Boil-in-Bag Long Grain White Rice has been my friend as of late as my kitchen has been renovated and my only source of cooking appliances has been my microwave or electric wok, and having no running water in the kitchen either!! so the added appeal of an easy rice cooking container clean-up was brilliant......pop Boil-in-Bag Long Grain White Rice into a microwave safe dish and presto a yummy free flowing rice to have for a no fuss and instant dinner.
There is always enough Boil-in-Bag Long Grain White Rice left to take for my lunch the next day saving on time which is always a precious thing in the morning. Plus Boil-in-Bag Long Grain White Rice is always filling and nutritious and will not stick or clump together when cooked, sometimes sticky rice is the worst to eat.
If the instructions are followed correctly the rice turns out perfect each and every time, and even though the price is a lot for a little amount of rice the no fuss cook and no fuss clean it offers can outweigh the amount you had to pay for it. Plus Uncle Ben's is a known and trusted brand of rice and with the added benefit of Uncle Ben's unique rice preparation method, parboiling, which steams the vitamins and minerals from the outer layer into the the centre of the grain, you know it is good for you as well.
I recommend Boil-in-Bag Long Grain White Rice for all the people who enjoy good rice with easy preparation and super easy and super quick cleanup afterwards.
Boil in the bag rice is so easy, makes the wee knight rush dinner so easy! No more dirty pots - such a bonus for the person cleaning up (me!!) I find that these cook to perfection when cooked according to the packet directions.
The downside to the boil in a bag rice is that is is more expensive that other rice, and Uncle Bens only do long grain rice and not other types such as basmatior Jasmine that we tend to use more often. Boil in the bag rice tastes like rice my mum cooks, so its perfect comfort food for me!
Great product if you are in a hurry. Its not the cheapest option, but by far the easiest. My hubby takes this to work as its quick and clean to make with his favourite tuna and sauce.
It has been a long time since I last cooked rice. I hate trying to scrub the pots clean so have a strong aversion to it. A shame, because it compliments many of the dishes I enjoy cooking for company.
So when I spotted these in a huge display at the local supermarket I thought they looked worth a try. After all, it's a small investment to make for such a highly appealing possible outcome; Finally being able to prepare some old favourites again, right when the diet is starting to get a bit dull.
Found a pot, filled, heated, dropped in bag, boiled for 15 minutes... and presto! perfectly cooked rice that, sure enough, didn't stick, tasted great, and was really easy to prepare.
The only issue I had was that the slit in the seal at one end of the bag, used to stick the fork through to lift out the bag, was rather difficult to locate in a pot of steaming, boiling water.
Perhaps if they had increased the slit to cover almost the entire width, perhaps 80-90% and offset in such a way that one end could be torn loose while the other remained firm, thus providing a 'ribbon handle' to hang over the edge of the pot... easier to locate and cool to the touch (hopefully.)
Overall, a great innovation and a pleasure to be back in the kitchen experimenting with the herbs and spices, dishes and designs. Cheers Uncle... :)
