Classic Box Menu 11/4 to 11/10

Red and yellow peppers, orange sweet potatoes, scallion greens, and lime—okay, so we might be missing the BIV part of ROYGBIV, but the first four letters are well-represented on this plate. The bright and colorful veggie jumble is bursting with concentrated, oven-roasted flavors, while the spice-rubbed chicken breasts on top bring Southwestern flair.

It’s commonly agreed that no one makes meatloaf quite like Mom. But our chefs will settle for second best by taking a page from her book and passing on this recipe that stays about as true to tradition as can be. These ground beef mini loaves are brushed with a ketchup glaze, served with tender roasted carrots and potatoes, and drizzled with an herby thyme gravy. And if you’d like to claim this recipe as your own, don’t worry—we’ll stay mum.

Pineapple proved that it could conquer pizza. Now we’re helping it take its sweet–savory domination to the next level. Pineapple salsa smothers these pork chops, with the fruit’s tangy juices mingling with those of the pork. You’ll wanna scoot the jasmine rice and green beans over on your plate so that they can soak up some of that bright yellow sunshine, too.

The world of spicy Southeast Asian condiments extends well beyond sriracha. In fact, sweet Thai chili sauce might just outshine its more popular cousin in terms of all around likeability. It’s got that feisty heat, of course, but also a sticky sweetness that adds a glossy, glaze-like sheen to anything you put it on. For the shrimp and bok choy in this quick stir-fry, that means an instant layer of vibrant, lick-your-lips good flavor.

Pork and pineapple is one of those combos that will make your tastebuds do the hula, glow with sunshine, and ride the wave to Flavor Beach. Naturally, we had to find a way to turn that into a burger. Ground pork’s savoriness is amped up further by garlic and soy, and then with a touch of honey that complements the sweetness of the warm pineapple relish spiked with slivers of onion.

Béarnaise is one of the most elegant toppings you can put on a steak—the French sauce sings with fragrant tarragon and a splash of white wine vinegar. We’ve adapted it slightly to make it lighter and brighter, so that it bathes this rib-eye steak in flavors that feel vibrant without being heavy. With asparagus and crispy roasted spuds on the side, it feels like a luxuriant upgrade to classic meat and potatoes.

Argentinians love their beef—their asados (barbecues) are practically celebrations of the meat. Head to one and you’ll likely find a nicely seared steak accompanied by a communal bowl of chimichurri—a drizzly herb sauce with a pinch of tartness and heat. Although we can’t send you the experience of dining al fresco in picturesque Patagonia, we can give you this recipe that, along with a roasted veggie jumble, recreates those incredible flavors.

Gremolata may sound like a creature you’d find under your bed, but it’s actually a condiment with chopped herbs and nuts—think of it as pesto’s more rustic cousin. And like pesto, it’s a perfect match for gemelli pasta and other Italian-style ingredients, such as sausage and baby broccoli. We also promise it won’t growl and grumble into the night but rather send you into the evening content and happy.
