a little chewy

I love the taste of M.H. Beef Stew,i didnt think it would be so difficult to get the beef soft enough ,that it is comparable with bought beef you cook up at home.I even let the stew sit for 20 mins after boiling.maybe im doing something wrong? I went by the cans directions and let it sit for 12 mins and it was uneatable hard carrots and meat.When i let the stew sit for 20 mins the potatoes peas and carrots were fully cooked but the beef was on the chewy side maybe a full 1/2 hour will do it ??

Good meals

I was skeptical at first being a picky eater, but the taste is rather nice and the cost is very reasonable. I always add more potatoes and some fresh meat when I make it for the kids but even on its own, the stew is good and great for camping, or cold days.

Great over rice

I can feed a whole family with some rice and beef stew. I can add other dehydrated vegies to this when I rehydrate it. Love the flavor.

My husband and I were surprised at how yummy this is! It tastes just as good as many of the homemade stews I've eaten over the years. Of course, the beef bits are smaller than what you might have in homemade, but the flavor is very good. I would definitely recommend this one be in your pantry.

Great Stuff !

This item is great! It solves several issues. Stores a long time, it's a complete Hot meal reconstituting as it cooks. Works best if you can cook it and let it sit for longer than recommended time. (the beef takes a little longer to reconstitute.)

Fantastic for little ones

My 10 month old and I think this stuff is fantastic. We have reduced the amount of waste materials with traditional baby food (no more jars, foil, or plastic containers). The size and texture of the beef and vegetables are perfect for her. And the broth adds just the right balance of flavor for her palate. I strongly recommend this to all of my friends.

My wife and I were camping, and the temperature went way below what was predicted (9 degrees). At dinnertime, we fixed up a batch of stew and it turned our whole night around! It warmed us up, and was very delicious! I credit the meal with the night being much better than it would have been without it! I won't leave home without Mountain House in the Jeep!!!!

Good Stuff

I really enjoy this stuff. I ate it when I was really hungry and forgot to add my customary seasonings, the results have surprised me. Adding seasoning will probably make it better, but again as is...this is mmmm good.

Makes great leftovers

This stew makes great leftovers. It tastes homemade. We ladled this over egg noodles and feasted for days.
