    Default The worst flavor of Hamburger Helper® ever

    I like Hamburger Helper® every once in a while. I've been kind of
    overdoing it with my diet this week* and I was Jonesing for
    something starchy with some protein in it. And I had a couple of
    boxes of HH in the pantry, so...

    "Asian (Hamburger) Helper" Mongolian-Style Beef. :-P It's a new
    flavor, and I sure hope it doesn't last long. I don't know what's
    Asian about it, unless it's because it's kind of sweet -- the next
    ingredient after the noodles is sugar -- but it cooks up into a
    thick paste. I ate a couple of bites and then had a bowl of radish
    soup for lunch instead.

    I shredded a half a head of cabbage and added that to loosen it up.
    Not sure if I'll eat it (with a bunch of cayenne and garlic added
    to hide the taste) or if the dog will get most of it.

    Bob


    *I haven't been counting calories, but Thursday night I added 'em up
    to see why I was so hungry -- I had only had about 600 to 650
    calories that day.

    Bob, if it is that bad, I'd not waste additional ingredients on it. Been
    there, done that, always regretted wasting more.

    Turning it into dog food is a good solution sometimes. <g>

    Give the other box to the food bank...

    Isn't "Mongolian-Style Beef" a slab of raw dead cow that has been riding
    around squished under the saddle of your horse all day?

    That is not enough calories, I can see why you were hungry. I cooked
    Hamburger Helper when I was a teenager, but I haven't cooked it sense
    then. Here is a big shocker, I have never cooked Rice -a -Roni before.
    I always wondered what I was missing. I still don't know. lol

    Rice-a-Roni isn't that great. I actually have a box of the previously
    mentioned HH in my cupboard right now. I don't recall how long it's
    been there, but I only do HH once in a GREAT while, and I always seem
    to regret it when I do. lol

    I buy HH when the boxes are on sale for $1. I saw this new flavor a
    few weeks ago when they were on sale and they suckered me. :-)

    The "Beef Pasta" flavor and the "Salisbury" are OK. Not something I
    would want to eat more than a couple of times per month. But
    generally if you want that kind of meal you're better off using a
    blue box of macaroni and cheese mix and following the basic
    directions for HH. (it tastes better and it's cheaper) Don't ask me
    how I know this...

    I lived on Hamburger Helper when I was in college. I guess they're
    okay if you're in a hurry and really don't feel like cooking but
    they're not something I would want to eat om a regular basis. That
    Mongolian-Style beef one sounds horrible. Of course the key word here
    is "Style". Exactly what do they mean by "Style"?

    If it's that bad, the dog won't eat it either. That's when you have to
    worry! ;-)

    not in the current usage:

    The Mongolian barbecue often found in restaurants is a style of cooking
    falsely attributed to the mobile lifestyle of nomadic Mongolians. Having
    its origins in Taiwan in the mid to late 20th century, the so-called
    "Mongolian barbecue", a popular dish in American and Canadian Chinese
    restaurants, consists of thinly sliced lamb, beef, chicken, pork, or other
    meat, seasonings, vegetables, and noodles, or a combination thereof, that
    are quickly cooked over a flat circular metal surface that has been heated.

    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_variations_of_barbecue#Mongolia>

    'mongolian barbecues' are fairly common in the d.c. area (and elsewhere,
    i'm sure). typically, the diner selects the type of meat and vegetables
    and a sauce, and it is cooked form him on a hot griddle, like japanese
    *teppanyaki* or koean *bulgogi* (which see).

    My mother watched a Bob Barker game show, so I watched it if I was home
    from school. The prizes they gave away were Rice-a-Roni, Turtle Wax and
    Jungle Gardenia perfume. The only one I ever tried was Turtle Wax, but
    after all these years, this useless information is still crammed in my
    brain.

    I am so glad that none of my current three dogs are coprophiliacs. I
    used to have a dog that was. Feeding her canned food helped prevent it
    somewhat, but not 100%.

    You'd give that to your DOG? Take pity, I beg you!

    You're brave. I haven't ever been able to try one - the picture of
    that "cheeseburger" one has totally ruined any chance that I'll ever
    try one. ;-)
