Beef and Potato Hotpot.

Preparation: REMOVE THE OXYGEN ABSORBER* (Sachet) from inside the pouch. Slowly add up to 200ml hot water, stirring as you pour and then close the bag. Wait 5-8 minutes for the food to rehydrate.

Cold water will suffice, however the re-hydration time is much longer.

Testing Freeze Dried meals at Ultralight Outdoor Gear6.5MARK'S TASTE TEST - calorie count for Expedition Foods is around the 450mark, just below most others which are typically 550-600calories. If you don’t normally have a starter try a cup-a-soup with crackers to boost the meal. I added 260ml boiling water and resealed the bag – left it wrapped in a down jacket for the full time specified. First mouthful was a bit bland so added salt to taste. Much better. All had rehydrated, there was only slight meaty taste to it – veg was dominated by swede, would have preferred more onion – which you could add as a fresh ingredient, with that it might be a 7.5, but as it is I only give it 6.5/10.


7.5STAFF'S TASTE TEST - The beef and potato hotpot went down well with our staff, though some people felt it lacked a 'meaty' taste, but had a nice enough flavour to it. The potato's were quite sweet so a bit of seasoning wouldn't have gone a miss. But over all it had a good consistency and flavour. Would be nice at the end of a long walk.


Vegetables (30%) (Onions, Lentils, Swede, Carrots), Potatoes (32%), Minced Beef (9%), Rapeseed Oil, Chicken Stock, Tomato Puree, Cornflour, Sugar, Mixed Herbs (Parsley, Chives), Colour (Ammonia Caramel), White Pepper, Salt.

Lightweight, nurtitious and tastes ok.

If you think of a hot pot dish you've eaten and your mouth starts watering at the thought of a home-made or pub recipe with rich gravy and tender chunks of beef, you may be a little disappointed when you devour your first spoonful of this meal. However, this is a freeze dried meal, so you need to manage your expectations and consider the nutritional values packed into such a light pack then you'll forgive the absence of such luxury. The meaty taste was lacking a little and the meal did feel like it was missing something but a pinch of salt and pepper would add a greater depth of flavour and you could even add a few gravy granules to give it a richer taste. I struggled to finish the entire pack for dinner, and it kept me well fueled until the next morning, so consider the portion size to be more than adequate.
