and I would say that was about right. As this was a dish I hadn’t made before, I found the recipe easy to follow, however slightly fiddly as it include chopping raw garlic and ginger whereas I usually buy dried and using 3 different pans, which upped my culinary know-how, I must say!

But, the meal itself? Delicious. I did have my doubts over the portion size. You can choose the recipes for 2 people, 4 people and so on. I was obviously cooking for the two of us, and whilst the cuts of meat and veggies were smaller than what I’m used to, it didn’t take anything away from the flavour.

I really enjoyed this meal and if you’re a busy bee who loves to cook without too much prep and planning involved, Gousto is for you. I really enjoyed the ease of it all and knowing what I was cooking without having to check out the contents of the fridge defo was a bonus, I’m not sure the cost comes quite within our budget.
