Last November I bit the bullet and canned many jars of Amish Poor Man's Steak. It had a lot of ingredients in the mixture the canning police says not to can. We have had meals several times during the year from the canned steak with each one as good as the one before. Last night I opened another jar now over a year old for a quick "Survival Supper" I have found if I stir in 3 tablespoons of brown gravy mix (bought in bulk at Sams Club) to 1/2 cup of water and add that to the Amish Steak while it is heating up. It thickens the mushroom soup and makes a nice gravy. I served it with rice, green beans and sliced potatoes all from our food stash. It was a good filling meal.
