Larry the Cable Guy Git-R-Done Grub Biscuits and Gravy

When thinking of southern comfort food breakfasts, nothing stands out more than classic biscuits and gravy. Soft, doughy biscuits smothered in a peppery pork sausage gravy. Many great mornings are started with these on the plate.

At some point, someone decided it would be a great idea to package this deliciousness into a frozen, microwaveable meal, and slap blue collar redneck comedian Larry the Cable Guy on the box. The Git-R-Done Grub Biscuits and Sausage Gravy is one of a large line of Larry the Cable Guy licensed foods from North Dakota based Bektrom Foods.  I was fortunate enough to have found this at my local dollar store.

As per the instructions on the packaging, I microwaved the biscuits for 3 minutes with the corner of the lid up.  After 3 minutes, the instructions advised to spoon the gravy over the biscuits and then microwave for another minute and a half.  Spooning the gravy over the biscuits, I found it had a very lumpy consistency and looked like poorly mixed paper mache paste.  Despite it’s white/grey consistency, it also looked to have a translucent liquid layer encasing the globs of gravy.

Upon plating the biscuits and gravy, I found that the extra one and a half minutes of heating did nothing to change the consistency. Cutting through the biscuits revealed a tough-as-hocky-puck exterior and an interior denser than osmium.

The biscuits had a chewy mouthfeel. Every consecutive chew required more effort than the first. If it weren’t for the gravy, I don’t believe there would be any flavor to this dish.  That is not to say the gravy was palatable.  Returning back to the similarity of paper mache paste, I’m certain the gravy tastes exactly like what you would imagine paper mache paste to taste like if it were made with the salty tears of whoever green lit the 2006 box office hit Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector.

Among the swamp of gravy, I was able to find a small chunk of pork.  Any decent pork gravy will have small chunks like this. The pork contained within this gravy however, tasted as if it did not contain the necessary preservatives to keep it from spoiling.

The news however is not all bad.  A portion of all Git-R-Done Grub profits goes to the Git-R-Done Foundation. This foundation, started by Larry and his wife, and largely funded by them as well, supports a myriad of causes including research and support for children with Hip Dysplasia.

Summary

While the Git-R-Done Grub biscuits and sausage gravy fall flat in execution, they slightly made up for in taste. That isn’t to say they tasted great, but I can say I’ve had far worse.

If your intent is to buy these as a way to support the Git-R-Done foundation, you can save yourself the indigestion and donate directly on their website!

  2. I got the biscuit and gravy grub and it was excellent. You must have gotten a bad batch or over microwaved the product–biscuits in the microwave get hard quickly. The gravy was good, as well. It had an authentic southern flavor. Southern gravy has the sausage in the gravy for flavor; it’s made with flour, milk and pan drippings from cooking the sausages.

  3. Much better if first step is 2.5 minutes not 3, when stirring cut biscuits up and spoon gravy over. Last step 45- 50 seconds only. Not as good as home made but for sure better directions.

  4. It should be call Git-a-refund I also saw it at my dollar store so I thought I would give it a try.Big Mistake.Like the saying goes “You git what you pay for”. So I follow the directions.Open the corner and microwave for 3 minutes.I take it out of the microwave,open it to scoop gravy onto the biscuits.The first words out of my mouth were WTF!!. I could barely see the biscuits they were so small.The packaging is way misleading on the size of the biscuits.Larry The Cable Guy is a sellout just to put his name on a shitty product and should be ashamed if himself.Nicejob Larry.

  5. I think that you can’t really get a much better quick breakfast for the $1 spent. I keep them around for when Im on the run. They taste pretty good and deliver as promised. If youre eating these as a steady diet, then your problems are bigger than the consistency of the gravy. I like them for what they are, a tasty quick meal for cheap.

  6. I tried one yesterday and it was nasty! The biscuits were OK, but, the gravy was obviously instant. Too bad I bought two of them. I didn’t like it, but, maybe my mom will. I’ll update when I find out!
