Easy Deer Salami Recipe
Venison and five ingredients is all it takes to make this recipe. It's no trouble at all. To make venison salami, you need...
5 pounds ground venison
4 tablespoons Morton tender quick
2 tablespoons of cracked black peppercorns
1 tablespoon mustard seed
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly for at least 5 minutes. The mixing action stirs in the spices, but more importantly it improves the texture of the salami. Keep it cold in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours to cure.
Shape the meat into rolls, about 3 inches in diameter. Place the rolls on a cookie sheet or broiler pan and bake at 175 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 hours. Drain and cool. Refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.
Now all you need are a few crackers, some mild cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and pickled jalapeno slices and you'll be set. Time to start munching down the salami. And hey, don't forget the beer!
