Re: Meat & Potato Man

I am glad to see I'm not the only one canning. As a matter of fact I have been busy at it for the last week. One can stand only so much Spam and Dinty Moore beef stew. There is much info online about canning if you are timid to try it. As mentioned cooking for 15 minutes is essential.

There is much info online about canning. Mother Earth News and many universities have recipes and processing charts.

I wonder if at this point we're all responding to dead air. I hope the OPer came back to see the responses to her question.

Meat & Potato Man

Lol wow some very interesting replies to my post! However some very good ideas. I'm thinking I still want to try canning a bit, however I better try it soon so if I do poison us we will be close to a hospital lol.

And he is flexible on food, loves fish so no problem there. I just wanted ideas on other meats since I like to keep my man happy. Not one sided at all since he keeps me happy all the time!

Thanks again to everyone on ideas and references on books and online info for the canning part.

Re: Meat & Potato Man

Look at the dried Beef which Rei and some of the expedition outfitteres have. It is quite good when reconstituted and you have only eaten fish and ahem museli for a few days for a meat eater. Good to hear you are trying it.

I wasnt trying to scare you with the botulism thing, it is rare. just dont use any open swollen can if you do home canning.

Beef - Dried - How To Cooking Tips - RecipeTips.com

Dried Beef (1 lb) < Dried Beef < Deli & Other Items | Buy Steaks Online

I know most of these arent steaks...but they can used in stir frys, mexican food, soups and stews, and other cooking applications and recipes. Just rememeber they are salty by th nature of the drying process so there is no need to add any more.

DR, I think this says the ideas and information are still important. Many people have the same question. (This is my reasoning for responding to vintage posts, so I won't look like a complete idiot.)

Re: Meat & Potato Man

Beanie weenies are delicious. Do not underestimate the beanie weenies. Or Chef Boyardee. No, it's not the best and not really cooking...and maybe not really food. But it's an easy meal after a long day.

Re: Meat & Potato Man

Chef Boyardee Ravioli can be a great base for a meal. Amp it up with some herbs and spices, maybe cut in some sausage and peppers and onions...
