Not sure if this is the right forum to post this. But, food is gear right? If I'm mistaken, someone please correct me.

I saw this at Menards of all places, but after checking this out online I see you can get it at Walmart.


I was a little afraid of the usual long list of ingredients found in many products of this type but the package listed ingredients are: Beef, Water, Contains 2% or less of: Salt, Beef Extract, Caramel Color.

Just curious if anybody has tried it. It might be a good addition for tripping.

Think you'll find a thread in cooking thread with lots of posts.

I've seen it at Menards. I've been tempted to try it. It would be great for tacos.

Tried the corned beef version and even my dog wouldn't eat it.

No, you go first and I'll watch what happens.

I see it's from Brazil so that should rule out kangroo! Personally I get my beef from my freezer, cook it, and dehydrate it myself, but then again what's the worst that can happen? You might want to start wearing speedos? FRED

Our group just tried this in September. We had foil packed chicken too. We made soft tacos with either meat and shredded cheese. A little taco seasoning in each meat and some sauce to top off the tacos and they were great. The beef crumbles do resemble dog food, until you heat and add taco seasoning. If you can get past that, your in for a quick hot meal.

Very easy to make your own with the same burger or venison you eat at home.

I tried it eight days ago and had no side affects.

Thanks for the info everyone!

Yes, I do realize that it's going to come out of the package looking, and likely smelling, like Alpo.

I do brown my own burger and dehydrate it at home, but I was simply curious about this product and wondered if anybody had tried it.

I read a couple of online reviews and it seems that surely the way to eat this stuff is mixed in with other ingredients.

According to the review, and Tomster above, the corned beef version is by far the worst of the three with the reviewer strongly advising to stay clear of that one.

When I got home I tried the Corned Beef (I already had Spam singles for the trip) and yes the Crumbles is far better in texture and taste. A lot less greasy too.

Menards of all places had it. $1.60 a package. We tried it on soft tacos in Missouri. Wouldn't hesitate to try it again.
Jack Links (the folk that make the various jerkies) had 3 kinds of cooked hamburger that was shelf stable a number of years ago. Some moron posted pictures of the product comparing it to dog food etc. Wasn't around on the market very long after that. It was a decent product as well ...

Tried this. It was edible as egg scramble and the spicy type is good on burritos. Easy to use.

Was at the Green Bay Menards today....they had this on the sale section for $1.50 a bag - 11%....so I bought a bunch and put it in freezer even though it is shelf stable. For next summer canoe camping... Can't go wrong for that. Probably means that they don't move enough of it to take the space and it will disappear.

Was just in Menards, and saw that they end-capped it behind the food for $1/bag. I should've bought them out now...
