However, in all seriousness. I do can my own burgers I take on fishing trips. My friends get a kick out of em. I simply put cooked burgers plain on bun in jars and can @15psi for 90 min.

I also pressure can just the hamburger patty(soy works also) for when buns are available locally. BUT, I can only fit 7 in a jar and buns come in 8pk :x
Now if I could find a way to can the Big Mac! I do love burgers :D
Killer Idea!~ Love it! Your removing the AIR? I wonder if this would work in a vacuum sealer bag?

You're not removing air per se. Just stack burgers on buns on top of each other. I fit a stack of 4 in a wide mouth quart jar. Place lid and ring normally and cook in a pressure canner for 90 min @15 psi. It's the same time/pressure recipe I use to can all our meat. Pork, beef, chicken and yes soy products. Reconstitute and season tvp like ground beef etc. and can just like ground beef. Vacuum sealing will not kill bacteria that processing under heat and pressure will. Be glad to answer any questions via pm if you like. Basically just treat soy products just like meat :D

I am currently out of the "canned hamburger " but will make some soon and post. These are other items in my pantry done basically the same way. Temp/pressure and proper time is key, along with basic canning knowledge. These jars are approaching 3 yrs old. All aspects of food is my hobby/passion and rations is a great part of it. Happy ration hunting! :D

My "Dream" Ration would include:
French RCIR: Cassoulet. Duck,sausages and beans, but Russian Kasha is a close 2nd
Canadian IMP: Espresso,Bun and Orange Pineapple drink.
Russian IRP: Chocolate bar,apple butter and vegetable caviar
US MRE: JalapeƱo cheese and Lemon poppy pound cake.
German EPA : Canned bread and grapefruit drink.
Polish SRG: Crispbread
British ORP: Best snacks

This would be an all but perfect Ration for me
