One of my favorite parts of take-out Asian food is the side of fried rice. it goes with everything from short ribs to steamed crabs. The problem with fried rice is that it can be a bit laborious to make at home, especially when you are making a main course to go with it.
That’s why the new lines of Ling Ling Fried Rice, which is already premade with all the vegetables and seasonings and ready to heat, makes for the perfect addition to your meal that is simple to make and inspired by authentic Asian inspired recipes from Japan, China, Korea and Thailand.
The Chinese-Style Vegetable makes for a perfect side or try the Yakitori Chicken, Yakiniku Beef, Thai-Style Chicken or Bibimbap Beef as an easy main course. Each grain of rice is infused during the cooking process with their signature sauces that gives incredible flavor in every bite. We found Ling Ling in the frozen foods section of our local grocery store.
We chose to pair Ling Ling Fried Rice, which features edamame, carrots, fire roasted corn and red bell peppers, all tossed in a traditional soy-based sauce, with one of my favorite Asian-inspired dishes: spicy tempura shrimp.
