    Got tired of cooking rice, so decided to pick some up. 2 minutes to microwave and the taste is pretty :bowdown:.

    Anything wrong with replacing plain brown rice with this?

    Is this the one you just put in the microwave for 90sec and it steams up?

    If so, this stuff is awesomely convenient and tastes good. Too bad that in the last year they raised the prices by over 100% and the stuff is way too expensive now.
     
  5. 90 seconds! :eek4:

    I have these uncle ben's boil in a bag rice that take 10 mins and I thought that was fast. :o

    They're pretty good too with some salt and pepper added... Just kinda expensive now. They used to be $1.39 per package, now that shit is like $2.79 and it only makes like 2 cups (cooked!).
     
  7. $2.80 for rice. :ugh: Fuck that....

    Yeah bro... using Burger King as your cheat meal is poor decision making. At least make it a huge pizza, huge burger, or popeyes :)
