I know it is a bold statement to announce that I have found the absolute best way to cook venison. The reality is it’s true! I have based this on “The 3 Abilities.”
1. Ability to Preserve: Does it increase the shelf life of the meat?
2. Ability to Store: Can it be stored long-term at room temperature?
3. Ability to Use: Does it have multiple uses?
Do you take into consideration the ability to preserve, store, and use your meat? Or, are you simply wrapping and freezing?
Bottled meat preserves your harvest for 5-7 years. It will store at room temperature and the opportunities to use it are endless. We use our bottled meats in stew, on sandwiches, and in burritos on a regular basis.
If you are constantly waging war on freezer burn and freezer space, here are the top two recipes utilizing the #1 method to cooking venison.
1. Kody Smith at www.GoHunt.com: Kody’s recipe caught my attention due to the addition of bottled peppers and onions. He doesn’t over complicate the process yet adds a few extra elements that are sure to please! I personally keep it simple; however, I love the idea of throwing in these ingredients. Kody nails it with this recipe and his step by step guide to bottling venison.
This recipe won’t disappoint. As an avid outdoorsman, Kody lends his experience to the vast resources found at www.gohunt.com. Check these guys out! While visiting their site, be sure to read Kody’s other articles. He has got an awesome article on hunting with goats: Opening Day Success, Expectations Come to Fruition.
