Wise Strogonoff



My neighbor at the campground said he's been eating vegetarian a lot more. None of the meals in the package I got from Wise have real meat in them. I asked him if he wouldn't mind trying a package of Wise brand strogonoff and telling me what he thought.

He said he followed the directions exactly. He found the meal was a little too soupy. After an additional five minutes on the stove, it was perfect. According to his tastes, the meal needed a little extra salt. That's better than having too much salt, as you can always add salt to taste.

What was his verdict? Overall, he thought it was pretty good. As a former military man, he claimed to like it much better than an MRE. So there you have it, one more opinion on dehydrated foods.

Speaking about dehydrated foods, I've been pretty happy with Harmony House Soup Mix, Dried Vegetable. I got the 12 ounce quart sized jar through Amazon. Sure, it works good in soups, but sometimes I rehydrate it and use it as a vegetable side dish. My lovely wife and I had those veggies, rice and some cheese as a light lunch.

Ease of preparation, food quality, no need for refrigeration and compact storage makes dehydrated foods a winner. I definitely will buy more of them in the future.

  1. Good to have some of that on hand for emergencies. Every now and then, eat what you have and replace it with fresh. Yeh, I know, it is supposed to last for ever. . .

    1. Eat it once in a while so it's not a surprise to the system.

  3. We've got several Mountain House pouches, purchased 10 years ago. Haven't ever tried one, but should do so. Thanks for the product reviews.

    1. Give one a try. They should be fine. You are welcome for the reviews. Glad people seem to like them.

  4. I ha found that those dehydrated meals are OK if you are on foot where weight and logistics are an issue. Otherwise they are rather anticlimactic. When car camping the weight of a couple extra accoutrements should not be a consideration and it is actually worth making the meal the highlight of the day.

    1. Some of the better ones have enough spice to give them some zip. That helps a lot.

  5. How has the constipation factor been with them ? Or have you eaten other stuff to keep you regular.

    1. No problems. In fact, my digestive health has been surprisingly good. We must be eating enough normal food to keep things regular -apples, oranges, nuts, oatmeal and whole wheat bread products.
