When I’m not traveling, I have a thing I like to call “Seasonal Sundays”. What are they, you ask? They’re excuses to stay in our pajamas and spend the day with minimal effort – and that includes making dinner! It’s Sundays like these that I’ve been reaching for the freezer door – and for Ling Ling Asian Entrees. But what to choose, chicken or beef? Happily, I can make both at the same time. Here’s the scoop on my fave frozen entrees and why they add to a perfect Seasonal Sunday.
During the work week, I’m totally swamped from sunrise to sundown – literally. Hitting the ground running is simply how I roll. But, when the weekend comes, it’s all about taking it easy when I’m home. I started our “Seasonal Sundays” tradition out of the sheer fact that I didn’t want to get out of my pjs. We catch up on Netflix (more like binge watch!), I listen to the 80’s Casey Kasem countdown on the radio, and we basically spend the day lounging around.
I love this tradition and look forward to it more than you know. We’ll even pull out the sofa bed and get the fireplace going. So you can see how cooking would be minimal with maximum flavor, right? So, keeping the freezer stocked with easy-to-make meals is what I’m all about. Recently, I’ve been reaching for Ling Ling Frozen Entrees and just yesterday we test drove two varieties: Thai-Style Chicken and Yakiniku Beef. Who says you have to choose!
Ling Ling Yakiniku Beef Fried Rice
Know what a Yakiniku restaurant is? In Japan, it’s a unique way of dining in that guests get to grill their own meat and veggies. By grilling, both the beef and vegetables stay tender and delicious.
Ling Ling Yakiniku Beef is prepared the same way, trust me. Mr. Locke ate an entire plate full and practically licked it clean.
Ling Ling Thai-Style Chicken Fried Rice
Have I ever mentioned that I’m the queen of the phrase “I’ll have the chicken”? So, happily, I tried the second of the two Ling Ling chicken fried rice varieties, Thai-Style. Sweeter than its Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice, it’s made with coconut milk and has juicy pieces of pineapple, leeks, and red bell peppers.
All the Ling Ling Varieties
Ling Ling has five unique Fried Rice dishes (just in case these two aren’t your bag), and each is 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, my local Walmart is selling all of the Frozen Fried Rice styles.
Yeah. All natural, too. So, on those days that I want to be as relaxed as possible Ling Ling entrees are a great alternative. I found that the Fried Rice varieties taste so similar to the kind we get at our local Chinese food restaurant that it’s really hard to tell the difference.
Bonus: head to the official Ling Ling website, and you can score a coupon for $2 off any Ling Ling Fried Rice, Noodles, or Dumplings.
