Protein is not the only benefit of beef but also zinc, iron, and B vitamins. Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Ground Beef is the best choice for emergency preparedness and everyday cooking, seeing as the main source of protein in the average daily diet comes from meat.

Shelf-Life: Stores for 10 to 15 years in an unopened sealed can (oxygen absorber included) under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). Once opened, freeze dried meat should be used within 1 month if refrigerated, 1 week if not.

To Re-hydrate: Add 3/8 cup of boiling water to ½ cup of Freeze Dried Beef Crumbles. Stir once, cover and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain off excess water and use the beef as you would use fresh ground beef. Once re-hydrate, the weight of 1 #10 can weighs about 4.4 lbs.

Uses: Freeze Dried Beef Crumbles can be used to make tacos, meat sauces, burritos, pastas and more.

Revised and revisited.....

If you use this product and the taste and smell is to strong your not using BOILING HOT water Crazy Boiling Hot Water (is there such a thing :). Experimenting with the can I have I found that if you boil a cup of water on a stove in a deep pot with the lid on make sure it is a roiling boil. When the water is boiling pour 1/2 cup of meat into the pot and then take it off the stove. You need a deep enough pot so that when you pour the meat in the foam will not go over the sides of the pot ( think of how a deep fryer acts ). I use a quart and a half pot for one 1/2 cup of meat and one cup of water this seems to be a good combination. IF the meat does not foam some when you pour it in the water was not hot enough. Let sit for about 6 minutes string only once after you pour the water in. Also if you are outside you may need to put your pot in a pot cozy or towel to keep it from getting cool to quickly. If the pot cools off it will not re-hydrate the meat properly. Drain and use as any ground meat in soups stews or sauces. Now my daughter says it tastes OK since she is our resident food critic I can now use it in my meal plans.

Disappointing

I have a can that I am not sure I can use. I think the flavor and smell is quite strong and I can't seem to make the flavor calm down with repeated rinses. I gave some to others and they don't like the strong flavor either. I was hoping it would be an easy way to have it on hand for camping and hiking but I'm sorry to say it is not usable. My wife said that maybe we got a bad run but the price is to high to justify trying another can.

Great Product a Real Time Saver

So far I've used this in spaghetti sloppy joes and tacos. I have absolutely no complaints. After rehydrating rather than drain I usually substitute the access water for the water called for in the various recipes. The small pieces of beef break-up very easily so I've found it works better to pour from the can rather than scoop. Also much of the beef appears to be nothing but powder. The powder rehydrates into small beef and is completely usable.

Freeze dried ground beef

This is very good. I've used it in soups and in chili and was very happy with it. It's convenient and tasted good.
