Not Bad

I ordered a small can, for trial purposes. It's not bad...a little bland on it's own (no more so than dicing and boiling a beef roast without any seasonings), but pretty good when added to other foods such as soups, casseroles, and sauces. I think adding a bit of Worcestershire sauce or powdered spices--such as chili, onion or garlic--to the water if re-hydrating the diced beef prior to using it would really kick up the flavor.
As far as economy goes...I don't think it's any pricier in the long run than fresh beef from the supermarket. And the convenience of not having to keep it under refrigeration, and reduced amount of spacer needed for storage is worth the extra cost.

Great for Off-Grid

We're off-grid in the Alaskan bush and shelf-stable food is a daily use item. The Honeyville Beef Dices are excellent for soups, stews, chili and stir-fries. Unlike many of the other freeze-dried meats, the Beef Dices aren't very fragile and have almost no breakage or dust. The Ham and Beef Dices are the most difficult to rehydrate properly, and can be a bit chewy if not soaked in warm water or simmered for awhile beforehand.

Works and tastes great in a multitude of recipes.Two of our favorite uses for the Beef Dices are added with thick mushroom gravy over mashed potatoes and marinated with soy sauce then stir-fried with rice and bell peppers. We also use it for chili, mixed half-n-half with the freeze-dried Ground Beef... the chunks add the meaty punch and the ground beef really makes it thick and hearty.

It's a little spendy, but much more economical than running the generator to keep a freezer full of meat long term or buying 10-12 oz canned roast beef in gravy (which are often more gravy than meat).

diced beef

I really like these. I made a sweet potato chili with these beef dices and it was outstanding. The beef does, at the outset, have a processed taste, but I find them easy to work with, and they absorb the spices I'm working with. I have no complaints. My chili was amazing!

Edible but not so great

We were not so thrilled with is edible but not so great....almost has a processed taste. I was hoping that this was as good as the chicken dices which we love but it does not. I will be buying canned beef for my long term storage from now on.
