Homestyle, Brown & Serve/Chunk Style Corned Beef Hash.
Beef, chicken, pork and turkey are made the “old-fashioned” way: Start with very lean meat, cut it into 1-1.5 inch chunks, pack it into the can by hand, add just a dash of salt to bring out the meat flavor, and then pressure cook it in the can. The result is lean and tender chunks in natural juices. The beef tastes like a slow-cooked pot roast, the chicken tastes like baked chicken, and so on. As for our broth, just look at the ingredients, it is just broth, nothing else. The only exception to this is the Beef Broth.
To compare any canned meat products, there are three basic things to look at on the label: 1) is there water added? If there is, then you are losing some meat, some quality. 2) what is the fat content? In canned meats, more fat means lower quality. 3) what is the sodium content? It is common thought that canned meats have high salt content. This is not always true. There are some quality products out there such as these that are not loaded with water, fat, and salt.

Note On Shelf Life
Canned long shelf life food has a shelf life of at least two years from the date of processing. Canned food retains its safety and nutritional value well beyond two years, but it may have some variation in quality, such as a change of color and texture. Canning is a high-heat process that renders the food commercially sterile. Food safety is not an issue in products kept on the shelf or in the pantry for long periods of time. In fact, canned long shelf life food has an almost indefinite shelf life at moderate temperatures (75 F and below). Canned food as old as 100 years has been found in sunken ships and it is still microbiologically safe! We don't recommend keeping canned food for 100 years, but if the can is intact, not dented or bulging, it is edible.
Food cannot be shipped outside the USA.
