3.) Beef Stew
This is basically just chili and beans with a few more vegetables, but it doesn’t matter to us! Good MREs are hard to come by, and this is one of the best.
4.) Chili with Beans
All of the best MREs tend to look like brown sludge, but they’re definitely the tastiest!
Whether you were deployed or on base, did these ever make your mouth water after a long day?
5.) Shredded BBQ Beef
This one has more mixed reviews than the others, but is still generally well-liked.
