When I was emptying the bag into the pan, I immediately noticed how many peppers were in this meal. It was easy to smell them. The sun-dried tomatoes seemed a little on the short side in comparison. I absolutely love sun-dried tomatoes in my pastas and am not such a fan of peppers so this made me a sad panda. The noodles and steak were in good proportion, however. Stouffers advertises this as a 2 – 4 serving meal with 730 calories per serving if you simply split it so you may want to eat a bit less.
Cooking was easy enough and I was soon taking my first tastes. And then I remembered exactly why I do not like steak. It has no taste. Steak just seems extremely bland to me. It might be because I like my meat well cooked and this decreases the flavor but not only was this steak bland, but it just didn’t seem to soak up the flavors of the other ingredients very well. The gorgonzola sauce was nice but, as I suspected, the whole thing was a bit hotter than it should have been–in my opinion–because of so many peppers. The tomatoes were good but there were not nearly enough of them.
I wouldn’t mind having this again, especially to appease a steak lover, but it didn’t really hit the spot.
