MRE RECIPE: Asian Beef with Snow Peas

I couldn't find any dehydrated or freeze-dried snow peas so I bought some and dehydrated them myself. They reconstitute quiet well in boiling water. Note: this can also be made with chicken or turkey.

1/4 cup instant white or brown rice
1/2 cup beef chunks or rocks/crumbles
1/4 cup snow peas
1 beef bouillon cube
1/2 tsp brown sugar

Combine and seal. To eat, rehydrate with 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Stir and cover. Great to cook in a saucepan over a fire (or stove burner!) until reconstituted.

  • Gluten-free: If you have any doubts about instant rice, make your own! Cook your favorite rice until done, then spread on a thin layer on your dehydrator's fruit roll-up sheet, then dehydrate until all moisture is gone.  Same with bouillon: if you have any doubts about it, make your own by simmering homemade broth until quite thick, spread on the roll-up sheet and dehydrate until crispy enough to powder.
  • Dairy-free: no dairy in here!
  • Low-sugar: 1/2 tsp of sugar isn't too bad, and it adds to the taste.
