Felixx's adventures with Meat

Postby felixx » Wed Nov 11, 2015 12:38 am

So I like meat!
I wanted to share some creations as I make them.
Today I made Venison Sausages.
I used 20lb Venison (red deer)
2lb wild pork mince
4lb pork fat
1lb home made wild pork bacon
1 cup red wine
liberal helpings of thyme, cumin, salt pepper, mixed herbs

I minced all this twice

Packed into pork casings

Pics to come

Well today I filleted 3 nice rainbow trout about 5lb each
rubbed em down with a cure of 2/3 brown sugar and 1/3 uniodised (kosher?) salt
then put em in the fridge
Tonight I drained the juice and moved the ones on top to the bottom and bottom to the top

Tomorrow I will dry them in my bradley with the ducting fan attachment I made so that tomorrow night I will hot smoke em

ALSO
I got 2.5 kg of topside roast
sliced it into 3/4" slices
soaked in vinegar for 30 min or so
then placed in 80% salt, 20% brown sugar, chilli flakes, baked and ground cumin and coriander seeds
I left it for 6 hours and rinsed it off in vinegar (to get excess salt off)
And coated in more crushed cumin and coriander seeds

Now it is sitting in my biltong box for 36 hours or so

Pics tomorrow

Nice mate.
Those trout sound awsum... good size.
I got my first melborne snapper for the season last night and roasted it with broccolini and roma tomatos on my weber go anywhere over charcoal...delish.
Not that big though. Was about 1.5 kg.... tiny compared to my nz catilog of snapper but delicious all the same. Image

So true - every white South African has at least one friend of family member that now lives in OZ or NZ!
(rant)Those that could moved away to NZ and OZ - those that could not are stuck with JZ screwing up what was still good. (/rant)
By natural selection the average South African could consume his own body weight in meat in a few days.
For those that can afford it, a normal portion of meat is about 500g to 1kg (1lb to 2lb) per person.
We see a balanced meal as a chunk of meat in each hand!
Chicken and fish are vegetables!
Many years ago Chevrolet advertised the perfect combination in life to be "braaivleis, biltong, sunny skies and Chevrolet"!

Enjoy your share of our culture!
