What makes this company unique is the way they cook their meals. They are sous-vide, which means they are cooked in a warm water bath for long periods of time. Slow cooking anything blends the flavors together.
Home Bistro meals are value-priced, meals that are cooked sous-vide. We wish the menu was larger.
This meal is made with sea schallops, which are much larger than the less expensive bay scallops. The sauce is quite charming. One of our favorite prepared shellfish meals, with a great side too.
A very good lobster bisque that is still made with cream and white wine. It comes with a bread bowl if you care to serve it like that, but served in a bowl is just fine. A great classic recipe.
BBQ Beef Brisket
In our opinion, this is the best Beef Brisket you will find from any prepared meal delivery service. The portion size is huge, the sauce is great, and the meat was moist, plentiful, and flavorful.
Much better than our picture, this amazing sauce cooked sous-vide. Traditional recipe, and a good portion. This Italian meal is almost aways on sale, so stock up on them. Easy to reheat at work too.
Tender shrimp sous-vided in a delicious sauce maximizes the flavor of this Italian meal. Comes as a complete meal too. The tasty shrimp come out perfectly making this a great dinner.
Roasted Crab Cakes
These are not the crab cakes you would get in Maryland, but for $10 they are hard to beat. The Lobster Sauce might be worth the price by itself, and we like vegetable sides that don't come out of a can.
This is a lighter version of their regular meatloaf, and although we think it is actually better, the portion size is small. Three bites actually. The sides are good, but another couple bites of meatloaf would be great.
If you place an order at Home Bistro, this is a meal you have to add to your order. The magic of sous-vide cooking really shines here. The noodles come our perfect and it's a large portion size. Great meal!
Beef Pot Roast
This might be the best comfort meal offerred by the meal delivery services. It' a giant portion of the most tender pot roast you have ever had. Sides are great too. Order a few, if they are on sale.
And here is the traditional meatloaf, which is a little bigger. The gravy is great, we wish there was more of it, and the potatoes and string beans are all better than average. Another must buy.
