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!
