Is actually really good! I have been eating it a lot lately since it was on sale at Walmart. Its great! It has the pop top opener, so no can opener needed, pour it into a larger coffee mug, heat for 1 and a half minutes and done! After its heated, i put a dollup of butter into it for the potatoes..anyone else?

I think it would be okay to have on hand in case of emergency but otherwise, I wouldn't eat it. I have eaten it, btw. To me, there's no substitute for the goodness of actual beef stew cooked on the stove top or slow cooker. Besides, canned food loses much of its nutritional value. I love beef stew on a cold winter day (or night!)

I haven't had it in years, if I want a stew, I make one. It is Ok for an item in an emergency kit.

Slightly OT - but interesting story, related to me by a retired ER nurse. She was talking with a homeless guy, who told her his method for getting people to donate money to him. He would buy a can of dog food and a can of Dinty Moore beef stew. He would dump out the contents of the dog food can, rinse it, and then put the Dinty Moore in the dog food can. We would then sit outside the grocery store, eating the "dog food".

WE ALWAYS have it on hand. I feel sorry for the snobs who can't enjoy it.

I wouldn't call myself a snob, I just like making my own stews. I like extra carrots, onions, & potatoes.

Please supply a citation for this assertion. This doesn't mean what some health food site says. It means an academic source.

I might do that later when I have time but the canning process destroys many of the nutrients. Frozen is usually best, fresh is second best unless it is freshly picked, and last is canned.

I had it as a kid and recall liking it. I tried it one time as an adult. Never again.
