Honeyville's Flavored-Like Beef Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) is actually a meat analogue product made through a special extrusion process which provides a 100% vegetable product that approaches the taste and texture of meat. This highly nutritious vegetarian meat substitute is processed from defatted soy flour which contains more than 52% protein and 18% total dietary fiber. TVP has been used for many years in U.S. Food Nutritional Service programs and has been an integral part of the School Lunch program. Because of the recognized health and nutritional benefit of soy protein in the diet and the added benefit of low moisture and low fat content, Honeyville Flavored-like Beef TVP is an ideal product for long term food storage and emergency preparedness.

Shelf-Life: Beef Flavored TVP will store for 10 to 20 years in a sealed #10 can (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). Once opened, it has an average shelf life of 6 to 12 months.

Instructions:  Add one part textured vegetable protein to one part hot water. Allow beef TVP to hydrate for about 15 minutes. Adding ½ cup textured vegetable protein to ½ cup of water will yield about 1 cup of cooked meat substitute.

Uses:  Beef Flavored TVP can be used separately or in combination with meat as an effective meat extender in burritos, tacos, soups, pastas and more.

decent

I just opened a can from about 3 years ago in storage. Overall it's easy to use. I used it in a backpacking dehydrated stew meal to add some meat and protein. It rehydrates to look like cooked ground beef. The flavor is a little bland but i haven't experimented with adding certain seasonings. I just rehydrated it and threw it into a stew to see the result will experiment as time goes on. Overall not a bad buy i would prefer to have freeze dried beef but this is a economical alterntive. Thanks Honeyville!

TVP

I was excited to see you had the TYP but it was a dissapointment when I saw it had partially Hydrogenated oil in it. I won't buy it because of that.

I always make chili for my co-workers. The last time I wanted to make it I forgot to thraw the hamburger. That morning I was in a panic when thought about the beef TVP I had ordered. I used the beef TVP and no one noticed the difference. When I told them there was no meat in the chili they did not believe me. You have a great product! I also purchased the ham and chicken TVP

Good product - would recommend.

My wife and I have been using this for spaghetti sauce for the last 2 months. We've found that adding a little liquid smoke while hydrating the granules works great. Now picking up the ham flavour to see how that goes with eggs as a breakfast food. Mouth texture is quite similar to beef - reminds me particulary of the small pieces of beef in the Boy-R-Dee overstuffed ravioli - and who knows could actually be the same. Will sop up flavour of any additional highly spiced foods - have used with liquid smoke garlic boullion cubes etc.

A healthy alternative

This product provides a tasty and healthy alternative to eating ground beef. And personally I have found the TVP product to be nothing less than --- amazing! And If I learned one simple thing about preparing it that I could share it would be to rehydrate the TVP with boiling water in a separate bowl. I have become a regular eater of this product because of the high protein content and the delicious taste. Almost everyday I combine this product with pasta and spaghetti sauce. It does make some pretty good tacos and I even used it a few times with those "just add hamburger" dinners. You can season this stuff to taste for whatever your making and do anything that you could with ground hamburger. But the only drawback is I haven't figured out how to make a cheeseburger with this stuff.

Pretty Good

I use these whenever I make tacos or anything that uses ground beef for that matter. Mix with equal parts of real ground beef. My husband can usually tell but not the kids. Definiitely helps save money and stretch our meat budget! I'm a little leary to try the chicken/ham tvp but the meat is definitely great!
