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.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
