I enjoyed it as a kid, I've not had it in a long time.

Me too !


About a year ago they had it on sale and I thought a taste from the past without
having to make enough for an army.


It was SO Greasy I ended up tossing it, don't remember it being that way
and it had a real salty taste.

I like it served over instant rice. I don't add any butter or salt to the rice when I make it, though, so it helps balance out the slight greasiness and saltiness of the Dinty Moore stew.

Of course, it's no substitute for the real thing, but I do like it.

My late DH used to like it. Not sure of the brand, but there was one "beef stew" that actually used hamburger instead of real meat chunks. Just checked, DM does the same thing. Meatball stew. Yum. Read the reviews on the Hormel web site.


I can't eat any of that processed stuff, WAY too salty.

We would then sit outside the grocery store, eating the "dog food".
That wouldn't work any more. The dog food costs more than the Dinty Moore.

I love beef stew on a cold winter day (or night!)
You're probably right about canned stew, since it would need a long time in a steam retort to kill the botulism spores. Other canned foods are not cooked to death. When I do jelly, I use gelatin instead of pectin, and don't even boil it, I just pasteurize the juice and give it a 15 minute water bath to seal the lid.

Ate that too much during a bad childhood, not good memories, so no thanks.

I like it once in a while but wouldn't recommend it for a steady diet.
