Backpacker’s Pantry – Shepherd’s Potato Stew with Beef
Is anything more beautiful than land completely untouched by man? Finding those places is a time consuming and tiring process, but it’s worth it at the end of the day when you unpack your bag, set up your tent, and finally get your dinner ready.
The day ended perfectly with Backpacker’s Pantry Shepherd’s Potato Stew with Beef. Savory, thick, filling, and well spiced. This stew brought us right back to our time living in England. It’s like we never left the pub at all.

Preparing the Shepherd’s Potato Stew with Beef is quite simple and straightforward. Simply add 2 ¾ cups of boiling water to the dry ingredients, stir, and wait 20 minutes.
-We recommend mixing the dry ingredients evenly beforehand. Powdered ingredients tend to gravitate to the bottom of the package and become difficult to mix well once wet.
- Roughly 25 minutes to fully prepare.
- Most of the preparation time is simply waiting for the ingredients to steep in the boiled water, which is added directly to the original package.
- Thicker, more robust packaging which resulted in a much hotter meal temperature and most likely helped with the rehydration of the meal.
- No recommendation to mix dry ingredients thoroughly before filling the package with boiling water.
- Extremely thorough mixing needed before and after adding hot water.
Straight from the pub in Worchster, Backpacker’s Pantry Shepherd’s Potato Stew with Beef met and exceeded all our expectations. Thick sauce, robust meat, and fresh tasting veggies.

- Higher quality ingredients.
