My favorite food to take camping is the famous mountain house beef stroganoff with noodles. It is one of the best backpacking meals around and it seems like everyone that tries it likes it.
It has been around for a long long time and is a staple as a hiking food or just a good food to take camping. if your looking for an easy camping food idea, this is it along with many other freeze dried mountain house pouch meals.
They’re simple and quick to fix and taste really good especially when your in the mountains camping.
One of the better backpacking meals, it seems to fill you up. It has wonderful texture, creamy sauce, mushrooms, beef chunks and ribbon noodles, thick, good and will give you plenty of energy to continue on down the trail.
As I mentioned a bit ago, it is simple to fix, boil a little water, add to pouch, seal it back up, let it sit for 10 minutes and waa laa, you have a nice meal and a simple camping foods dinner.
They come in a 2.5 serving foil resealable pouch and with a serving size of 1 cup it is plenty good and filling.
You also have the option of getting the #10 can in the same meal which comes with a nice 10 servings per can and is also re-sealable with a plastic lid.
Quick freeze dried meal tip:
As I mention in other reviews I am not a salt person so meals that taste to salty to me are just not for me but I have found an easy fix for that.
Before you prepare your meal with the boiling water, get a cup of water and pour into the pouch, close and quickly slosh around a bit, then pour that juice off into a container for later.
Then add your boiling water with about a 1/4 cup less than what it calls for. Let your meal cook, open and taste, if it isn’t salty enough then just add some of the broth you poured off and mix it in well to buff up the taste.
Whatever the case, the mountian house beef stroganoff with noodles is one of the best backpacking meals, camping foods you will ever add to your camping food list.
