Warms your tummy.
I have bought several of the flavors and have just tried the beef stroganoff. I don’t eat much at a time so I broke it into 1/2 servings so I don’t have to worry about storage or reheating. I brought them along on travel to try out. Not outdoors, just hotel in foreign country to make sure if I can’t find anything decent locally or something that I have something to fall back on. I have to say I am impressed with the quality and flavor. I had a little too much water because I didn’t have anything to measure with. This actually tastes like food. Very pleasantly surprised and look forward to trying the other flavors.
You can never go wrong with Beef Stroganoff! Especially not Peak Refuels. I've tried a lot of different brands and this is by far the best.
This one one was very delicious and flavorful.
We bought the Peak dinners for our earthquake emergency kits. But many don't make it to the kit, they are very good and get eaten before they get to the kits. Time to order more you never know when you may need them. lol
My go to. Always have with me on the trail, but also have packs standing by in my office when at times I work late and can't get out to eat.
I already reveiwed this but it's addicting! I could eat this once a week as a main with a salad or veg.Please don't wai until an emergency to try it-enjoy yourself.
Absolutely the best freeze dried meal I’ve ever had - wish I had doubled my order for my backpack hunt.
Creamy and delicious!
I have to admit I was surprised how good this meal is. Although, I should have expected it from Peak Refuel. Good strong flavor and smooth texture. Definitely on my hit list here.
My favorite meal from Peak! The best!!
I would rather eat PEAK than cook since it is less in price and ready in minutes. Thank You PEAK.!
A dehydrated meal that wasn’t just edible but good! I Looked forward to eating this.
Use for outdoor adventures when hiking or skiing
One of their best meals.
Out on a hike with the family, the hot topic is always food. We have tried many brands of freeze dried food, mostly to keep it light and attempt to satiate our bellies. Not always with success. Recently we discovered Peak Refuel. It is not a stretch to say Peak Refuels Stroganoff is by far the best!! We buy it in multiples and gift it to our friends. Would recommend to anyone who has an appetite on the trail; everyone :)
For being a meal in a bag it has great flavor unlike some other freeze dried meals. Will keep getting this one
It tastes home made!
I ordered a few PEAK meals before my Colorado Mule Deer to see how my body handled them before spending 10 days in the mountains. I heard a podcast about the ingredients and what goes into each meal but I was skeptical about the taste and how little water was needed to rehydrate the meal. The first bite of the Beef Stroganoff was all I needed to know. WOW, this meal is legit good! How the heck this meal rehydrated with just 6 oz of water is like magic. Peak is coming with me for all my back country and camping adventures.
Absolutely love this stuff, have a bunch stocked up and have a hard time not wanting to just eat them every day! Seriously addicting, perfectly flavored, awesome balance
Wow! Took this camping after a loooooong hike and I had mediocre expectations but wow. Wow!!! This was amazing! Easily my favorite backpacking meal of any brand! So much flavor and so filling. I was so sad I only brought one because I would have eaten two! This will definitely be a regular in my hiking and backpacking rotation!
I was a fan of the Mountain House beef stroganoff, bit this is a step above. I'll definitely be bringing this in my future trips as my new backpacking staple. If only there was a bit more in the package. Dang!
The Peak 2 Beef Stroganoff is one of the better freeze dried meals I've had. The flavor is good and the portions are very generous. My packaging said to use 6 ounces of water, this was not enough to rehydrate all of the beef cubes, as some were rather chewy. Next time I make this particular meal I'll use at least 8 ounces of water. Recommended.
Ya'll know how it is when on trail.. Any food tastes amazing. But I must say, this exceeded all my expectations. The night before I ate this one, I had eaten another brand of freeze dried backpacking meals that was pretty lackluster. So when I poured the hot water in the this pack, I didn't expect anything great. No lie though, no exaggeration, the taste was on par with my mom's homemade stroganoff. I hesitate to say this lol because the price of these are already pretty high and any more positive attention might raise the price even mors. But you will taste exactly what you're paying for! If you're planning a 3-4 day trip, treat yourself to at least one of these recipes, I promise you'll not regret it
Yum yum yum yum yum! Best flavor of all PR meals.
Tastes great. Smells great. Looks great. Don’t use to much water when preparing and it’ll be delicious.
All their food taste great .
Soo good. Ordered more.
Good flavor made it with the 6oz of water as called for on the package and wasn't nearly enough water when I looked on the website it said 10.5oz of water. Hopefully they updated the packaging soon.
High rating favorite. Mix well so the mushrooms will soften.
Peak Refuel Beef Stroganoff is my #1 meal. I always have one in my pack as a “ just in case” meal.
Hands down my favorite Peak meal! Don't tell my mom, but this is better than her Stroganoff! This meals doesn't turn to mush. The beef and mushrooms are awesome and add a lot of flavor to the meal, rather than being disguised by an overly salty sauce i've had from other brands stroganoff.
Ate meal on hunting trip very tasty and hot only thing I noticed was meat never seemed fully hydrated after following instructions exactly? That aside way better quality & taste than other brands I have had in the past!
I rehydrated the Beef Stroganoff as instructed. Since I had this meal snow camping, I put the pouch in a cozy, and waited 15 minutes instead 10 minutes. Opened the pouch and what a great aroma. First tasting was perfect. Then I bit into the beef cube and disappointment. It was still crunchy. I stirred the Stroganoff and sealed it for another 5 minutes. Tried again but the beef cubes were still crunchy. The flavors and noodles are great, but the beef cube format is not good. Maybe if it was thinner or in strips, it might have worked. I would not buy this again despite the great flavors.
I haven’t had a terrible peak meal they’ve all been great especially the stroganoff!!
Peak makes some of the best meals either my wife or I have ever had on the trail!! The Beefy Strogey is by far their best meal and SO filling. Its hard to find meals that pack a good amount of protein and carbs while still tasting good, and Peak nailed it with this meal!!!! The huge mushroom pieces are fantastic and the texture of the meat is oh so good. We make ours with a touch less water than they recommend but other than that, OUTSTANDING!!!!
2019 was the first year we used Peak for our Elk hunts and they were a game changer in terms of stamina. Peak meals enabled great recovery day to day over the competition due to the high protein content. Huge difference over a 10 day physically demanding hunt, and Peak meals taste awesome in comparison!!
Great meal, tasted great and good ingredients! Only issue it took a bit longer than instructions to get cooked through.
Nothing like a hot beef stroganoff after a long, wet day on the mountain!
I keep hearing that Peak Refuel is a little more expensive. If you look at the amount of protein you are getting, it’s a much better value. It feels you up and tastes so much better. I am a big fan.
Probably the best pack meal going right now. The flavor is unbelievable. High protein, low sodium, and uses very little water yet rehydrates perfectly. If you haven’t tried this one I highly suggest you do. Make it for your kids or spouse and I guarantee they won’t know that you didn’t make it from scratch. It’s restaurant quality.
I tried the Stroganoff while on the PCT this summer. It is better then the stroganoff I have had in restaurants. My hiking partners said I was to expensive until they tasted it. I can’t wait for it to be back in stock.
All of you at PEAK really are amazing, so far I've only tried the Beef Stroganoff and if that's any indication of the peak you've reached then I'm sure that the rest of your products will not disappoint. You've taken freeze-dried meals to a whole new level with this one, it literally tastes like you've just cooked a real stroganoff at home with fresh sour cream and mushrooms, a perfect choice of pasta and nice chunks of beef, the only thing I add is fresh ground black pepper. Your choice of pasta noodles ensures they will be cooked, the mushrooms taste fresh, the beef tender with just the right amount of salt. I know you made this for backpackers with water being crucial so the amount is just enough, I use just a bit more to increase the sauce. I use your product as a great quick home meal and highly recommend it for emergencies, but if you're out there backpacking and at the end of your day? This will replenish you and you will be glad you chose PEAK. Thank you for making such a great product!
Hey you can actually see the beef in this meal hahaha, seriously though its damn good I had to wait to get this meal cuz it sold out fast but man it was worth the wait.
