Wanchai Ferry Beef and Broccoli Review and #Giveaway...

Thanks to Wanchai Ferry and My Blog Spark, my husband and I had the opportunity to try the not yet released Beef and Broccoli meal. If you haven't heard of the Wanchai Ferry line, it's the quick and simple way to prepare Chinese for two at home.

Love Chinese food but don't feel like going out? Let me introduce you to Wanchai Ferry. Found in your grocery store's freezer section, Wanchai Ferry comes complete with everything you need to make a variety of restaurant quality Chinese food in 15 minutes or less.

This was my first experience with the Wanchai Ferry line and I really appreciate that it's quick and simple to prepare. In the bag, there's your beef and vegetables and two other pouches; one that contains rice, and the other that contains the sauce. The instructions on the bag are simple, and if followed in order, everything will be ready together. It took about a total of 12 minutes to have everything ready to plate.

Though it's a frozen meal, everything had a fresh taste. I really appreciated the texture of everything as well. The beef was tender, the watercress and broccoli crunchy, and the rice, well let me just say I wish my rice would come out just as it did everytime, because it was absolutely perfect. They even have meal tips at their website to enhance your Wanchai Ferry Meal which include things that you can add into your meal, and side dish suggestions.

My husband and I were a little split on the taste. He says it was good just the way it was. I thought the sauce was a little over bearing and took away from the taste of the other components of the dish.

My final thoughts? I would eat this again, but probably not use the entire packet of sauce. I would love to be able to try out some of the other Wanchai Ferry varieties which include Orange Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Spicy Garlic Chicken and Sweet and Sour Chicken...all with NO added MSG. Also keep watching for Kung Pao Chicken and Szechuan Style Chicken, which should be arriving soon.
