If you follow the directions exactly - 2 cups of boiling water in the pouch and sit for 5 min- it's edible, but soupy & meat was a not fully re-hydrated. Was kinda bland tasting.
Keep salt an pepper in your survival kit. I also like garlic & onion powders. I made a second pouch in a pot - boiled 1.75 cups water, added mix and some of those seasonings simmered for about 5 min covered and a few more min uncovered and it was pretty darn good.
The 1 cup serving size is small. If you are just surviving I am sure it will keep you alive, but for adventure activities (hiking, Biking, etc...), you need more than minimum calories, consider 2 servings per person per meal.
Pay close attention to the calories supplied - long distance backpacking can burn 5k calories per day, which can mean you will struggle to get enough calories.
This is 2.5 servings. Some are 2 servings (ProPacks), some are just 1,etc, so you have to pay attention to what you are buying.
To make the Beef Stroganoff; We boil the water and add it to a bowl with whatever amount of the dried food that we want. We then cover the bowl with plastic wrap, wrap it in a towel to help keep it hot, and then let it set a good 15 to 20 minutes to be sure all the beef pieces have reconstituted. Then we ad a tad more boiling hot water to bring it back up to temperature. Or, we warm it up more on our wood burning stove. We like it served over a bowl of steaming fresh cooked, brown rice, just so the meal goes further and is healthier. It is also very good over cooked egg noodles or other pasta too. To make it special, if we have it, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of dill weed makes it awesome!
My family and I did side by side comparisons of Mountain House vs. Wise Company products and M.H. won every test. There are products that only Wise sells that M.H. doesn't offer but when it comes to their food products, Wise doesn't match. They ( Wise Co. ) use soy products and flavorings. Mountain House does not. We tested a box of 5 day rations that we had kept in storage for 5 years because the box got wet when our basement flooded. The M.H. products are in waterproof, recloseable bags that are great for camping. Wise products we purchased did not, but they are air and water tight also. We had to use a metal clip to close the bag to allow the hot water to steep.
Mountain House has such a much bigger variety of food products to pick from as well. Wise has a limited line of food products in comparison. Wise offers freeze dried fruits & vegetables that I haven't found with M.H., but the amount of product versus the cost just isn't worth it. And their are plenty of YouTube videos that compare these products as well. It comes down to taste and for us at least, we prefer Mountain House. But we would give Wise a 3.5 star rating for it's foods.
Remember to use boiling water to rehydrate this product and wait at least 10 minutes before you eat it, too soon and you will have partially hydrated product and it worse than eating overly al dente pasta. Keep it covered to get the moisture in. If you put too much boiling water it will look like soup, too little and it will be like paste. The directions are good but sometimes variables in the climate you are in can cause this not to come out correct so use your judgement. After about 5 minutes, you should be able to see if you need more hot water.
I hope this helps.
