This week I’ve been dealing with the dreaded “vacation hangover”. Do you know that feeling: so many things to do but all you want to be is back on vacation? This week, between cleaning the entire house to putting away the Halloween decorations, I’ve barely had time to sleep let alone think about dinner. So, it’s Ling Ling Frozen Asian Entrees to the rescue! Here’s my latest (and easiest) dinner fave and why you need to try it for yourself.
We all have days where we look at the clock and think, “It can’t be five o’clock already! What am I gonna do for dinner?” Lately for my crazy busy traveling schedule, it’s becoming more frequent. Sure, Mr. Locke steps up to the proverbial dinner plate a lot to help me out, but sometimes he’s got a super busy schedule, too. So, it’s to the freezer I head to look for dinner ingredients.
I’m not sugar coating how much I adore Ling Ling Frozen Entrees, I promise. With so many varieties to choose from, it’s easy to customize dinner to suit everyone. Here’s the scoop on Ling Ling Bibimbap Beef Fried Rice and why it easily passes the taste test for this family.
Putting Ling Ling Bibimbap Beef Fried Rice to the Test
There’s frozen fried rice and then there’s frozen fried rice. And then there’s Ling Ling Fried Rice varieties. I’m not kidding, it’s undoubtedly the best tasting frozen fried rice I’ve ever eaten.
And, while it’s delish on its own, I like to add an extra side dish for my hungry family. So here’s what I do: I like to pair the fried rice with a soup or hearty veggie salad. I like a ton of crunch, so our salad bowls are filled with lettuces, green peppers, carrots, and cucumber.
As for the salad dressing? It’s a simple sesame oil recipe: minced garlic, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame seeds, and sesame oil. Whisk together and it’s a great compliment to the fried rice flavors. Or even quicker, grab a bottle of Asian dressing off the Walmart shelf and save yourself even more time.
The Fried Rice Entrees are really easy to make as well – everything you need is in the box apart from the oil used for frying. I love all of the crunchy bits once it’s finished frying in our skillet and really love the veggies and pieces of tender beef. There’s also a tiny kick of spice and heat that satisfies Mr. Locke!
Where to Find Ling Ling Frozen Asian Entrees
Ling Ling has five unique Fried Rice dishes (just in case beef isn’t your bag), each based on authentic Asian inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand.
- Yakitori Chicken
- Yakiniku Beef
- Thai-Style Chicken
- Chinese-Style Vegetable
- Bibimbap Beef
You can bet I’ll be trying all of them (check out my review of Yakitori Chicken). No kidding. The company uses an “Infusion Cooking Method”. Translation? Each noodle or rice grain is infused with Ling Ling signature sauces.
You can also find:
- Two Noodle varieties: Chicken Yakisoba, Drunken Noodles with Chicken
- Two Dumpling varieties: Chicken Dumplings in Chili Sauce and Pork Dumplings in Chili Sauce
Make sure to check the Ling Ling store locator for the varieties near you. At this time, mine is selling all of the Frozen Fried Rice styles.
Yeah. All natural, too. So, on those days that I’m too busy to even think about dinner, Ling Ling entrees are a great alternative. I found that the Bibimbap Beef Fried Rice tastes so similar to the fried rice we get at our local Chinese food restaurant that it’s really hard to tell the difference.
