40 years ago or so you used to be able to get freeze-dried pork chops -- from Armour or somebody. They came in a tin and looked like perfect, balsa wood replicas of a real pork chop. There was some kind of seasoning packet that you mixed with the water to re-hydrate. They were quite good.
Yes, I remember loving those, expensive as they were at the time.
Recently I saw a posting with a picture of a MRE item - Freeze Dried Pork Chop !!!
I may have to look around to see where I can buy them.
