Here is Dehydrated Hamburger Stew Mason Jar Meal Recipe that is frugal to make, tastes delicious once cooked and will last for years on your food pantry shelf in an airtight manner.
Remember Hamburger Helper?
Do you have a bunch of clean mason jars that are just waiting to be filled ? Would you like to be able to grab a jar from the shelf to make a quick meal ? This is your plan ahead answer.
Well, here is a homemade meal called Hamburger Stew – a stew that tastes like a hamburger flavored with herbs and spices. It is actually quite delicious, easy to make and can be the base of a super filling meal for the whole family.
Freeze-dried ingredients if possible but if not you can use your own dehyrator to remove moisture.
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon of thyme
1 cup quick cook red beans
1/4 cup of dried onions
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of beef bouillon
1 cup dehydrated mixed vegetables
1 cup dehydrated ground beef (https://thehomesteadsurvival.com/hamburger-rocks/)
1 cup dehydrated diced potatoes
1/4 cup each of tomato powder
Next, comes the prepping and cooking. First, get a clean Mason jar and pour in everything: beans, veggies, meat, flour – all of it inside. Shake it up for a few seconds, so they can blend in very well and suck up all open space. BTW, this meal has a serving size of six; so, if you don’t want the extra food, just reduce each quantity of each ingredient a bit. Then, place the lid on tightly, preferably with a vacuum seal to solidify the air tightness of the can. Stick the jar ring on and stick in a dry place that is fairly cool.
When ready to use, do the following to cook. Carefully, take off the jar lid and pour the mix into a large pot. Then, pour in 6 cups of water and boil it with a medium-to-high heat. When it boils, lower the heat to let it seethe for 30 minutes. Simply, serve in a bowl and enjoy. Bon appetite!
