Top Easy Recipe #1

Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner

A real winner in terms of flavor, this leading easy recipe is for you if you want to impress but aren't too familiar with your kitchen.

We swear the name of this dish came before its first-place rating on our list of top easy recipes. However, we think our chefs knew exactly what they were doing. Juicy tomato and zucchini slices covered in mozzarella and panko turn into the creamiest and crispiest veggies you’ve ever tasted. Combined with a golden-seared herby chicken breast and the perfect amount of lemony orzo, there’s not much more you could ask for.

Korean Beef Bibimbap

Who knew making bibimbap could be so easy? Lucky for you, not only is this recipe a cinch to make, but also absolutely delicious!

There’s something really satisfying about eating from a warm bowl filled with delicious bite-sized ingredients and yummy sauce. But this particular one is also extremely nice to look at. A bright medley of crunchy veggies like carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and sesame-infused scallions meets bits of juicy beef marinated and cooked in soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Top off with drizzles of Sriracha and dig in!

Why make things complicated when you can whip up an ultra-satisfying feast in just about 30 minutes? And while you’re at it, we teach you how to get that perfect sear on your steak. Covered in creamy peppercorn sauce and combined with crispy oven-roasted potatoes and creamed kale, this special piece of meat truly takes the center stage on the plate and we’re not even mad about it.

Ginger Beef Stir-Fry

This recipe has it all: a tasty protein, healthy veggies, and some grains to tie everything together so you get all you need to satisfy you for the night.

If you’re like our home cooks, you get regular cravings for the deep sweet and savory flavor that develops when soy and hoisin sauce meet in a hot pan to caramelize tender beef strips. In this easy recipe, we’re adding some bright asparagus and hints of warming ginger and aromatic garlic. Served on a bed of the fluffiest rice, you’ll be hooked on umami after the first bite.

Top Easy Recipe #5

New York Strip Steak

A strip steak in a list of easy recipes? That's right! Easy, flavorful, and delicious, this steak recipe proves that great flavor doesn't have to take hours in the kitchen.

We know that steak, potatoes, and greens are already a solid trio on most days of the week. But for this version, you’ll raise the bar by adding decadent notes of truffle zest to creamy mashed potatoes. Toasted almonds adorn the perfectly stacked green beans and add a subtle crunch to the meal, while your pan-seared steak reaches dinner perfection with a traditional semi-glace reduction.

Top Easy Recipe #6

Creamy Shrimp Tagliatelle

Apart from being extremely easy to create, this tagliatelle dish can be whipped up in no time at all. If you have 20 minutes to spare, your stomach better have the space to spare because you'll be licking the plate clean!

Did you know that the delicate texture of fresh pasta is great for soaking up creamy, butter-based sauces? And on top of that, it cooks so much faster than its dried counterpart. We call that a win-win on both fronts. In this easy recipe, we’ve turned fresh tagliatelle into a decadent feast by adding pan-seared shrimp, heirloom tomatoes, a rich creamy sauce, and a good lemon squeeze.

Our chefs love coming up with recipes that are super easy to whip up but look like you spent a couple of hours in the kitchen. This dish takes 30 minutes of your time and relies on three trusted ingredients that always give off festive vibes when combined: A pan-seared steak (smothered in a creamy peppercorn sauce), oven roasted potatoes, and tender creamed kale. Perfect for both weeknights and special occasions.
