A companion to the upcoming book of similar title, this blog gives recipes to make your own homemade and healthy Meals Ready to Eat. Whether you prepare these for survival in emergency situations or to provide healthy meals for work and camping/backpacking, or if you just need portion control for your diet, there are recipes here for nearly everyone! // ALL ingredients are dehydrated or freeze-dried, or shelf-stable, and all recipes are for one serving. // At least ONE new recipe will be added each week.

MRE RECIPE: Asian Beef with Broccoli

As you know, we love Asian food! This is a recipe that is a bit more complicated but it's worth it.  I use three separate bags for cooking this (you could use jars) so that the broccoli doesn't become mush and keeps its individual flavor. Same with the rice.  If you prefer, use white rice. And you could make your own beef broth/powdered bouillon instead of using a store-bought cube.

Remember, all of the recipes I am writing for my book are single serve, and use freeze-dried / dehydrated ingredients.

Bag/Jar 1:
1/2 cup precooked roast beef pieces
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 beef bouillon cube
1 tbsp brown sugar
(To reconstitute to thick, add 3/4 to 1 cup of boiling water, seal tightly, shake until well reconstituted, and set aside until ready to combine with the others.)

Bag/Jar 2:
1/2 cup broccoli
2 tbsp scallions
(To reconstitute, add 1/4 boiling water, seal tightly, and shake periodically.)

Bag/Jar 3:
1/2 cup instant brown rice
(Add 1/2 cup boiling water ... more or less to taste.)

Combine, or serve/eat separately. As always, salt and pepper to taste. Add liquid soy sauce if desired.

  • Gluten-Free: naturally, but check on your rice, bouillon, etc just to make sure.
  • Low-Carb: Eat this without the rice, and it'll be low-carb!
  • Low-Sugar: there really isn't a whole lot of brown sugar in this. If it's too much, feel free to take it out, or reduce.
  • Nightshade-free: naturally
