Recently found at local Wal-Mart a pre-cooked , vacumn packed hamburger product. Available in three types, lightly seasoned, Mexican and Italian. 13 oz. pack that equates to a precooked weight of 16 oz. I have used them in soups, omelates , burrittos etc. Around $2.49 a pack. Pre cooked and packaging caught my eye for boat use. Suggest you try it. I plan on including it in my provisioning for my short coastal trips.

We tried them several months ago and it was ok. The product is made in Brazil. I emailed them to
see what else they have and that''s all meat products they will carry and sell to wal mart.
We use them for quick meals and ease of storage. since they are flat you can stack a lot of pkgs in a small space.

What is the name of the product? Does it need refrigeration? What about shelf-life? I live in Thailand so don''t have access to a WalMart but do get back to the US occasionally.

Thanks,

SatNav

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Such is life. The product name is Jack Links and it comes in three flavors. Lightly seasoned, Italian and Mexican. The packs are 10.5 oz and equivalent to 1 lb. of pre cooked weight.Shelf life is 18 months and is printed on each packet.Packed flat and a real space saver.At the present they are exclusively sold at Wal-Mart stores but are going to the chain stores in the near future.
I have enjoyed using them. They are made in the USA and have a website at www.linksnacks.com , hope you enjoy them.
