cubed lean venison
ground black pepper
minced green bell pepper
This is great! I can everything but the back straps, and it tastes great from head to tail! And it does not matter if its an old buck or a little doe it always comes out delicious!
You don't state what size jar you are using, pints? If so, quarts should be processed for 90 minutes, correct?
Very good, very easy, great way to use venison. I always do venison this way. When butchering, I save the back straps, loins, jerky roasts, and some for burger or brats. Then I can the rest. It last years and keeps the flavor. Extremely fast and easy to pull out, warm up in a pan, mix in some corn starch/water for gravy, then serve over mashed potatoes or noodles. You should try if you are canning capable.
In the past I have done something similar but only used kosher salt. The minced garlic and onion add to it. I love having the meat canned - it is super easy to make deer and noodles or stews/soups
I'm not the biggest fan of venison, but this recipe is delicious. We got an old buck this year and I was concerned it might be too game-y. I mostly followed the recipe (without the peppers), but I didn't mix the meat and spices in a bowl first. It produces so much liquid that the spices get well-mixed during the canning process.
I used quart jars (must process for 90 minutes). I placed the cubed venison in the jars with some onion and a few garlic cloves on top. I sprinkled the salt and pepper on top of that. I used 1 teaspoon for the quart and found it to be almost a little too salty, so the next time I made it, I used slightly less than 1 tsp.
It's not the most attractive concoction in a clear jar, but it's really tasty and tender. We gave some to a friend who absolutely loved it. We've used it as is and mixed with bbq sauce, seasoned black beans, or a canned tomato/black-eyed pea mix. It's very versatile.
It's a keeper!
We love canned venison and with several deer hunters in our house this is a great way to use some of the meat. People that swear they won't eat venison, love this and usually ask to take a jar home. :)
This can be processed in quarts too. Just adjust your time in the pressure canner to 90 minutes.
I love this recipe but I do add one clove garlic per quart jar adding equal amount spices, onion,peppers divided up for each jar for more exact flavor. Makes excellant sandwich spread when you open a canned jar up pour into a bowl just add mayo or miracle whip what ever is your favorite and pickle relish mix to combine slather onto your favorite bread and enjoy!
awesome!!!! Better than a roast that has been in the crock pot all day
