With a mixture of classics like the meatloaf paired with fusion dishes from all over the world, we've gathered our happy home cooks' favorite American recipes so you can get all your cravings taken care of in one place.


Top American Recipe #1

Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner

So simple and so satisfying. This comforting American meal can be whipped up in just about 30 minutes and has it all: Golden-seared herby chicken breasts, lemony orzo (which is tender pasta in the shape of rice), juicy, oven-roasted tomatoes, and zucchini topped with melty mozzarella, parmesan, and a delectable panko crust. Once you get a taste, you’ll know why this dinner is a total winner.

Top American Recipe #2

Korean Beef Bibimbap

There’s no doubt about it, Korean bibimbap has conquered our taste buds in a storm of delicious flavors and is the new comfort food we don’t want to go without. Dig into a delightful bowl of fluffy rice, pan-seared beef strips, and a colorful variety of crunchy veggies. Infused with the flavors of Korean signature ingredients like sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger, prepare to be “bowled” over.

Top American Recipe #3

Meatloaf Balsamico

This list of American favorites wouldn’t be complete without a meatloaf that’s so delicious it would make your grandma proud. In this rendition, our chefs decided to add a few more breadcrumbs to the ground beef to reach the perfect level of moisture. A balsamic ketchup glaze adds those sweet and tangy notes, while the almond-speckled green beans and a buttery sweet potato mash make this meal a complete and timeless success.

Top American Recipe #4

Peppercorn Steak

Originally from France, the peppercorn steak (or should we say “Steak Au Poivre”) has become a beloved staple in American cuisine. And while this dish never fails to satisfy our appetite for meat and gravy, it’s also pretty easy to make. In about half an hour, you’ll be able to pan-sear the perfect steak and whip up some roasted potatoes, creamed kale, and, of course, a delectable peppercorn sauce to tie it all together.

Top American Recipe #5

Mozzarella-Crusted Chicken

If you love a good chicken Parmesan, you’ll be all over this gem of a recipe. And here’s why: We figured out the perfect balance of breadcrumbs, mozzarella, and herbs to create a golden chicken crust that truly delivers on crunch and flavor. Featuring juicy, blistered tomatoes and a heap of baked potato wedges on the side, this ultra-satisfying chicken dinner is a successful spin on a family favorite.

Top American Recipe #6

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

Forget about Tuesdays, every day is taco day! And with this recipe, you won’t even mind. A delicious filling featuring sweet potato cubes roasted in cumin and honey, tender black beans, and a zesty avocado crema creates a fiesta in your mouth every time you take a bite. Add that sour cream and fresh cilantro and even the meat-loving carnivores at your table will be pleased to say the least.

Top American Recipe #7

Chicken Parm Salad

If you’re craving the satisfying flavors of chicken parm but don’t want to overdose on unnecessary carbs, you’re in luck! Our chefs managed to come up with a much lighter version of this American classic by baking the chicken in a thin coat of breadcrumbs and cheese instead of using the frying pan. Oven-roasted potato cubes and a delightful spinach salad dressed up in tangy sour cream make this meal a feast without the guilt.

Top American Recipe #8

Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

We promise, this HelloFresh fusion favorite will make you ditch your go-to take-out in a blink of an eye. Asian-inspired beef strips tossed in hoisin sauce, soy, garlic and warming ginger cozy up with snappy asparagus on a fluffy cloud of basmati rice. Topped with toasted sesame seeds, every bite features the deep umami flavors we’re kind of obsessed about. You’ll be so happy that you took matters into your own (cooking) hands.

Top American Recipe #9

New York Strip Steak

Don’t get fooled by the name, this isn’t your ordinary steak and potato dinner, but rather a luxurious take on an American favorite. The juicy pan-seared steak is joined by creamy mashed potatoes spiked with real truffle zest and tender, almond-speckled green beans. Finished off with a savory demi-glace reduction, this meal is a true triumph and perfect for a date-night, the holidays, or a self-care evening.

Top American Recipe #10

Creamy Shrimp Tagliatelle

Whether you’re too busy or just feeling lazy, you never have to skip on a homecooked meal, and this recipe is the best proof. In just about 20 minutes, we’ll guide you through one of the easiest, fastest, and tastiest dinners of the HelloFresh universe. Just cook the pasta, fry up shrimp until golden and add a handful of heirloom tomatoes. Mix altogether, season with chili, stir in that sour cream, squeeze a lemon, and dig right in!
