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 one 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.

Its very good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A little hot sauce with this one and you will be a happy camper. Easy on the water though. Too much water and this meal can easily be a crummy soup.

2nd only to Chili Mac

Dang! This stuff is good. Nice and hearty. Great to refuel after a long day of adventuring.

One of the Best!

This is in my top 3 favorite MH meals, so good....

  • Gender: Male

I'm a big fan of mountain house meals. I've had a handful of them and this one is towards the top.

Strong off with stroganoff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One of the best dehydrated meal ever, the only rival is lasagne. One is usually enough to do ya right. I always save my strog for a celebratory meal after I crush a peak out.

Great freeze dried

One of the better mountain house meals for sure!

Beef Strog + pro pack = win

all the awesomeness of beef strog in a smaller pack. This is my go to MH for dinner.

Great!!

I saw a video and read many reviews of how you need to get the two serving entree instead of the one serving entree. Backcountry was out of the 2 serving entrees so I ordered a couple of the 1 serving entrees instead. Made the mistake of making both of them one night out on the trail and didn't eat the other one because the first serving was PLENTY. And I eat a lot, too. It's just so filling that 1 serving is plenty. Super delicious, too.

Great entree, use less water

After over-stocking my pack, I actually dined on this a few days after a two day packing trip. Tasty entree and the sauce didn't make a huge mess. One tip: use a bit less water than suggested (12 oz v. 14 oz); you'll wind up with less funky bear bait to pack out.

Mountain House Beef Stroganoff

This stuff is so yummy. Seriously, I would eat this at home as a regular meal. Whenever I backpack with this stuff, I actually look forward to dinner time.

Just like mama use to make.

OK not really, my mom wasn't that great of a cook. This stuff was better than her cooking.
Taste pretty much like a you basic "hamburger helper" style stroganoff. I really liked the taste if anything I might add a pinch of salt to it, but again I ate it as is and I liked it.
The day I ate it was not a particularly physical day, and the amount was just right. On a long day of hike I tend to eat quite a bit more and this wouldn't have been enough to satisfy my hunger. I think most hikers already have a pretty good idea of the amount they need per day, but I thought I'd point this out in case anyone was debating the amount.

Very Good

Was needing some energy on a cold day above the timberline and this really hit the spot. I literally licked the bag clean.

Yum!!!!!

Would definitely get this again! Very tasty and filling! Almost as good as homemade!

Watch out for the mushrooms

This meal tasted pretty good. I absolutely hate mushrooms so I had to pick those out. Guess I need to read the package next time.

Thanks for the tip about the mushrooms. I hate them too!

Great series, not so great taste

It's a very nice concept, with the vacuum packaging for very high elevations. However, it will only work at elevations over 16,000 ft, below that, the regular packaging works just as well, even from the sea level, and packs more stuff for the money.
As for the taste, it's ok when you just need to stuff yourself with some dehydrated junk food after a day of climbing, but the meat in it tastes like dog food. And looks like it too.

Recomend

My kids and I love this one. Filling and very tasty. Easy to prepare and folds down small to carry out.

Better Choices are Available

Easy preparation & clean-up. Pro-Pak size is nice when limited pack space is an issue. Portion size & taste is adequate when you're hungry. Three times more sodium then necessary. Like everything else, READ THE LABEL!

Really tasty pack food!

This is pretty good for a dehydrated food for backpacking. One of these serves two, and it is really filling. Cook then let sit for 9 minutes to set up and serve. Light weight and really packable.

Good option

This is a tasty meal either as a stand alone or suplement to a seperately prepared meat. Plenty of food for 2. It's a little bland so add some pepper and garlic for better flavor.
