Grabill Beef Chunks 13 oz., Case of 12
Our premium beef chunks are exclusively from the chuck tender cut. The chuck tender is the center of the chuck, a superior cut compared to what you'll find in other canned products. Thirteen ounces of meat is sealed in the can with no water added, then cooked in a pressure cooker. Chunks average 3/4", and our customers love their excellent texture and flavor.
You can actually save money with our quality canned meats, even though they cost a little more than refrigerated meats. Sound backward? And that's not all; we're also going to tell you that these meats easily do things that regular fresh meat can't. Sound crazy? Well, hear us out...
Imagine being approached by someone who asks you, "Would you like to buy a can of electricity?" That might seem strange, but consider an analogy: The national average cost of electricity is less than ten cents per kilowatt hour. With that ten cents worth of power you can light a 40 watt bulb for 25 hours. Now imagine that a salesman at your door offered to sell you some canned electricity, the same one-kilowatt quantity, "for the bargain price of $3.00." Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But people actually do buy quite a bit of canned electricity, which is just another name for batteries.
“This is the best canned beef I've every purchased! I appreciate the fact that it doesn't have additives like MSG, Hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or other unnatural flavoring additives.” – Gary Q., WA

We wouldn't suggest replacing all the power you get from the wall socket with battery power. But for many uses, "canned electricity" is so useful and convenient you'd probably have a hard time getting along without it. Think about those cans of electricity in your flashlight, portable radio, camera... the list goes on and on. Considering what it can do, in fact, canned electricity actually is a real bargain. And our canned meats offer the very same value, with one big exception: The cost difference between our canned meats and the "uncanned" kind is miniscule compared to the premium we gladly pay for the convenience of canned electricity!
"Where's the Beef?" Fresh meat is terrific! You pick some up when you're grocery shopping, put it in your fridge, maybe your freezer, and use it in delicious stir fries, roll-ups, casseroles... burgers on the grill. But then something happens... it's gone! There's more at the store, but the store is there and you're here. Or you need it right now. This conundrum generally has three components: Availability, transportation cost, and time.
Availability: Your menu plans call for some meat, and you're fresh out—pardon the pun. Of course it's possible that you never forget to buy enough, but then you probably never lose your keys or misplace your glasses, either. (If this is true, we don't want to hear about it. Really.) For the rest of us, it happens. And when it does, going away to pick up some meat hasn't been factored into our plans and may not be practical. At such times, having a variety of excellent canned meats to select from means you don't have to change plans or do without... you just reach for a can of quality, delicious canned meat, without skipping a beat. Sailboat owners are among our most avid canned meat customers.
Transportation cost: Ordering our canned beef chunks for delivery to your door won't involve buying any gas at all. Leave the mileage off your car—FedEx comes through your neighborhood anyway!
Time: It's money, they say. If you know what your time is worth in "dollar terms" you can easily figure out how much an extra trip to the store dings your budget. But time is more than money too. Time is the opportunity to do what you want to for a while... and for most of us, some extra city driving isn't high on our wish list. And there's more: Our meats save you preparation time. There's no trimming or cutting to do, and since they're fully precooked, you just heat and serve!
“The flavor was superior to the big box store brand that I've been using. I'm very impressed and am now ordering it by the case.”

Preparedness & Shelf Life: We're being advised from many quarters, today, to have some food on hand for one kind of emergency development or another. A variety of circumstances can create a short-term or even long-term need to have food on hand. Food that doesn't require refrigeration, in the event that power goes out for a while. If you don't want to live on beans, macaroni or tofu indefinitely, our canned chicken, canned turkey, canned beef & canned pork will put some great meat on your plate. Our canned meats are guaranteed to remain good-as-new for five years, but customers have told us they've enjoyed them after far more than five years of storage. In fact one customer stopped by the cannery with a can sealed 18 years before. Upon opening, the taste and texture were excellent... after 18 years! The only thing likely to shorten lifespan is attack by outside moisture rusting through the can, and preventing that is as simple as storing the cans in a dry, clean area.
We offer two ways to purchase our quality canned meats. If you know what you want (maybe you're already back for more), a case is twelve cans. Net weight of each can is 13 ounces; some natural juices cook out during pressure cooking, and can be used in your cooking. The can measures 4" in diameter by 2-1/2" tall outside. We used to sell larger cans but we greatly prefer the current sizing because you don't have to open so much at one time. If you want to try before you order by the case, we offer a sampler pack.
Compare to other canned meats and you'll find that they use inferior cuts compared to what goes into our product. Another significant difference in all of our canned meats is that they're salted only lightly, not excessively as so many canned goods are. Past buyers have appreciated our superior quality... we believe you will too!

By William M. in VA on 4/11/2016 - Verified BuyerSince my brother has been disabled, I've been seeking ways to make his homemaking easier. While I was working on the West Coast and he was back in Virginia, I began with sending him freeze-dried entrees. Good, but something missing. When I came back and cooked some of his favorites - Chili and Spaghetti - using Grabill Country Meats canned beef I'd ordered from from Plain Hill Grain, we all agreed it was the best we'd ever come across. Until I showed him the empty cans, he thought both recipes were done with fresh beef! I've now bought several cases of each of the selections. The tests we've done with the products we've ordered from PHG give us confidence that we're prepared for any "interruptions to service" the East Coast hurricanes or snow storms can toss at us.
