Description Extended Information
Freeze Dried Uncooked Denver Steaks
These Freeze Dried Denver Steaks are about 1/2 inch thick, 5 inch long, and 2-1/2 inches across. The meat comes from the beef chuck primal cut. Denver steaks are relatively tender, with nice beefy flavor, and they usually feature a good amount of marbling. These steaks are great for cooking on a grill! Denver steak is very high in protein, with 22 grams in a 3-ounce serving. It also contains 60 percent of the daily requirement of zinc, which helps with our immune systems, as well as a decent amount of iron.

These Freeze Dried Denver Steaks will be manufactured by a large military defense contractor. We just purchased a large lot of these steaks directly from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source. Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for the Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field. That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even White House staff or leadership. As always, we opened several cans to try these out before we offer them to you, and these steaks are amazing: tender, boneless, gourmet trimmed, very tasty, and as fresh as the day they were flash frozen and dehydrated!

Preparation: To prepare the steak, just soak it in cold or warm tap water for 4 hours and cook. These steaks are excellent for grilling. However, they also can be cooked in a sauté pan and finished in the oven, or even broiled. We found that it is best to tenderize the steak by marinating it before cooking, which should work out perfectly because you have to re-hydrate the steak anyways, so you can re-hydrate it in the marinade. You can marinade steaks with fresh garlic, sherry vinegar, mustard, light soy sauce, a little oil and seasoning. Or you could marinade them in BBQ or Steak Sauce. Denver Steaks are best prepared using high-heat to sear the outside and to leave the inside moist and tender. Once we re-hydrated the steak, we seared it hot, and finished slow, then we allowed some time resting before eating it. However, it is completely up to you how you want to prepare them. We've found that although great with only a 4-hour soak in warm tap water, if you let them sit longer they get even more tender. You can expect 25+ years shelf life as long as the steaks are sealed in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil them!!!

Once opened they will last:
  • up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated
  • up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated
  • up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated.

These are perfect for storing and using for many years! You can have great tasting food in hours with no mess and no waste - and it doesn't matter if the power goes out!! You can open just one can at a time and in just 4 hours cook one or as many of these as you want however you would cook any other fresh Denver steaks!!! Perfect for camping, boating, traveling, or at the cabin.
