These Freeze Dried Flank Steaks were manufactured by a large military defense contractor. Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of products, 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 flank steaks are amazing: tender, boneless, gourmet trimmed, full of flavor, very tasty, and as fresh as the day they were flash frozen and dehydrated! They are 1/2 to 1 inch thick and 3 to 8 inches long.
Preparation: To prepare the steak, just soak it in warm water for about 40 minutes (or more if needed) and cook. These steaks are perfect for grilling. However, they also can be cooked in a sautÃ© pan and finished in the oven, or even broiled. They are best prepared using high-heat to sear the outside and to leave the inside moist and tender. 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. Once we re-hydrated the steak in the marinade, we seared it hot, and finished slow, then we allowed some time resting before eating it. If you are baking them in the oven, use very low heat for a long time. However, it is completely up to you how you want to prepare them. There was no shrinkage when we cooked them.
We've found that although great with only a 40 minutes soak in warm tap water or marinade, 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 seconds 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 40 minutes cook one or as many of these as you want however you would cook any other fresh flank steaks!!! Perfect for camping, boating, traveling, or at the cabin.
