Directions

  1. Whisk together curing mixture, brown sugar, pepper, paprika, bay leaf, allspice, and garlic powder in a bowl. Rub mixture over venison roast, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Place roast in a bowl; refrigerate for 5 days.
  2. Remove roast from the refrigerator and rinse thoroughly to remove the curing mixture. Place in a bowl with water to cover, and soak, refrigerated, for 2 hours. Drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  4. Season roast with additional black pepper and brown sugar, and place in a roasting pan.
  5. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until a meat thermometer inserted near the center reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 2 hours.

It's almost as good as pastrami you would buy at your local deli. As with most reviews on here I didn't do it exactly as it reads but only becuase I butchered my deer myself and didn't have a roast. What I did have was the correct amount of meat by weight for the curing process. This is actually the easiest thing I have ever made using venison and it tastes great. I took it to work and nobody could believe it was venison. I would highly recomend this.
