I previously wrote an article about the Lucerne Eating Right ravioli frozen dinner and was overwhelmed by the response. Apparently many people feel very positively about the Lucerne Eating Right brand and strongly disagreed with my assessment of the ravioli frozen dinner. One person even commented that I must be very narrow minded to give the entire brand a thumbs down after trying only one product. Since I do not believe I am narrow minded, love to eat healthy and like it was pointed out to me, my husband and children did not feel as strongly as I did about the poor taste of the product, I decided to try another meal and see if I came to another opinion.
One night while our children were spending the night at a friend’s house, my husband and I found ourselves without kids to feed and an empty refrigerator. Off we went to the grocery store, and not wanting to spend the bulk of our free evening in the kitchen,spied the Lucerne Eating Right frozen dinner display. The Beef Teriyaki meal has a very appetizing looking package and with the blue circle code on the front which indicates that this product is high in protein, my husband decided this should be our dinner for the night.
The Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki meal couldn’t be any simpler to prepare. There are instructions on the back to prepare the meal in a pan or in the microwave. The pan method requires a tablespoon of vegetable oil or non stick cooking spray. Since I was out of cooking spray and did not want to add the oil, I chose the microwave method. The Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki frozen meal comes with a sauce packet that must be held under warm running water to thaw. Using a microwave safe dish with a lid, the beef and vegetables get placed in the covered container and microwaved on high for five minutes. The beef and vegetables then get stirred, recovered and nuked for an additional six minutes. After stirring the thawed sauce into the beef and vegetables, the dish gets microwaved for an additional minute. The Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki frozen meal needs to stand for a minute or two before serving.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the delicious taste of this product. The Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki meal is truly very tasty and quite satisfying. With tons of broccoli, baby carrots, water chestnuts and string beans, the vegetables were plentiful and the perfect balance of crispness and softness. The beef pieces were just enough to add bulk to the meal. The beef teriyaki sauce was flavorful and not too salty. It truly was an enjoyable meal.
Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki frozen meal came in a twenty four ounce bag which fed my husband and myself nicely. With three servings per package, each serving was a meager one hundred and eighty calories with only three point five calories from fat. With fifteen grams of protein, eighty percent of Vitamin A and thirty five percent of Vitamin C, this product was absolutely nutritious and tasty. All of this flavor and goodness for $4.99 on sale. Can’t beat that!
I was quite impressed with the Lucerne Eating Right Beef Teriyaki frozen meal. My opinion on the ravioli frozen dinner still stands. I found that product to be extremely unappetizing. Would I buy the Beef Teriyaki meal again? Absolutely. Basically, I take back my previous thumbs down on this entire product brand and conclude that each product is a matter of taste.
