The Striped Box Company Pre Packed Dinners

Pre-packed dinners ready in minutes on your gas stove, or microwave, what could be better for the campers on the go.

When we were approached and asked if we would be interested in checking out some vacuum packed food I had no doubt in my mind, free food and ready in minutes, even better. I just needed to find a weekend away as an excuse to make it on the stove!

The Striped Food Company are a company specialising in providing quality pre prepared food, vacuum sealed and ready to cook. They offer a wide range of dishes to choose from one of the great qualities of the dishes, is that they do not need to be kept refrigerated and they can be cooked using a number of methods, including boil in the bag, microwaving them, or emptying them into the saucepan. This is perfect for us campers and caravanners.

They supply the dishes in boxes of 10 and as they do not need refrigerating, then can be stored in your camping gear boxes and are always ready to cook, should you get to site late, miss the shops, or just fancy something quick and tasty for dinner.

What did we think?

We were provided with a selection of dishes and we cooked them all using the various methods available and set to tasting them. The dishes were lamb shank with mint, lamb shank with red wine, coq au vin, meatballs, chilli con carne and pork belly.

My youngest had the Coq Au Vin and and we cooked rice as the sundry dish.  The dish comprised a chicken leg with the sauce.  The chicken leg was certainly very meaty and the sauce plentiful.  A very tasty dish was had.

We also enjoyed the Mint Lamb Shank with rice and the chilli con carne with rice.  The lamb shank was again very meaty with plenty of sauce and made for a delicious meal.  The same goes for the chilli con carne, not too hot, but tasty and filling.

The pouches come with a handy tear in the edge, so no need for scissors to get into the packs to pour the food onto the plate, and are then easily rolled up and discarded.

The great thing about these is the really long shelf life as they are vacuum packed, and there's no need to store them in the fridge

UPDATE September 2010: The Striped Food Company have listened to your feedback and have now introduced three selection boxes with 5 different meals, and two portions per meal, so 10 pouches in total in each box. Full details above.

Overall great meals at value prices and a safe way to ensure you always have food ready to go, in the event of a hold up or spending too long at the beach for the day!
