Thread: What your favorite deer cut.......NOT loin or straps.....

  1. #21
    I will try and get the recipe posted here in a day or two. Going to be making some soon, have a deer hanging right now. Once i get the recipe dug out, i'll post the recipe here. Its easy, basically roast is just curing in the fridge for a week or so with the spices and cure if i remember right. Then after its pickled i believe you boil the roast. It turns out great. I like doing this with the front shoulder roasts because after its pickled or boiled (not sure which one is actually the cause) all the meat separates from the tendons/ligament tissue real easy. Much better than trying to remove while butchering.

    go to meatman.com. they sell a prepackaged spice and curing packet for corned venison along with instructions. I made one a couple years ago and it turned out real good. Bit drier then corned beef but not so much that you would stick your nose up in the air.

    All the livers out of small does I shoot go to my dad. I don't care for it. Hearts are ground up with the sausage meat other the a few that go to dad. I never was much for eating the gut pile. Ill eat it if its cooked at camp but don't bother myself. Also it took me a while to get the wife over eating yearling does. She would NEVER eat gut.

    The main ingredient for corned beef is Praque powder #1.
    that is a different type of salt that keeps red meat pink & prevents botulism.
    then you add pickling spices, they are easy to find.

    So heres my recipe for corned venison.
    4-6 lbs venison
    5T Morton Tenderquick Salt
    2T Brown Sugar
    1T Black Pepper
    1tsp Paprika
    1tsp Ground Bay Leaf
    1tsp Allspice
    1/2tsp Garlic Powder
    Mix all spices together and rub into meat. Seal tight in a ziploc bag. Refrigerate 5 days.
    After 5 days, add venison to pot of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook 3-4 hours.

    Morton Tenderquick is the praque powder, same thing different name

    This is required to prevent the meat from spoiling during the slow curing time.
    I marinate mine up to 2 weeks. although I cure it wet instead of dry rub.

    yup and a sirloin off a small does is probably every bit as good as the back straps off an 8pointer. But that said I cube them all. There all tender like that and its the same meat and takes as good. Event the back straps off a deer bigger then about a 150lbs go through the cuber. But then I get a lot more choice backstraps then most so I don't have to save them.

    Just found this thread and not too old but Im a neck guy. I like the neck mostly cut to 3/4 inch steaks with tiny bit of salt and pepper. If I cook it as a roast, I sear it in 1/2 cup of oil. Then dump that in crock pot. Cut onion into wedges, 4 big tomatoes to wedges, a red and green bell pepper to wedges. Then a little salt pepper and a tsp of cumin. Usually have it with rice. Im in the process of making my antelope disappear.

    I be alone with a vote for humble stew chunks cut from wherever that's not an obvious steak or roast. Having no grinder, I make a good proportion of these; and have a few recipes for them that have become favorites even over prouder, note that I didn't write "better," cuts.

    Now add some good home mashed taters, or fries and some lima beans, cover everything except the beans with that cream gravy and have a kings meal.

    Pretty much any part of one can be cut into cubes for chile or stew meat either one is hard to beat.

    Liver and heart are (for me) some of the best parts of the deer. Most of the friends and relatives with which I hunt don't even bother to save them, and they say they get tired of me circling gut piles like a vulture. So I pass out a gallon Zip-Loc bag to everybody hunting and tell them just to pop them into the bag if they aren't shot to pieces.

    This second part may seem hard to believe, but my uncle used to be able to slow cook deer shanks (low heat, long time) and they came out so tender and succulent that one would wish deer had eight legs like a spider. I am going to save them and not bone them out to see if I can recreate the magic.

    Not sure of the name- or if it'd qualify here,

    My favorite is that small sort of banana shaped two pieces that are up at the top rear,
    -but underneath the backbone, on the inside of the body cavity.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.

    Ribs
    Roasted long til the meat is almost crispy.

    NOT much meat, but tons of flavor
    Nothing is impossible for the person that does not have to do it.
