This Perfect White Rice Recipe, which provides a foolproof method for how to make white rice, is the perfect side dish for P.F. Chang’s delicious Home Menu items, and turns a regular weeknight dinner into a fun Wok Wednesday.
Every cook should master making the Perfect White Rice Recipe. It really could not be easier and goes with a variety of foods. I like to prepare the rice ahead of time and freeze it to have it available with other quick and easy meals. Perfectly cooked white rice is my favorite side dish for Asian entrees. And while I would love to prepare a full meal every weeknight, it does not always happen.
It is inevitable. No matter how well I think I have planned my meals for the week, something happens. I forget to take the meat out of the freezer, or one of us has to work late, or gets stuck in traffic, and then I am tired and am in no mood to cook. Sometimes I’m not in the mood for the meal that I planned. Life happens. Since we try to watch our pennies, I don’t want to just go out to eat on a weeknight. That is why I like to keep some quick and easy frozen meals in the freezer for times like these.
I am very happy that I recently found P.F. Chang’s Home Menu in the frozen food aisle of my grocery store (and can be found in the frozen food aisle of grocery stores nationwide.) Perfectly paired for two, it allows us to create our own menu, from delicious appetizers, to yummy sides and the bold main dishes that both Mr. Flavor Mosaic and I love.
These are no ordinary frozen dinners. The P.F. Chang’s Home Menu were designed by P.F. Chang’s founder Philip Chiang himself, and use quality ingredients such as beef, white meat chicken breast or shrimp with crisp colorful vegetables and bold sauces and aromas.
I love that they have a variety of exciting bold flavors that save me time when preparing dinner yet allow me to provide a delicious meal with the bold flavors that we love such as Mongolian Beef or Orange Chicken. They have so many flavors to choose from that you will never get bored. I like to keep them on hand all the time now for some authentic Asian meals.
To turn a weeknight into #WokWednesday, I like to whip up my Perfect White Rice to go with the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu entrees. It makes a complete meal and tastes fantastic.

Perfect White Rice Recipe
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups water
- In a medium sauce, over high heat, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, reduce the heat to medium high, stir in rice and salt and return to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low so it will simmer. Cover and cook for about 16 to 18 minutes until rice is tender and has absorbed all the water.
- Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 10 minutes. Then fluff with a fork and serve.
