2018 Australian Patrol Ration 1 Man 24 Hour MRE Review PR1M Meal Ready to Eat Taste Test

  • Published on May 25, 2018
  • This Australian Patrol Ration 1 Man is a 24 Hour MRE used by ADF Special Forces and recon teams on LRRP missions. The mains are freeze dried and other components switched out for lighter ones reducing the weight to 2 1/2 lbs. And with minimal reduction in caloric content. Amazingly fresh food, yet seriously lacking closure devices to those main's pouches. No gusset, no problem.

    I think you were meant to mix the noddles with the teriyaki sauce.

    A decent looking ration. The rehydrating involved in the meal could be quite troublesome if you're time is limited though.

    I've always loved your videos, Steve. Between your thorough reviews, knowledge, and just all around aesthetic, I dunno which is the best part.... BUT now I especially love them because they put my 9 mo old to sleep. "Nice."

    i fear the Australians are going to get whooped in battle, thanks to an MRE that has complex blandness, and superficial sustenance...where's the freeze-dried scrambled egg in sizeable portion, with chicken, green onion and hot, black peppered tomato paste...?

    The sweet soy sauce from the noodles is Kecap Manis. It's an Indonesian sauce that's available in most large Australian supermarkets these days. Great with noodles unsurprisingly.

    Gotta be honest with you, that mi goreng is actually a repackaged indomie from indonesia, it’s the same seasonings and dried instant noodles

      The wet condiments are vegetable oil with some garlic, chili sauce and soy sauce. The dry ones are supposed to contain msg, other flavorings and dried shallots.

    Too much spice in the meal means more water consumption. It's not about 'offending palates' at all.

    Why would you open down the side and not from the top? That way you could seal it with the rubber band.

    Steve, try using one of those common, office metal clips used to keep a thick sheaf of papers together. It's not, 'unmilitary' to use one. Any soldier can get ahold of these metal clips because it's one of the most common office items used. I also used to carry around a small scissors to cut open retort pouches. It's convenient, faster, and cleaner than tearing open MRE pouches. Again, it wasn't 'unmilitary' to use a little scissors since any soldier could keep one on his person.
