Sancocho stew in thermal lunch jar

Newer Older

This is a deconstructed view of just the rice container for this lunch. Morning prep time: 8 minutes each (15 minutes for two lunches). What's unique about this lunch is the way I packed the stew and rice in my thermal lunch jar. When packing hot stew (or curry, etc.) in the bottom of the rice container, if you pack a layer of rice on top of the stew to create a rice "lid": 1) it keeps both rice and stew warm, 2) you're able to enjoy both flavors separately, and 3) it keeps the liquidy stew from leaking if the lunch container is manhandled in transit. This is particularly helpful with my large thermal lunch jars, as the biggest container is for rice, and the seal on the lid is not water-tight. Full details here.

    That tip was terrific, for I packed my first lunch jar yesterday and used Kung Pao chicken "on top of the rice"!!!! (how dumb is that?) of course it leaked a little. lol

    Next time I will surely remember this tip of yours.
    Thanks a lot!

    (P.S. been browsing your lunch pics... great ideas!)
