Amandas Store Cupboard Essentials Meat

Cottage Pie


There is a wide variety of canned meat products available to suit every taste and pocket – from traditional favourites such as mince with onions or Steak and Kidney Pie, to spicy alternatives including chicken curry and Chilli con Carne.

Used with other ingredients, canned meat can help you cook up a balanced, affordable and nutritious meal. What’s more, it couldn’t be easier to take a can off your store cupboard shelf and create a meal for the whole family in minutes.

Amanda says: “Canned meat products have traditionally been perceived as full of additives and unhealthy, but they are sealed and preserved by pressure cooking food in the can – in fact, canned meat can be great for minerals such as zinc (for male fertility and a strong immune system) and iron, which can help prevent tiredness, stress and even thinning hair and poor concentration.”

Canned meat is really easy to turn into tasty meals. You only need to reheat it because it is already cooked, so why not try it as a nutritious alternative to chilled or frozen?
