Best Canned Meat For Your Deep Pantry Food Storage

Best Canned Meat

The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowances) for daily intake of protein is 56 grams for men and 46 grams for women. In other words that’s approximately several ounces per person per day. Note that these min. requirements do not factor laborious working conditions. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recommends that 10–35% of your daily calories come from protein.

The foods that contain the most protein are meats. And if you’re putting together a deep pantry for long term food storage, it may be a bit of a challenge to store meats – because most of us purchase meats fresh at the grocery store.

Here’s what you can do:

   

 
You can either pressure-can some of your own meat or you can simply buy some canned meat. I suppose that you could also raise your own livestock, but that’s not the aim of this article 😉

Okay lets say that you’re not ‘all in’ with your home canning yet. So what are your options to get some meat on the shelves?

I would recommend that you diversify while acquiring a variety of canned meats.

Note: During a grid-down situation more than 24-48 hours, whatever meat that you have in your freezer will thaw. Then what? (Canned meat won’t spoil when the power goes out.)

 
Is there a “best canned meat?” Well there are a number of popular companies who offer canned meat, beef, pork, chicken…

 
Here’s one… They raise home grown Angus Beef in Ohio.
No hormones. No antibiotics.

Their canned meat contains every high quality cut that comes from young steers (filet, new york strip and ribeye cuts).

Why do they claim to be the best? One significant reason is that many others use old cows that are 10 years old or older. Instead, they use high quality Angus beef around 3 years of age.

The meat is fully cooked and ready to serve. Shelf life 15+ years in a good storage environment.

 
Good beef isn’t cheap. That said, you get what you pay for.

The least expensive way to buy it is in quantity. For example, five 28 oz cans of Wertz’s beef (1.75 lbs each),

Or you might consider this popular ground beef from Keystone,

Keystone Meats All Natural Ground Beef

Or this from Kirkland, Roast Beef,

Kirkland Signature Roast Beef

 
Diversify your canned meat storage. You might add some canned chicken. Here’s some of what I have on the shelves (along with my own home-canned chicken 😉 ),

In the meat department of our deep pantry, we diversify (a key to so many things). We keep meats in our chest freezers. We have home-canned chicken on the shelves. We have canned beef on the shelves (e.g. Wertz’s). We even have a variety of SPAM, DAK hams, and a few other such canned meats. If the SHTF, I’m not just eating rice-and-beans 😉
