Freeze Dried Ground Beef!

Easy to Prepare, High in Protein and Tastes Good
The Honeyville Farms Ranchers Cut Freeze Dried Ground Beef is a good tasting product and represents a great value.  The ground beef in the Honeyville Farms Ground Beef primarily consists of larger crumbles of ground beef with some smaller powder as well.  The only ingredients in the product are ground beef and salt.  The ground beef is fully cooked with salt and then freeze dried.  This results in a high quality product.   What I really liked about the Honeyville ground beef is that to me it tasted like really low fat ground beef that I have eaten.  It is also really easy to re-hydrate.  It only took 5 minutes in boiling water to reconstitute fully.  Just soak and then drain off the excesses water.  The meat comes out nicely reconsistuted and tender.
We decided to make soft tacos with the freeze dried ground beef.  We also used the Honeyville Freeze Dried Cheddar Cheese as a topping for the soft tacos.  Food storage has come a long way!  Freeze Dried Meat and Cheese.........I never thought I would see the day.
We made homemade whole wheat tortillas from scratch and grew our own lettuce.  This helped us to feel we were making a meal centered in self sufficiency.
The soft tacos tasted great and primarily came from our food storage!
