It's popular if you're poor and can't afford something better then it's consumed with regularity.
How you consume it depends on which canned meat product you buy.
Some like beef stew can be dumped on a bed of rice, others like hot dog chili (chili con carne) on a hot dog.

Chile con carne is the best. Sadly no where to be found in Peru, as with many delicacies. Not only with hot dogs on a bun but a big ol' bowl heaped with onions and cheese.

I´ve always found it odd that chile con carne is such an unknown dish here. All the ingredients can be found here and it is an economic dish to make. I love the stuff.

As already mentioned canned meat is basically poverty food and avoided. Saying that some canned sausage meats can be very nice when grilled so that they are crispy. It can then be added into rice or pasta dishes.

Canned meats are also good survival food whilst
you're quarantined in a bunker.

We´d have "Spam" from time to time as a kid in Canada. Pretty fatty and salty and we always looked down our nose at it. Turns out it is a big staple now in Korea though, and in parts of Japan.

Thanks Alan,

I am trying to understand why canned red meat has no presence in the Peru Supermarkets ...

Option is Canned fish as Tuna ( Atun in spanish)

P.S. Before reading your comments it was in my imagination that Canned red meat was a sort of "delicatessen" , but now it is obvious that is the contrary :shock:

Yeah I've had it in Japanese dishes and spams savoury taste really goes well in the dishes.

We can all be a bit snooty at food but it's amazing how many of these fancy restaurants you go to and sometimes you'd just take a greasy sausage and bacon butty over the posh meal any day!

I don't understand why there is not much of a meat presence at at all, aside from chicken, in Peru.
A delicatessen in Peru would be great!!

Apparently, it is an expensive place to raise cattle. The only reasonable place is in the jungle, but the distance raises the price.

Delicatessen? Delifrance, expensive though..

I've seen some cattle farms on the way to Ica. Scrawny looking cows.

I've seen land to the north and east of Lima just right for cattle, nothing there but llamas chomping on the grass.

When I said cattle farm I was referring to a farm with some cows versus the traditional cattle ranch. Although some have been known to call a cattle ranch a cattle farm.
Guess it depends on where you were reared.

I grew up on a council estate in the North of England - I think I can answer this.

Most things we ate came tinned, a lot of meat was tinned - corned beef (from Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil) Pork Luncheon Meat (from Denmark and the Netherlands) hot dogs and frankfurters (from Germany, Netherlands and Denmark...) but not just meat, a lot of vegetables and fruit came tinned and even pies (steak and kidney pies from Fray Bentos and Tyne Brand...).

Why do we eat it? Because it tastes good. Meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, pasta etc etc.

Curry mackerel on buttered toast is amazing! It's what I have for breakfast most days when I am back in England!
