What smells so good?
As I was tossing our dinner in the wok this evening, he broke from watching TV just long enough to notice. “I’m making Fried Rice,” I replied. He then asked if he could have a bowl NOW! Did I tell him that I had tossed a bag of Ling Ling Yakiniku Beef Fried Rice into the wok? Not at that moment. You see, I’m not the best cook. That’s one of the reasons that I married Mr. S, when we met he owned a restaurant and was one of the chefs.
Yes, I let him have some.
I had a second bag of Ling Ling Frozen Fried Rice as a backup in the freezer, so I was good. You see, each box of this wonderful Asian dinner comes with two bags…for larger families, or like me – a husband who can’t get enough of this rice that tastes as good as our favorite restaurant. Plus, with the $2 off a box of Ling Ling Fried Rice available until the end of January, he can enjoy a different recipe every night this week.
How can a frozen fried rice taste this good?
Ling Ling uses a special infusion cooking method, to make sure that each grain of rice is infused with their delicious signature sauces. The outcome? An incredibly flavorful dish that tastes as good as takeout from your favorite Asian style restaurant. It’s SOOOO good, that I dare you to taste the difference. I think it’s actually BETTER than my local takeout, and it’s quicker to cook than it is to get in the car and drive there (or worse…wait for delivery that arrives in an hour and is cold).
I’ve cooked it in the microwave and the wok.
My preference is definitely cooking it on the stovetop. I love the way the smell of garlic and sauces waft through the house as I’m tossing it. All it takes is a little vegetable oil and fry pan (or wok as I use) and I my house smells like I’ve been cooking for hours. Cough, cough…it takes 7-10 minutes to make a bag this way.
I paired it with my go-to stir fry shrimp
- 1 tsp oil for wok
- 1 lb medium shrimp – peeled & deveined
- 3 stalks celery
- 1 cooking onion
- 1 green pepper
- 1 red pepper
- 3 TBS soy sauce
- 2 TBS oyster sauce
- 1 TBS rice vinegar
- 1 TBS grated ginger
- pinch sugar
- Whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, vinegar, ginger & sugar – set aside
- Slice in 1″ slices – celery, peppers & onions
- Put oil in wok and turn stove to medium-high
- Add shrimp and cook until pink
- Add vegetables and cook until they are tender
- Add sauce mixture until shrimp & vegetables are coated well and sauce thickens
- Serve with Ling-Ling Fried Rice
The only issue with this product…
Is deciding which of the authentic Asian style fried rice inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand I want to try. With choices like:
- Yakitori Chicken
- Yakiniku Beef – what I’m cooking in the photos
- Thai-Style Chicken
- Chinese-Style Vegetable
- Bibimbap Beef
You’ll want to try ALL of them.
