Uncle Ben's Ready Rice Review & -Rafflecopter- Giveaway-- ENDED

We eat rice at least 4 days out of a week. Because I typically make Chinese food for my family, rice is an important stable at my house. I usually make about 3 cups of (uncooked) rice each night, that's just enough for DD, DH and myself for dinner and DH for lunch the following day. I prefer making brown rice, but they do take longer to cook. Although I have seen Uncle Ben's Ready Rice on supermarket shelves before, I never picked them up. In my mind, I just did not think that any rice that comes precooked and ready to go in a package could taste any good. When I was contacted by Uncle Ben's to review their products, I thought I would finally give them a try.
Because I wasn't really sure about the Uncle Ben's Ready Rice working out. I mean, it is hard to believe that you just heat something up for 90 seconds and it actually tastes good, so I ended up making some rice of my own before putting Uncle Ben's Rice on the stove top to heat it up with some water. 
It took me about 30 minutes to my own rice but just a couple of minutes to heat up Uncle Ben's Ready Rice on the stove top. When I served my rice along with Uncle Ben's rice to my family that night, they could could not even tell the difference. So, there you have it, I was totally wrong about Uncle Ben's Ready Rice. In less than a couple of minutes, you could have tasty rice to go with your dishes. Now that I know it is just as good as the rice I normally make and it could save me so much time in the time, I will be stocking up my pantry with it for sure!

To buy your own Uncle Ben's Ready Rice, please visit your local supermarkets. Be sure to check out Uncle Ben's for coupons before you do your shopping.

Many thanks to Uncle Ben's. The company has generously offered a couple of their products as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky reader. This giveaway ends on October 19th, 2011.
