REVIEW: Betty Crocker Asian Hamburger Helper Mongolian-Style Beef

Written by | February 25, 2009

Topics: 6 Rating, Asian

I just want to make clear that the Betty Crocker Asian Hamburger Helper Mongolian-Style Beef and its other flavors are not part of some big conspiracy for Asian Domination.

Oh wait.

Why did I capitalize the D in “Domination”? It makes it look like a code name for something, which it is totally not. If I had typed “Operation Asian Domination,” and something cryptic along with it, like “All salamanders in apples need some Rogaine under leggy eyes,” then maybe it might look like all the Asians, except North Korea, are coming together to take over the world. But that IS NOT the case.

The Betty Crocker Asian Hamburger Helper Mongolian-Style Beef is just an easy-to-make dish and the eyebrows on the Hamburger Helper glove are not slanted eyes, his eyes are not nostrils, and his nose is not a gigantic zit. All you need is a pound of ground beef, 2 3/4 cups of hot water, and, of course, the ingredients contained in the box. Within 20 minutes, you’ll have a dish that native Mongolians will not recognize at all, because the Mongolian Beef dish is an American creation.

Betty Crocker is not trying to deceive you, just like Asians aren’t trying to swindle you by infiltrating various aspects of society to bring it crashing down two weeks from today. People love Jackie Chan, the number one golfer in the world is half-Asian, there’s a Korean on Grey’s Anatomy, my doppleganger is on CBS’s The Mentalist, there are Japanese players in Major League Baseball, Olivia Munn is half-Chinese, there are over a thousand Panda Express locations across the United States, Rob Schneider is half-Filipino, sushi and karaoke bars are all over, and many women learned a new Japanese word, Harajuku, but all of that does not equate to Asians wanting to rule the world and force everyone to drive fuel-efficient Toyota, Honda, Kia, or Hyundai cars two weeks from today.

Besides, how can the Betty Crocker Asian Hamburger Helper Mongolian-Style Beef be part of an Asian conspiracy to take over the world when it doesn’t taste Asian. It was all right tasting, but it tasted more like Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff than any Asian dish. The pasta noodles were gummy and the addition of freeze-dried peas and carrots seemed unnecessary since they didn’t add anything to the flavor.

So to all the non-Asians out there, you don’t have to worry about an Operation Asian Domination because it’s just silly to think Asians would want to take over the world. To all the Asians out there, All salamanders in apples need some Rogaine under leggy eyes, two weeks from today.

    With this new Asian Helper, there shouldn’t be a problem in neighborhoods with stray dogs.

    Who decided hamburger needed help in the first place? Meat. Fire. What’s to help?

    As for conspiracies, if anybody were smart enough to successfully take over the world, they’d be smart enough to not want any part of it.

  3. Julie says:

    @Woodenhand: It also sounds like a professional wrestling pay-per-event.

    @Molly: I ate it and kept it down, until the fiber kicked in and then it went down even more.

    @Neil the hammer: it’s not a dream.

    @Sarah: Awesome!

    @Domokun: I am also fine with being dominated by an Asian, as long as I don’t have to pay the price for being dominated by an Asian.

    @Julie: SHHHHHH!!!

    @Shannon: Ewww2.

    @CBara: Yes, it’s an ancient Filipino secret.

    @skibs: I’m sure you’ll find it and then bow down to your Asian masters.
