Shelf Reliance Mom: Thoughts on Freeze Dried Meat

Thoughts on Freeze Dried Meat

We all have opinions on whether or not meat should be included in food storage.  For some people its, not even a question, it's a no brainer.  Others point out the idea that if you are building a home store in case of an emergency, you are probably going to be trying to live on the basics so that you can buy more bulk and you'll be happy to just have food.

Then the carnivores say, "But experts say that if you don't have what you are used to, many times people starve rather than choosing to eat because they would rather have their comfort food."

So then herbivores say, "Then eat your food storage now and get comfortable!"

Ok... so basically its like fighting a losing battle.  I understand you've got to choose a plan that works for you.  Because there are so many people who ask about meat, I am posting my thoughts on the fantastic meat that we offer as well as what some of the best deals currently are.  I don't typically eat a lot of meat, but when I do, I do not like fatty stuff... It makes me gag.  Yes I know some people say grease is what gives it flavor...blah, blah, blah... but I DO NOT LIKE GREASE.

I think that Shelf Reliance has done a wonderful job of finding meat that is lean to please the people who like healthier food like me, but packed full of flavor for people like my husband.  I'm not a huge "chunk of meat" person, but the Beef Chunks totally changed my mind on that.  I have to say they are pretty great.  REALLY GREAT.

Enough already, show me the meat:
Chopped Chicken
To learn more about any of these individual cans of meat, you can click on the picture to be directed to the site.  I am also posting what mine and my customers thoughts are on the different types of meat so you will know what you are getting into :) Awesomeness, just so you know!

Beef Dices
Chopped Chicken: One of the most popular things sold.  LOVE it and sample it at every food demo.

Beef Dices: Newer to the line and a quickly growing favorite. LOVE IT! I know I already told you :)

Ham: Great but there is a down side.  With most meats they have a 1-2 year shelf life when opened but Ham has only a 2 week shelf life.  If you are buying strictly for food storage this probably wouldn't be a big deal since you would just plan for ham focused meals for a brief time, but if hoping to learn how to use it a little at a time in your home store, it would have to be kept in the fridge or freezer to extend life.

Seasoned Chicken Slices

Seasoned Chicken slices: Great larger pieces of chicken but not very flavorful so you still need to add seasoning.

Sausage Crumbles
Sausage Crumbles: Probably 3rd most popular meat I sell.  Great stuff. A little goes a long way because it is flavorful.  We like to use it on tortilla pizzas, or to make sausage, biscuits and gravy.

Ground Beef

Ground Beef: Probably 2nd most popular.  Our meat is known for being high quality and low fat so you can use less meat than the recipe calls for because there is not a lot of volume wasted on fat that must be cooked out.

Roast Beef
Roast Beef: Least favorite.  Half of my customers love it, half of them are not fans so I would stick with Beef Dices for red meat.

Turkey Dices
Diced Turkey: I hate to admit this but I haven't tried them.  I know, I'm terrible.  I am not a fan of turkey.  My sister-in-law and her sisters love them and I believe they are big part of the reason she joined the company.  Many people were devastated when they were off the market for awhile.  As for me, I'm a nut, I like chicken, however Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday.  Oh well.  Sorry.
