A real meal wherever you wander.

Hauling a tin can into the backcountry isn't practical, but the two-and-a-half one-cup servings inside the Mountain House Beef Stew supplies you with the same savory taste at a fraction of the weight. After a long hike in or a dozen trad pitches, the beef, potatoes, vegetables, and rich sauce starts calling your name from its 4.3-ounce package stuffed neatly into your pack.

  • Add boiling water directly into this bag, reseal it, and wait for your meal to cook to perfection
  • Compact vacuum pack won't take up much room in your pack or expand at high elevations
  • Contains protein and carbohydrates to keep you going in the backcountry

I will scarf it again.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

In the back country, I play by my own rules. That's right, I wear socks with my sandals and when it comes to breakfast, I don't let labels constrain me - I have Beef Stew for breakfast!

I thought Mountain House Beef Stew was pretty darned tasty. The beef reminded me strongly of Dinty Moore. The potatoes were delicious, so much so that I would buy a #10 can of them!

I'm ashamed to admit it but I actually would have enjoyed fewer vegetables. Not to say the veggies were bad (they were delicious), just that I was enjoying the meat and potatoes a lot more.

This is definitely a hearty MH meal, they don't skimp on the beef or the taters. I actually ended up throwing some out because it was so filling.

I had a traditional MH pouch of beef stew but next time I would opt for a Pro-Pak considering the space savings.

Another Great Choice

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried most of the Mountain House meals and this one is in my top three (along w/ Chicken ala King and Beef Stroganoff). Nothing tastes better than a tasty, filling meal after hiking for hours on end. These are super easy to cook and to dispose of. I end packing all the empties inside of each other to save space. Buy this, you'll love it!

Good Meal

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a really good meal. Sometimes when I haven't been backpacking in awhile, I will pull one of these meals out and eat it for lunch just to bring back the memories. Did I mention it tastes great?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

By far the best hiking meal I have had, so delicious. I know this sounds like an over zealous comment, but I was so amazed. Have a few on order to just keep in the ol backing packing gear trunk.

Decent for cold weather

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Some freeze dried meals are great even in summer. For me, this is a winter only with extra water. Taste is good, and plenty of veggies.

Not too shabby

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

A great way to end the day of hiking, the beef stew is sure to please. Warm and hardy and fills you right up! I only recommend adding some salt and pepper.

Very filling

This is a great meal for colder nights. It is hearty and very filling. Will keep you warmer at night with a big full belly of stew!

My wife and I have tried many of the Mountain House food products and this is our favorite, so far. The reason this is our favorite is two fold. First and most importantly, I want something that is light and filling. In my opinion, this is one of the more filling Mountain House meals. Most meals I eat from Mountain House leave me wanting after a 15 mile hike, but this meal fills me right up. Second, taste. This meal has a lot of flavor. Add a little salt and pepper and you are set.

Just like out of the can

The beef stew tastes like Denny Moore out of the can. Rich in flavor and very filling. Again let sit a little longer than package says.

This stuff is great for a lunchtime meal. Fed me and my girlfriend, only thing I would recommend would be to add a little salt and pepper for a little more flavor.
