Want to know how I can deer meat?
Step 1 - cut all your meat up into roughly 1 inch pieces. I did this one day, stored it in the fridge overnight and bottled it the next day.
Step 2 - Layer chopped green peppers and onions in the bottom of your jars. I used about 1/3 of a large green pepper and 1/3 of a small yellow onion in each quart jar. Then sprinkle with 1/2 t. canning salt.
Step 3 - Brown the meat. You can add salt and pepper while you do this if you like. It does not have to be completely cooked, just browned. It will cook in the pressure cooker.
Step 4 - Place the meat in the jar.
Step 5 - Add hot water to the jar, then place the lid and ring on.
Step 6 - Process in pressure cooker at 10 pounds pressure for 1 1/2 hours for quarts. 1 hr 15 min. for pints.
What do we use this deer meat for? I want to expand a little over the next year, but mostly we use it for either a quick sub sandwich or on nachos. Since the meat is already cooked, all that is required is heating it up. Can you say dinner in 5 minutes? Seriously!
