The polenta is so much more satisfying than the typical mashed potatoes one would expect with stew. It is hardy, filling and doesn’t upset the stomach when hiking. It’s simply comfort food, but with spices and lots of flavor. A solid 2 thumbs up and we highly recommend it.

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking™" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy™. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag™ preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy™ folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.
There’s only one thing you can say about this meal, delicious!!
Delicious. this is a delight at lunch or at the end of many trail miles
After a little prep was as good as you can get at home. Stew was excellent. Flavorful and filling. Highly recommended.
This meal is as amazing as advertised. Tasty, textured, and filling… I love this meal after a long day hiking
One of my favorite meals from Packit Gourmet!! Love the Polenta on top. Super great flavor. After a long day of hiking, it is nice to look forward to a yummy, delicious hot meal!
The combo of the stew and polenta is out of this world! Can't believe this is an option in the wilderness. Thank you creators!
Absolutely delicious, but too many steps for my fast and lite backpacking style. Better suited for the rare instances I am doing short hikes or car camping. Polenta is by far my favorite part!!!
I love the texture and flavor of this meal, and the polenta topped it off beautifully! after reading multiple reviews talking about how it was more 'soup like', I purchased a bag of potato cubes and a bag of mushrooms to add to the mix. These additions filled out the meal and absorbed the extra water making it perfect!
just add water
