For a long term storage option, Mountain House is one of the finer tasting brands. Price reduction makes this a great choice.
I ordered a large selection of sample packs to try & see what we liked. To make a long story short, I only took a small amount out of the pot to try & left some for my wife to try needless to say when I went back to get the rest of my half of the food my wife had already ate the rest of it. So yes all the foods we have tried so far have been really good & we are thinking about buying a supply to keep on hand just to fix for a quick meal at night.
I love beef stews, but hate the time it takes to prepare homemade ones. Now I have a choice. This entree is delicious. The taste is just right for my husband. I find it a little on the salty side, since I hardly use any salt. So I just add some freeze dried veggies to mine. Still no cooking involved. This is great if you have unexpected guests staying for dinner. Instead of rushing to the store, I open my pantry and go through my stash of freeze dried entrees!! Its like having a cook in the pantry. Just wonderful.
It's priced a little hight but it makes up for it in taste. Add to rice for a full meal.
Great taste. Price is high but a good deal on sale. You might want to had hot sauce to spice it up a bit.
Great hardy meal
This was just perfect and love that it lasts so long. This will be divine to use in emergencies, like we're eating out or I spent all day in the kitchen.
One of my favorites!
This is one of my favorite soups! Long shelf life means you can store it and forget it. Beef stew is one of my comfort foods, so this will definately help out in the event my family needs it!
This isn't a bad price for a Mountain House product, especially one with meat. This is hearty and delicious, especially during cold winter power outages.
Hearty, quite tasty, and cheap!
The Mountain House Beef Stew is a fantastic stew! It is delicious and comes with plenty of vegetables. Love the can size for my home storage.
Really great stew and good value
This is very great stew and very meaty just like you made it . It is also a very good value and a real good value when on sale. We have this in our food storage in mutiple cans and will cont to add more.
liked the flavor
This is as close to actual stew that I have tried and tasted so far, the (meat) is a little rubbery but is all through out the stew and with pleanty of veggies...
I added 2 1/2 cups more water than it called for, a 1/2 cup marinara sauce mix and some pre-cooked pasta elbows , salt to taste and ta da mock minestrone soup ..
Info on this Meal!
Buy in a pouch before hand and then you will know what is needed. Most h20 estimates and soak time are off as is the case here. This is no big deal for me as I add Rice anyway. Add HOT water - let soak for 20mins. That should do a pouch - taste it - If it needs more add some. Make Notes ON THE CAN when you buy it. This is a good meal starte! Taste is above average.
Not a lot of servings
Again, only 10 servings? Saratoga Farms is so much better when it comes to price and quantity. Tastes about the same.
Not Bad - Would serve the purpose
Agree with other reviewer that the meat is a little rubbery. I'd recommend adding more water than they recommend on the package. Mixed mine with a half cup of white rice.
