I need some ideas

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.
