This may belong in the survival forum, but I figure I will try it here.

Several months ago when I decided it was time to get ready for the big one I began stocking up on canned goods etc. I asked my wife to pick up some canned beef etc each time she goes to the supermarket or dollar store. She took that as stock up on "potted meat".

This stuff is awful. I like to eat deviled ham, but "potted meat" is the worst.

Now that I have cans of potted meat to eat, I need some advice on how to make it palatable. I did find a gravy recipe, but would really like to know if anybody has tried it in chili or tacos or anything.

www.ehow.com...

Anybody have any good recipes they wish to share with me ?


Thanks in advance.

EssenceOfSilence I never before heard of potted meat so I used google. It looks like others have trekked the road you are on, and you might like what you find there.

deviled ham really is a nice treat from time to time. toss in some spices, pickle relish, not a bad sandwich. but the potted meat, OMG. scary looking product. if you can't handle it don't toss it, soup kitchens and no-kill animal shelters always need donations.

I do a far share of cooking, and I don't think I've heard of potted meat. Is this something sold in the U.S.?

Try adding something with a strong flavor like garlic, worcestershire sauce or nutmeg.

Yes. Here is a link to what my wife bought www.armour-star.com...

My father used to eat it when I was a kid and I remember I could not stand the smell. Now that I am old like he was I thought I could handle it. NOT.

Thanks for the replies.

My mum’s potted meat recipe.

1kg of gravy beef
1 shin bone cut length ways and then cut in half. So you have 4 pieces
Add salt and pepper
Cover with water and boil for 2 hours.

Scrape bones and cut up meat .
Discard bones.
Boil again for 15 min.

Thanks - Onions and garlic make everything better.

I may try and make some chili with beans and see how that goes.

Is this a recipe for canning meat? If so how long does it usually keep?

Thanks

Spam is like eating a Ribeye steak compared to potted meat. I love a spam sandwich or with crackers when I am out fishing, etc.

Slice jalapeno peppers in two, lengthwise. Either remove the seeds or not. That's a personal "heat" threshold level decision. Spread potted meat into the pepper halves. Enjoy! I guess...........

This sounds pretty good. I could combine it with the garlic and onions mentioned above and maybe some cheese whiz.

If that doesn't make it good, nothing will! I love all those things, especially jalepenos....

I can my own.
Pack any size jar full minus 1 inch headspace and pressure cook for 90 minutes at 12Lbs for my altitude.
Add a dash of salt to the Meat just about any meat.
This keeps for 1 year according to the bluebook of canning, but i have had almost 2 year old meat.
This stuff rocks if you heat it up with your favorite bbq sauce for 10 mins and slap on a bun.
Potted or canned meat is never as good as fresh however, cept when it comes to spam.
Spam is what charlie refers to when he speaks of tigers blood.

Winning.
