Hello, my friend and welcome back! My friends over at Valley Food Storage sent me a sample of some of their freeze-dried meats to try out. I must admit I was more than a little skeptical, about freeze-dried MEAT. Today I’m going to share with you what I learned in the process. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
Seller & Price: valleyfoodstorage.com – $19.95 for a bag containing 3.5 cups of Diced Freeze Dried Beef.
Product Description: Each Bag contains TEN servings of 100% Freeze-dried diced beef pieces. Simply mix 1/2 cup of Beef Dices to 1 cup of boiling water. Let sit for 5 minutes and drain off excess water.
First impressions: Freeze-dried vegetables are one thing, but meat? I have my doubts.
Type of testing done: My wife used the Beef Dices to make some of her Homemade Chili, but made it SHTF style only staples no fancy diced tomatoes, smoked chipotle, etc. She used canned red beans, tomato sauce and chili powder, seasonings. Like me, she was pretty skeptical as well. We had the dinner just the other night and I have to tell you that we were both amazed at how well the meat tasted and how moist and tender it was. She even nibbled on a few dry pieces and said it was actually awesome. I would not have believed it if I hadn’t seen it myself.

Conclusion: There is finally a viable alternative to adding meat to your preps. I mean canned meat is fine, but admit it; it’s kind of hard to carry in a bug out bag. This meat comes in a Mylar zip closure bag with rehydrating instructions, which will fit neatly in your bug out bag. Taste great and is a great value as well. All in all, I give it five out of five stars!
If you’re looking to add meat to your preps that taste good and won’t break the bank, this is it! Order a bag and try it and you will see for yourself. This is good stuff and I am definitely going to be adding as much as I can to my preps. With a 25 year shelf life, you can’t go wrong. Well, that is it for today’s review and I hope you have found it as informative as I have. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
