#LoveTakesTime: Purefoods Ready-to-Eat Viands


Everyone loves a home-cooked meal. Living with my sister who can't even perfect cooking hotdogs, I am tasked to prepare meals for the two of us. I prefer cooking rather than ordering takeout food. It is a healthier choice and it brings out the inner 'master chef' in me whenever I try to experiment cooking something for the first time. But yeah, I've been kind of a little busy lately because I had to go back working on site and do not have the luxury of time to prepare and cook meals. Good thing I recently discovered PUREFOODS® Ready-to-eat viands. Now we can still enjoy delicious, slow-cooked meals at a fraction of a time.


These ready-to-eat viands from Purefoods feature our well-loved Pinoy dishes: Beef Caldereta, Beef Pares, Bistek Tagalog, Bicol Express, Chicken Afritada, Kare-kare, Lechon Paksiw, Pork Binagoongan and Pork Humba. These dishes are slow-cooked and expertly prepared by Purefoods. It is ready in as fast as 8 minutes- heat it in the microwave or stovetop. It is already delectable as it is but you can also add your favorite choice of veggies. I pair it with a steaming cup of rice and I'm solved!

A piquant meal takes love and time to make , from preparing to cooking, and then serving to the family. These slow-cooked meals from Purefoods have all the flavors sealed; the food experience is truly reminiscent of home. No more lengthy prepping and cooking time, it only takes 8 minutes to have a pleasant meal. Now I can enjoy the extra time for myself and my family, because love takes time.


I have tasted all the viands except for Beef Pares. I like that everything's of excellent flavour and consistency. To be honest, I wasn't really expecting too much from it from the start. You know this thing about ready-to-eat meals, most of them are so-so. PUREFOODS® Ready-to-eat viands exceeded my expectations! Believe me; it can please even the most finicky gourmand. I also received a lot of great feedbacks when I had this posted in my social media account. Those who have bought it already found it to be really rich and savoury.

My personal favorites are Bistek Tagalog and Kare-Kare. The meat is really tender, the sauce was sultry, and each bite provides a forkful of comfort and flavour. It's a tantalizing treat that will make any food lover drool. I mean, what could be more than delicious than a Kare-Kare? Who needs a love life when you have Purefoods Ready-to-eat Bistek Tagalog ?
