So why else might Just Meats, be a good fit for you? Sometimes we need a quick, no-fuss meal that tastes great, but we don’t necessarily have the time to make it all from scratch. As a busy working mom, I get it! As much as I try to prepare for the busy weeknights, there are times when I need backup. Just Meats, has made this so easy for me! With their flavorful and delicious proteins, all I have to do is heat up the pre-cooked meat in a skillet for 2 minutes! They have such a variety to choose from, I stock my freezer with a bunch and pull out whatever I am in the mood for. I honestly use this for lunch the majority of the time. When I am in the middle of a busy workday, I often neglect myself and I don’t take the time to make myself lunch. I simply run the package under hot water for a few minutes to defrost (if I haven’t transferred it to the fridge to defrost ahead of time.) While it is defrosting, I make a quick salad. Then I will pop the meat in the skillet and cook for a few minutes until it is hot. BOOM…lunch is done!
Getting back to this fresh, delicious and healthy dish…. It is a fiesta in a bowl…and your mouth! It features Just Meats delicious carne asada, fluffy rice, sweet corn, and a vibrant cucumber avocado salsa, all coming together for the perfect combination of textures and flavors. It's restaurant-worthy quality made at home, perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or a casual weekend gathering.
