I need some ideas

8 posts in this topic

I'll be helping process deer next weekend, as usual, but this year I have a vacuum sealer and would like some ideas of what kind of marinades to seal into the roasts and chops. Has anyone tried this? I'm open to any kind of suggestions.

That sounds like a great idea and I'm curious as well about sealing the marinade in with a vaccum sealer. Also, if anyone can provide the following marinade recipe I would greatly appreciate if you would post as I lost the recipe. I did a search and cannot find it. Here's some of the ingredients if someone can fill in the rest......olive oil, soy sauce, worchestire, ketchup and if I remember correctly, french dressing? It might have been something Deitz posted? Nonetheless, I lost the marinade recipe and it was absolutely awesome. I marinaded the roasts for something like 30-36 hrs. then either grilled or panfried until rare (rare being the key on the roasts). Sliced thin and then mixed up a Heinz 57 / horesradish dipping sauce and it was awesome. Thanks in advance.

Hey lady, how you been?

Unfortunately I don't have any recipes off hand, but I will call my uncle who does some stuff like that and see if he has any ideas up his sleeve.

I will try to dig some up some recipes but the one thing that will cause some problems is the vacupac will want to draw out the juice so you will want to freeze your meat and juice for a couple of hours just so you will get a good seal but now your juice can,t penetrate the meat unless this is for supper that night just prep the day before and put in frig to thaw. Depending on the portion size you might be better off putting the meat in quart jars with the jar adapter. I use this method when I make spaghetti sauce and it works great and the only thing that you have to be careful of is to make sure to leave a little room at he top of the jars for expansion(about 1 inch)then freeze.I will put up 12 to 15 quarts when I make it.

I think I'd do the meat sealing first and then when you wish to eat it, then do your thing. I too have a sealer amd to not care form the moisture that will come though the machine.

Good luck!

Well, I've vacuum packed other stuff with moisture in it without too much trouble. My sealer has a moisture setting on it that does a pretty good job, so I'll give it a whirl and see how it does. I just wanted to try it. Besides, it is fun to play with and will give me a break from my designated post as 'grinder girl' when we start processing.

Thanks for the input and keep the ideas coming...

My buddy does this with his ducks. I tried it last year and it was fantastic. I have the food saver which has a moisture control on it also so i am going to give it a whirl with some roasts this fall.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
