When Lis contacted me about doing a product review for Thai Kitchen/Simply Asia I was both excited and nervous. They wanted a feature on “party” foods for the Chinese New Year, which is a fun feature, but I’m not exactly a pro at Asian foods, and the more I thought about it the more nervous I got. I wasn’t sure what kind of products they were going to send me, and how I was going to “create” a recipe based on what they sent me!
I should have known to be more trusting, though! The great people at Thai Kitchen/Simply Asia sent me a wonderful package of products (all that I was familiar with) and even sent me a packet of recipes to work from, too! Can’t be easier than that!
The products themselves were great – all high quality, and for the most part they were made with ingredients I could pronounce, spell, and even recognize, and they all tasted great. I finally chose two of the recipes that they sent me, and just happened to be able to use all of the products, too. I decided to make General Tsao’s Meatballs, Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce, and then I also used some leftover coconut milk to make Coconut Rice!
The General Tsao’s Meatballs were probably my favorite of all the recipes. They were super easy and quick to put together and tasted SOOOO good! We took them to our Superbowl party and they were gone so fast!
The Chicken Satay we made for dinner one night, along with the Coconut Rice. They were good, too. They were very flavorful, and the dipping sauce was great, too – nice flavor with just a hint of heat. The coconut rice was also a fun and easy addition!
Here are some links for the recipes Jenni used and enjoyed during her review:
Whether entertaining a crowd or an everyday dinner with the family, Simply Asia Stir-Fry Sauces are the perfect way to create Real Asia, Real Fast at home.
