Canned meat. I know, I know. When you hear that phrase, your mind conjures up a nice juicy chunk of spam, right? Well today's canned meats are much improved. I also think they're a convenient addition to your pantry/food storage.
The meat is fully cooked, and usually packed in its own juices, although I prefer to drain and rinse the meat as well as pick it over for "questionables." It works great for recipes that call for meat that is already cooked: it can save you a lot of time.
I know a few of you have used canned chicken (maybe pork and beef too?). Leave a comment below and tell me how you use your canned meat.
Here are some suggestions & links from me-
