Is this really a thing?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not here to judge.
I’m here to learn, because this idea is amazing for busy working moms and dads.
Nobody has time to make a menu, shop for all the groceries, prep those groceries, and then spend your day over the stove making the food.
There’s a much easier way, and we are here to share it with you.
You can score a week’s worth of food for one crazy low price at Texas Roadhouse, and I’m totally doing this.
How Do You Meal Prep With Texas Roadhouse?
I guess, first of all, you have to have a Texas Roadhouse near you.
You are going to call and order the Family Meal pack. Make sure you get it to go — don’t eat it there, obvi.
There are about 9 different Texas Roadhouse Family Meals, so know what you want before you call.
You can choose from Beef Tips, Chicken Critters, Seafood, Pork Chops, Ribeyes, Ribs, Sirloin, Cheeseburgers, and Pulled Pork.
I’d totally get the chicken, but that’s just me. You do you, babe.
What comes in the Roadhouse Family Meal?
You’d be rather surprised at how much food you get for the price.
Let’s take the sirloin for example.
It comes with 2 8-ounce Sirloins and 2 6-ounce Sirloins. That’s a lot of meat for the week, yo!
Then you get to choose between a family sized Caesar Salad or a family sized House Salad — both come with 2 dressings of your choice.
Now, you get to choose 4 sides: Buttered Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Seasoned Rice, Steak Fries, or Texas Red Chili.
Of course, the meal pack isn’t complete without those famous Roadhouse fresh Baked Bread with their delicious Cinnamon Honey Butter.
How Do You Meal Prep With The Roadhouse Family Meal?
Grab a plethora of food storage containers — an entire plethora — which in this case happens to be 6.
Next, you’re going to divide that family sized Salad up between 3 of the containers.
Top the salad with about 3-ounces of sliced up Sirloin.
Now fill the container with the sides — however you want to do it. Just make sure it stretches to all 6 containers.
Drop a roll into the food storage containers.
In the 3 food containers that didn’t get the salad, put about 4-ounces of the meat, along with the veggies and a roll.
Now, you have 3 Steak Salads and 3 protein-heavy dinners.
That’s it. You’re done. Easy peasy meal prep done!
Don’t like Texas Roadhouse?
You can pretty much do this with any restaurant.
Just order the family sized meal, and then divide it up over several meals.
They don’t have family sized meals?
Order a couple regular meals, and make each one stretch over 2 or 3 meals.
