We've wanted to cook a beef pho on the trail for a while now, and we finally got to do it during the filming of our brand story video on the Tarn Shelf.
This meal was really quick and so delicious that we'll be cooking it again on our next trip. It's dead simple and quick to cook and also really lightweight.
I love going into my local Asian deli to find new and wonderful things to cook with our pantry range.
*Leave the beef out for a Vegetarian Pho!
Freeze drying is the best way to preserve flavours and nutrients, and it's also the lightest food option which makes perfect sense to carry on your back for days and days...
The total dry weight per serve is only 132 grams!
I really do hope you try this one and please let me know what you think about it or if you have a different spin on it we could add here. Cheers AJ

One of the biggest considerations when hiking is pack weight and how to minimise it. We buy gear based on weight, packability, durability, and functionality - does it do what we need it to do?
Food fits into this consideration too...
