Taste

I did not find this to be a spicy dish. In fact, I could not tell what spices had been added for flavor. The teriyaki sauce was on the mild side. This is not the teriyaki sauce you would expect to find in hundreds of restaurants across the U.S. However, I thought it was delicious.

You could taste the red peppers and peas. I could see the bamboo shoots, but did not really taste them. I mean they didn’t stand out. The rice was fine. Even though the rice was precooked (says it on the package), it wasn’t mushy when rehydrated. I could not tell that there was sherry wine in the sauce. But that means they did a good job of cooking. Sometimes when wine is added to a dish, it isn’t properly reduced, so it’s a little overpowering. Not the case here.

I prepared this dish according to the instructions. You might want to experiment with adding a bit less water. That would probably tighten the sauce up a bit.

Leftovers

This was a one serving pouch, but I did save some to have leftover, just so I could comment on it. Like all Mountain House entrees I have had, this dish tasted great leftover. So, if you had this dish in your food storage, it would also taste good the second time around.

Bottom Line

This was a very good dish. It wasn’t my favorite Mountain House entree, but that is a personal issue, and doesn’t reflect at all on how well it would fit into a backpacking trip or a food storage program. I would have no problem eating it in any situation.

All in all, this dish lives up the high standards you can experience from any of the Mountain House Freeze Dried Foods.
