Beat the Receipt is the only affordable cooking challenge that gives a pro chef and a food influencer $20 each to shop for and cook a meal for two using the same main ingredient. As the challengers try to stay under $20, the pressure is on with shopping and cooking plans changing on the fly. Beat the Receipt is the perfect show for anyone who loves to improvise at the market and in the kitchen, or wants to learn some amazing affordable recipes.

Shanti prepares pork jowl rice, while Romano goes for pork bolognese. In the end, both contestants beat their receipts—watch the full episode above to see how everything turned out.
