I got a bunch of these frozen dinners at the same time and didn’t know I needed to read the meat ingredients with such scrutiny. The front says “Beef & Broccoli” but the ingredients give the “beef” a different name: SEASONED COOKED BEEF PRODUCT. Nothing says YUM like that, right? Here’s what this sucker has got inside its fake beef-looking self:

  • Beef
  • Water
  • Dextrose
  • Modified Cornstarch
  • Potassium Chloride
  • Salt
  • Sodium & Potassium Phosphates
  • Caramel Color (guess it would be flesh-toned without some help!)
  • Natural flavors (eh? Polonium is ‘natural’ – what flavors?)

Not as horrifying as the fake chicken… but ewwww. Technically, “beef” could be any part of the cow’s flesh. This could be made from cow butt holes for all I know. That’s probably it. Cow rectums, cow uvulas, cow lips and cow eyelids. The stuff on a cow that no one wants. Yeah, buddy. That’s what’s for dinner! Ok – that’s was what I had for lunch. God help me. The food was adequate. The beef tasted fake – like hydrolyzed protein composite fake jerky treats for dogs – but was flavorful. They’ve definitely got a handle on making the fake particle board beef – it’s the chicken that’s a disaster. So sad that any animal had to die so they could do this leatherizing to the poor creature’s flesh. It’s barbaric. But oh well… 270 calories and are you sitting down? Two whole grams of fiber. HA!
