Aldi Brookdale Beef Stew 5 Year Review

I have been going over my preps lately and decided to try some of my "short-term" :D: canned food. I grabbed a can of Brookdale beef stew I bought from aldis over 5 years ago to have for dinner the other night. I took some pics along the way thinking it would make a good review for the boards.

I bought it in July of 2011. The best by date is May of 2014. I dont remember what it cost. I can tell you they are $1.50 currently.

Here is what it looked like. It slopped out of the can as expected but looked much better once warmed and stirred up of course.

Here are the nutrition labels. Despite the sodium this is relatively healthy with about 600 calories and 27 grams of protein per can. Can contains 3 servings. It is a great source of protein and definitely filling. I tried to finish the can and couldn't. And I am a big guy. It tasted a little on the salty side as expected but definitely tolerable. You can always rinse the meat and potatoes off. I had no ill effects that night or the following days.

This gets a 9/10 from me. I don't keep a whole lot of this on hand but will continue to do so. :thumb:

Next up: Brookdale Chicken and dumplings. :D:

I absolutely love Aldi and am glad to see this. We buy a lot of their canned goods, including the canned salmon and I'm glad to see it's held up! I also follow their sales religiously and preserve what I can. They had potatoes last week for $1.39 (ish) for a 10 lb bag and I plan to dehydrate most of them. I also purchased regular button mushrooms on sale for $.69 for 8 oz and dehydrated 2 flats- I think 24 containers. It was awesome!
