Who couldn’t use another go-to dinner option on a busy night? I know I’m always looking for a high-quality and tasty staple to keep in my freezer for those nights when there just isn’t time to cook. We’ve grown tired of the typical chicken and rice entrees, and so the new line of Ling Ling® Fried Rice dishes are just the food infusion we needed!
There are several things that make the Ling Ling Fried Rice line special. First, they’re authentic Asian-inspired recipes from China, Korea, Thailand, and Japan. Plus, they use a new infusion cooking method which embeds their signature sauces into every grain of rice for full flavor in every bite. Plus, this new line compliments the Ling Ling Noodles and Dumplings so you can put together a complete meal that rivals your favorite Asian restaurant.
My mother and I went shopping recently and purchased a few Ling Ling Fried Rice entrees at Walmart. Since mom would be having dinner with us, I let her choose one, and I picked out the other two. We also tossed an Asian salad and a box of Fortune Cookies into our cart to round out our dinner along with some Halloween surprises for my granddaughter.
About Ling Ling Fried Rice Entrees
Ling Ling provides all this flavor by using high-quality ingredients and not from artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Their ingredients are minimally processed and prepared to allow you to heat and eat them with fabulous results. They use long grain rice, fresh vegetables, and tasty meats.
Plus, they offer two options for heating their rice – microwave instructions for a moister rice and stovetop for crispier. I tried both, and each took only about 7 minutes from start to finish. Each Ling Ling Fried Rice box includes two packages of rice allowing you to heat just the amount you need. It also has a convenient rip-open top that lets you easily vent the bag for the microwave or use it to pour the rice into your pan. Which method makes the better rice? Both. My husband loved the moistness in his microwaved entrée, and the pan-fried rice was precisely the way I like my fried rice. Either way, you choose to cook it, you’ll be rewarded with some fantastic scents.
The flavors in the salad were fantastic with the entrees, and they were the perfect pairing! The cookies are a tradition in our family – every Asian meal ends with their light sweetness and of course the sharing of the fortunes.
