Meat Glue Gone Bad

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I picked up some meat glue off of RichTee last year and have used it a few times with good results. Although the shelf life is suppose to be 3 months if kept vac sealed and frozen, I'd thought I 'd give it a try again and see if it still good. Well it's either out lived it useable life or the applicator (me) didn’t know what he was doing, which is quite possible.


I took some strips of pork loin and lean butt and glued them together hoping to get a checkerboard look when sliced. Dusted them all down with glue and rolled them up in plastic wrap like a fatty and let the glue do it's thing for a day. Next day I unwrapped it and it looked good, that is until I started to rub on the cure, then it started to come apart at the seams.

Before the coming apart stage:





I'm not one to throw away good meat so I moved on and cured them for 7 days .

Pull it out yesterday and slow cooked it at 250 till I got it to 158 internal then let it rest over night.


Here's the finished product:





and a little sliced view:




I'll have to work on my technique to make it prettier, my original plan was to make a box press and glue it with some pressure on it. That would have eliminated to voids in the middle.


Tastes real good though, and I think it will make a great deviled ham! LOL

Thanks for looking,
