This is a very quick and easy dinner we had after running a few errands. After deciding grabbing something out was not really on our idea of tasty, we opted to rather eat something at home … so eat something at home we did. Since nothing was out and ready to cook, we went to the handy dandy freezer and grabbed a few items that could be cooked up and served. This is totally an “on the fly” type of meal, but regardless it was tasty.
The greatest part was that the entire meal was super easy and quick to throw together. Dinner was ready and served in 15 minutes or less … much quicker than the pizza delivery guy! The rice and pork could be cooked in the microwave or on the stove top. After prepping the dish, I decided to use canned green and wax beans as our vegetable side. The entire meal was 11 points plus. Even with the added sodium from this being a frozen meal, it was filling, tasty and did the job!
I had 1 cup of InnovAsian Cuisine’s Caramelized Ginger Pork for 7 points plus. I had 1 cup of Trader Joe’s Vegetable Fried Rice for 4 points plus and I had a little under 1 cup of canned green and wax beans.
The pork was surprisingly pretty good – I was a little hesitant thinking it was going to be chewy and tough, but it wasn’t. The sauce was flavorful with a little zip in the background from the ginger. The rice is delicious – it’s one of my favorites and is constantly a repurchase item from Trader Joe’s. Overall, this meal got 2 thumbs up,.
