I love rice. I include it in many of my homemade dishes and recipes. Recently, I came across Birds Eye Steamfresh Brown Rice, in the frozen food section of my local grocery store. I decided to purchase this brown rice, try it out and write an unbiased review about it. Here is what I discovered when testing this rice out with my new Zojirushi NS-TSC10 5-1/2-Cup (Uncooked) Micom Rice Cooker.
I actually purchased this rice because a family member of mine said that she loved it. I am not that big of a brown rice fan but, I do use this type of rice in some of my homemade recipes. I discovered that Birds Eye Steamfresh Brown Rice is affordable. I purchased a two and one half serving bag of this rice for few dollars. This is a steamfresh product and it has a steam fast microwave cooking method. The bag says that this is a perfect microwave cooking system and who was I to argue that fact? I have tried other Birds Eye Steamfresh food products and I have absolutely loved many of them. They taste fresh and cook really quickly.
Birds Eye Steamfresh Brown Rice is 100 % whole grain. It is low fat, low in cholesterol and low in sodium. I loved all of those nutritional facts. The preparation of this brown rice is simple. I only had to place the bag in my microwave oven, cook on high for four minutes and let stand for one minute. I then tore the bag open, poured it into a dish and served. Wow, that was easy! This rice did smell good. I served it with beef gravy, roast and baked potatoes. This rice is great. It cooked perfectly. It was not sticky or dry. It really pleased me. This is a great product. No boiling water or straining. This brown rice is delicious, simple and very easy to cook.
I rate Birds Eye Steamfresh Brown Rice four and one half stars out of five stars. I loved this product. I do think that there should be at least three full servings in each bag for the money that I spent. Even so, I will be buying this product again. It did save me valuable time spent in the kitchen. I am not that great at boiling rice to perfect perfection and if you are like me, you will appreciate the ease of preparing this product. It is hard to go wrong. That is great, in my opinion.
