Looking for delicious meals but just don't have time to go bring out your chef's hat and create a fancy dinner? Not to worry! We've got 5 reasons why freeze-dried meat not only makes cooking easier, but adds a fresh take on your favorite meals.
1. Already Sliced, Diced, Chopped, and Ground
Whether it's chicken or beef, the messiest part of meal preparations is cutting up your juicy meat into usable portions. Not only that, it can also be super time consuming. Freeze-dried meat is pre-cut, so all you need to do is pop open a can, grab the amount you need, and heave a sigh of relief when you don't have to bring out the knives.
2. Tastes Like Chicken!
And beef. And pork. And...well, you get the picture. Freeze-dried meat tastes just like its store-bought counterpart, complete with their natural shape and texture. It's the real deal, and you can tell with every mouthwatering bite.
3. No Time? No Problem!
Freeze-dried meat offers quick and easy meal preparation. All you need to do is reconstitute the meat in water for a few short minutes, drain, and you can add it to salads, casseroles, tacos, quesadillas, and so much more! Since freeze-dried meat is pre-cooked, good, hearty meals no longer require a whole lot of time, and that can make a huge difference after a long day.
4. Quick Clean-up
Whenever you cook with raw chicken, you probably spend a lot of time using anti-bacterial sprays and cleaners to make sure any residue is gone. But when you use freeze-dried meat, the only thing you’ll have to clean up is the bowl you use to reconstitute the meat in and the pan you use to cook with.
5. Mundane to Marvelous
Tired of eating spaghetti over and over again? The fact is, eating the same meal repetitiously can really put a damper on dinner time. Toss some freeze-dried chicken in with your spaghetti and then smother it in Alfredo sauce for a delicious take on an old favorite. Or, add some extra beef to your chili or casseroles for an added boost of flavor and energy. By adding freeze-dried meat to your meals, not only will it add to the flavor, but you'll look like a seasoned professional!
These are just a few reasons why freeze-dried meat is great to use for cooking. But don’t just take our word for it. During our Annual Warehouse Sale Event (happening now!), grab yourself some delicious freeze-dried meat at huge discount and try it for yourself!
We strive to bring you emergency food that will stand the tests of time, in quality, taste, and health. So when we were looking for a company to partner with, these high standards played a key role in our selection of Mountain House as our freeze-dried food partner.
A Lasting Legacy
Mountain House has been creating delicious freeze-dried meals for nearly 50 years. This legacy of excellence began during the Vietnam War when the United States military requested better tasting, longer lasting, and lighter food than the K and C rations they were currently using. Mountain House (known as Oregon Freeze Dry at the time) was awarded the opportunity to be the military’s supplier, and has been ever since. For more details on how they came into being, check out their video below.
Creating freeze-dried food for almost half a century means Mountain House has been around long enough to actually test their 25-year-old food that has aged in real-time, as opposed to accelerated lab tests done by other companies. This makes their claim of their food having up to a 25 year shelf-life a proven fact. But what about food older than 25 years, you ask? According to Mountain House, it’s still good! The flavor might change a little bit, but it will still be safe to eat.
There’s more that goes with this proven shelf life, however. Mountain House has what they call a “Taste Guarantee,” meaning if your food doesn’t taste as good as it would have the day it was packed by 25 years, they will replace your food for you, no questions asked. That’s a confidence that can only come from decades of quality production.
3rd Party Testing
Mountain House doesn’t just believe you will love their food; they know you will. By taking advantage of third-party testers, Mountain House has evidence to back up their claims that people really do prefer their food over that of other brands. With our quest for the best in freeze-dried food, it’s little wonder we’re the largest suppliers of Mountain House around. We carry every Mountain House product they produce, and sell them at the lowest prices anywhere!

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Meats
Mountain House has a plethora of meal options from breakfast dishes, lunch and dinner entrees, and meats. From scrambled eggs and breakfast skillets for breakfast to chili mac and beef stew for lunch and dinner, your options for meals stay as fresh as the food itself. With cans of meat – such as chicken or beef – you can add extra bulk to your meals or use them in your own recipes.
These freeze-dried entrées are prepared by professional chefs and are then freeze-dried so when they are reconstituted they revert back to the ready-to-serve meal they started out as. Boring and tasteless camping and emergency food is a thing of the past. Mountain House gives you the power to eat what you want, wherever you are.
A meal just isn’t complete without a side and dessert. Sides help round out your meals with vegetables and fruit, and Mountain House’s delicious desserts really are the cherry on top. Choose from raspberry crumble or freeze-dried ice cream (just to name a few) to really turn your outdoor or emergency meals into something special.

Buckets and Kits
The Mountain House buckets and emergency meal kits are easy to carry and easy to store. Depending on the bucket, you get either 12 or 16 Mountain House food pouches. As for kits, you can combine various kits to create multiple combinations of meal options. For example, the 2-Day case of emergency food has different food options than the 5-Day Emergency Food Supply, and the 3-day is different from the 4-Day, as well as the others. So when it comes to having a variety of meals, mix it up with these Just-In-Case Emergency Food Supplies. Combine the 5-Day case with a 2-Day case for 7 days of Mountain House meals. Combine others for even more days’ worth of food! It’s up to you how you mix it up, but you can guarantee a varied supply of your favorite meals.
Each pouch has approximately 2.5 servings full of delicious Mountain House food. One of the perks of pouches is their small, personal-sized contents. If you’re out on a campout, you may not want to haul around a #10 can of your favorite entrée. Pouches allow you to pack your food in convenience. The pouches can also be used to reconstitute the contents without even having pour it into a separate container. This makes it so you don’t have to carry plates around, either. When it comes to quality and convenience, these Mountain House pouches definitely deliver.
After all is said and done, however, the most important thing about Mountain House meals is whether or not you like them. Of course, their track record in creating mouth-watering meals is above expectation, so we’re confident you’ll love them, too.

Let’s face it – you need to eat. It’s not only a necessity, but it’s something you actually enjoy doing! After all, what’s life without food? Sometimes, though, finding good food for an extended period of time can be difficult. Fortunately, Mountain House has developed a way to keep you fed in a simple, convenient manner that will blow your taste buds away. So without further ado…Mountain House Just-in-Case Emergency Food Supplies!
There are many kits to choose from, but the concept remains simple. Each kit comes with a certain number of Mountain House food pouches – enough for two or more days, depending on the kit chosen. That means if you only need four days’ worth of food, all you need to get is the 4-Day Emergency Food Supply. Simple enough, right?
But that’s just the beginning! By mixing and matching these kits, you’re able to get yourself even more days that what it says on the boxes. For example, if you need a week’s worth of food, your options include a 4-day and a 3-day, or a 5-day and a 2-day. Need food for two weeks? Why not get one of each!
The benefit in getting different kits to reach your meal count is that each kit contains different meals than the other kits. That means each 3-day kit has the same meals for that day count. Similarly, each 5-day kit contains the same meals for that kit. So, each meal you find in the 3-day kit won’t be in the 5-day kit, and vice versa. This is especially useful if you want more variety in your food storage.
Inside the kits are pouches of freeze-dried meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for however many days you choose. One of the perks of pouches is their small, personal-sized contents. If you’re out on a camp out, you may not want to haul around a #10 can of your favorite entrée. Pouches allow you to pack and prepare your food in convenience. By using the pouch, you can reconstitute the contents inside without even having to pour it into a separate container. This makes it so you don’t have to carry any plates or dishes around, either. Then when it’s ready to eat, the pouch is now your serving dish. Convenient indeed.
But what about taste? After all, that was one of the very first things mentioned above as something crucial in our meals. Not to worry! Mountain House has some of the best-tasting freeze-dried food around. They have professional chefs create their meals from scratch, so you know the food you’re getting is quality. Mountain House also offers a Taste Guarantee, in which if your pouches don’t taste like they did they day they were freeze-dried in 12 years, then they will send you a replacement straight up. That’s how confident they are. Third party tests have also declared Mountain House the best of its competitors in taste, appearance, and other categories.
If you’re looking for great tasting, convenient emergency or camping food, look no further than these Mountain House multi-day emergency food kits. Just grab a kit and you’re good to go for up to five days. Add more kits and you will have as much food as you need for as long as you need without having to figure out the math behind it all.
Being prepared with great food can make a huge difference in your camping and hiking trips, and especially during an emergency. Mountain House makes it easy for you to continue eating flavorful, home-style meals when traditional methods of cooking are no longer available.
