This is nothing new. I have purchased canned ground beef in the past. In fact, last summer during my 2 week stint at Ft Meade, I cooked chili on top of a 30 KW generator engine using canned ground beef for lunch one day. Once you get past its appearance (reminds me of canned dog food, but smells better!), it is quite good.

There is another outfit making pre-cooked ground beef sealed in foil envelopes just like the tuna fish you see in the market. The ground beef is quite tasty, especially the Italian-seasoned meat when mixed into a Spaghetti or Chili Mac MRE. Very Happy

Nothing new. I have had canned beef in the past too. I bet it is a family member of AOL-Time Warner getting some free publicity.

I'm not sure if this is a sign of dementia, but I liked the MREs I've had. They were surprisingly good.

I have found an outfit (Longlifefoods) on the Internet who sells fresh MREs. I buy the entrees and sides individually and "kit them up" with my vacuum sealer. It ensures that I have what I like and nothing goes to waste (and it doesn't send my blood sugar through the roof!).

Another good, quick meal in the field is the Heater Meal. They have a couple of self-heating meals - the pepper steak is especially good. Cool

Pepper steak, eh? That does sound delicious. I had a corn beef hash one that was self heating, and it was quite 'teh tasty'. I'm going to have to go to that site and check them out.

mmmmmMREs
