We were happy to partner with Emily at My Everyday Table for this guide on how to use your Moink Box for 8 delicious and easy meals!
How to Use Your Moink box! So you’ve got your box of ethically-sourced meats at your front door, let me show you how easy it is to turn the contents into eight different easy and healthy family meals.
This post is brought to you by Moink, a regular partner of mine. Moink is a farmer-owned and operated community that ships humanely-raised, ethically-sourced meat right to your door (shipping is always free)! It’s an amazing service and company that I’m thrilled to partner with and share with you. If you want to see just how the boxes come, click here to watch me unpack a box!
HOW TO USE YOUR MOINK BOX:
I’m SO excited to share this post with you guys! I’m going to show you exactly how to turn a Moink box into eight different easy and healthy meals for families.
Let’s start at the beginning. You choose what meats and fish you want to be included in your Moink box and they deliver it right to your door! (Everything is frozen solid, and shipped safely.) The best thing is that you don’t need to think about or research where your meat comes from. When you order from Moink, you know you are getting meats and fish that are raised in ethical and sustainable ways AND you are supporting small, family farms.
All of the meats and fish that come from Moink are the best quality, so they don’t need much to shine. But if you need a little inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! I’m going to show you what to order in your Moink box, and more importantly, what to do with it all once it arrives!
HOW TO USE YOUR MOINK BOX: WHAT TO ORDER
We’re going to be using a mix of pork, beef, chicken, and salmon so I usually start with a combo and then customize my box to get just what I need and want. To make these eight different meals you’ll need:
- 3 packs Chicken Breast (3 lbs.)
- 1 pack Chicken Thighs (2 lbs.)
- 1 Large Salmon Filet (about 1.5-2 lbs.)
- 2 packs Ground Beef (2 lbs.)
- 1 Flank Steak (1 lb.)
- 2 packs pork shoulder roast (about 3.5-4 lbs.)
HOW TO USE YOUR MOINK BOX: HOW TO PLAN
Because we have eight different meals, I would recommend splitting this meal plan up into two weeks. Then you have four meals per week, which is a great start to two weeks of meal planning. Add in a night out or leftover night and you’re done! Alternatively, you could just plan for one big week of cooking and throw in a few nights of leftovers or out to eat when you need them. Do what works best for you and your schedule!
HOW TO USE YOUR MOINK BOX: WHAT WE’RE COOKING
I’m a meal planner and one of the things that make my plan a little different than others is that we utilize the ‘cook once, eat twice’ framework. This is an easy way to maximize your time in the kitchen so that you create more meals and spend less time doing it! So we’re making two slow cooker ‘cook once, eat twice’ meals and the other four meals included are quick and easy options that come together in about 30 minutes or less.
Let’s get to these recipes! Click on the links to be taken to the individual recipes.
(turned into Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches and Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes)
Everything about this meal is fantastic. How easy it is, the celery blue cheese slaw that tops the sandwich, and…BUFFALO SAUCE! Check out the full recipe here.
If you’ll be entertaining at all, may I recommend this roasted salmon dish? The fish is simply roasted and then topped with a dill compound butter that sounds fancy, but is really just delicious. Serve with my house salad and garlic toast. Check out the full recipe here.
This guacamole burger is cooked on the griddle, with a bit of butter and then topped with fresh guacamole. Need I say more? NO. Check out the full recipe here.
If I had to choose a favorite cut of meat, it might be chicken thighs WITH the skin and bones. (But please don’t make me choose!) These thighs get slightly crispy and you’ll be so glad that the skin is there. Served with roasted potatoes and broccoli, it’s a “three sheet” dinner, without much hands-on work. Check out the full recipe here.
(turned into BBQ Pork Sandwiches and BBQ Pork + Pineapple Quesadillas)
I think slow cooker was made for pork! Slow and low and full of flavor, this pork makes great sandwiches (you’ve got to try some slaw on top!) and is then combined with caramelized onions and pineapple for a deliciously easy quesadilla. Check out the full recipe here.
