Description

Because you can't bring mom on every backpacking trip.

There's nothing like a little comfort food after a long day of hiking. Mountain House's Freeze Dried Beef Stroganoff meal for two is just like mom used to make only it's lighter, tastier, and well, you have to make it on your own. It comes in a foil package that stands up on its own for easy eating and cooking.

One of my favorites

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really, i don't know why but this is my most bought dehydrated meal. Its good enough but its really not that great unless you have some hot sauce or a painful day. Best part is how rich and filling it is so i dont mind sharing as much as some of the others

good food on the go

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It would get five stars, but my only beef with Mountain House is that they over package their meals. They could trim the fat a bit and slim down the packaging so it takes less room in your pack.

I buy the two serving ones to save space in my pack. You can nosh, roll the top down relatively tightly, rubber band it closed and eat the rest later. Just dont use too much water, and youre good to go.

As to the taste, needs a bit of salt, but hey, its pretty good. Heck, probably better than what I could whip up at home. My stroganoff game isnt that strong. :)

Not bad, needs salt

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

I'm a bit of a neophyte to the freeze dried camping food game, but I love beef stroganoff. I gave it a shot on my last camping trip.

two tips: use a bit less water than the instructions indicate, and bring some salt and pepper. Otherwise I'm a fan!

Great Taste!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One of if not my favorite Mountain House meals. I like to use slightly less water with the meal so that its more of a pasta than a soup.

My favorite Mountain House entree

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my favorite mountain house entree hands down. Just took this down backpacking into Havasupai. Its very tasty and filling and everyone at camped loved it. I typically use 1.5 or 1.75 cups instead of 2 though as the recipe calls for.

My favorite from Mountain House

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The taste and texture of this meal is incredible! I've tried a handful of Mountain House's Dehydrated Meals, but this one was my all time favorite. The sauce is rich and creamy and the beef isn't super chewy. If you're already on this page looking at this GET IT!

You won't be disappointed.

One of the best!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I can easily say that when out backpacking I look forward to eating this meal! I have tried many of the Mtn. House products & for a filling / delicious meal this has to be the winner!

Surprisingly great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I left this dinner home on 4 trips dreading eating it. Turns out it is one of my favorites. Bring some de hydrated peas and carrots for a real good time!

Great Freeze Dried Meal

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

This has great flavor and was easy & quick to fix. The best tasting of the 3 meals we used on a weekend trip. My husband is a big eater - would be nice if there were a little more there; a bag each would be too much. But he wasn't hungry after it either. Very pleased.

One of their better meals

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a backcountry guide in Yosemite, and I do a lot of personal backpacking and climbing trips. Sadly, I eat a lot of these meals. I'm incredibly familiar with almost all of them.

Not unlike the stroganoff many of us ate as kids. Creamy, beefy. Good noodles. I don't eat much beef, so sometimes this one can sit in my stomach for a while. I'll stay away from this one if I'm not acclimatized and at altitude.

I usually plan my meals out for low mileage, easy days... and then long climbs. This is my meal of choice for a really long day when I'm getting to camp on fumes and I know I want a lot of food.

PS. Its a little complex and heavy for high altitude. Above 11,000 or 12,000 feet this meal can sit in your gut for a while.

Pretty Tasty

We were probably just really hungry after hauling our packs around all day, but this Stroganoff tasted amazing. Well amazing for freeze-dried food at least.

Yummy!

Yummy!

I bought a bag of this for a recent overnight camping trip so that we could have some quick and easy food. I have had the stroganoff many times before, it is my go to camping food. This time I added a little too much water so it ended up being really soupy but still tasted amazing. Add a little hot sauce on top after it has cooked and you have yourself a super tasty and filling dinner.

Mountain House Beef Stroganoff Rocks!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I agree with geraldcf011103127's 6/20/13 review, below... I pack MHBS on every trip. Backpacking partners have always agreed that this meal is a keeper, too. I like to pair with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Needs flavor

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Its aight, nothing special but better than most out there. Its pretty flavorless so bring salt or hot sauce or something. Cooks up nicely in the bag in about ten minutes. Wish the bag was burnable.

Awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The best Meal ever!! I get this every time I back-pack. It is filling and delicious.

Really good

Tastes almost like real thing and really easy to cook. You really can't beat the taste/convenience ratio with mountain house meals. Usually, when I come off the trail and set up camp I'm both tired and hungry and just want to relax. These are perfect because you can "cook" your dinner while setting up camp and by the time your finished setting up tent and sleeping bag, so is your dinner. The Beef Stroganoff is pretty good lots of vegetables which I like.

A meal fit for Beavis and Butthead..

A meal and a little entertainment in one.
The one liners were 'coming' fast and furious with this one.
It is pretty good and it seems to bring the little boy out in every man. Or at least the guys I hang around with.

Yum!

Tasted way better than I thought it would! Good stuff

This is my favorite Mountain House. It is a big, filling meal for one person after a draining day, or a 2-person meal for less calories on a camping trip or something. Great warm, comfortable meal on a cold fall night.
