I like hamburger when I'm camping for pasta sauce, tacos, sloppy joes, etc

So I bought a can of Yoders hamburger.
(the life of a can of this stuff is 20 years by the way)
It is cooked in the can as raw hamburger and salt.

Here's my review:

Opened the can and the meat is bound together in the center with liquids and fat on the outside like a can of tuna. 20% shrinkage I would guess with the juices and fats on the outside.
The hamburger crumbles real easy and tastes ok except it is dry and salty. So I mixed some of the fat and juice back into it and sauted it with onions and it was very good.
I'll buy some more but for single can it was $6.75 plus shipping.
By the case of 12 cans it is $67 plus shipping

I will keep a few cans in my egg for sure.

If anyone wants to split a case let me know.


EDIT--------------
Wrong picutre and wrong prices. I bought a number of items.

Ron,
Where did you find it?
If this is the same product from Germany that I read reviews of last year on ExpeditionPortal.com, you are much kinder than they were.
With a long shelf life, I agree that having a couple of cans tucked away might be handy. I carry SPAM now. Lots of garlic, onion, and hot sauce will improve most anything. Of course, I have found some MREs that aren't bad.

UDA inspected. Canned in the USA from one of two makers.

I guess I was too kind because I was expecting something awful... so I graded to high because it wasn't awful.
True that! onions and garlic can make almost anything edible

You can cook all the hamburger you like and dry it. We've done it for years. It keeps a long time. I can't tell you how long exactly since we eat it regularly, but we've had some for over a year in the pantry and several years in the freezer.

We started with the Hungry Hiker's cookbook and have dried tons of meals and/or ingredients for meals from when we were tent camping.

We got a free Ronco dehydrator by sitting through a timeshare campground sales pith over twenty years ago. It's still going strong!

I think GFS, a restaurant supply store, sells the canned hamburger. I always buy their canned chicken because I don't eat much beef. They also have chunks of beef and I think Turkey.

you can put it in jars and then use a pressure cooker, I used to this on canoe trips only problem was the jars are fragile great for bush chili and hambuger helper.

Another option is browning and crumbling fresh ground beef, draining well, and packing in meal size portions in vacuum sealed bags to put in the freezer. We have a Food Saver vacuum sealer which works well to also keep cheese fresh.
