    Astronaut Steaks

    This guy has a you tube channel where he trys all kinds of ways to cook meats.

    Apparently "Astronaut steaks" are freeze dried and sealed, which results in a shelf stable steak with a 25 year life span. No refrigeration needed and the end result has half of its weight removed.

    In the video he tries different preparation techniques and does a taste test as well.

    I don't know what a quality freeze drying machine costs, but one could buy fresh foods when on sale and freeze dried for long term storage.

    Yes they eat it.

    I agree it looks bad, apparently fatty cuts of meat don't do well when freeze dried.

    cut the fat out and eat the meat. no problem when you're hungry.
    Ride me back home to a much better place
    Blue skies and sunshine and plenty of space.
    Somewhere where they would just leave you alone
    Somewhere that you could call home.

    I would not easily trust myself with meat. But I do wish I had freeze dried my own fruits and veggies instead of buying what I have. Very long shelf life if you can vacuum seal it well.

    I wonder what a commercial grade freeze dryer goes for?

    I wouldn't skimp on the plastic wrap either.

    Exactly.

    I have in my MRE stash...as part of many meals...cheese and crackers. No, not Ritz crackers and not Velveeta cheese...and not the cheese sold out of rural cheese shops.

    The crackers are saltines and the cheese, if you want to call it that...looks like mustard, spreads like peanut butter, and has an odor vaguely like feces.

    When you're hungry, you eat it.
