Beef Stew - Meal in a Jar

Add each ingredient (in order), shake the ingredients gently down into  the jar to make everything fit.

1 cup THRIVE Instant Red Beans
1/2 cup THRIVE Tomato Powder
1/3 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Corn
1/3 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Diced Carrots
1/3 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Peas
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Diced Beef
1 T beef bullion
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Diced Potatoes
1 T beef bullion
1/4 cup flour
¼ cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Onion (or as much as you can get in the jar.

Add oxygen absorber and seal jar.

To prepare Beef Stew:
Remover oxygen absorber.
Combine stew mix and 6 cups water in a dutch oven or large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20-25 minutes.

You can also store these in Mylar bags.  In a jar on your pantry shelf these meals can last 5-7 years.  In a Mylar bag on your pantry shelf they can last 3-5 years.  The advantage of using a Mylar bag is that you can make the meal as large or as small as you want.  This bag pictured on the right has extra potato dices and 1/4 cup of Thrive Freeze Dried Green Beans. 

The jar recipe makes 10-12 1 cup servings.  Serve with biscuits and you have one of my families favorite meals!
