Venison Canadian Bacon with Dove and Wild Sage

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is a bit of venison from the doe I got this winter...

I butterflied two roasts, used a tenderizer on them so they would lay flat... then rubbed with my dry cure...

1TBS of Tender Quick (per pound of meat)
1 tsp of sugar (per pound of meat)
1 dried cayenne pepper
1 TBS black pepper corns
1 TBS juniper berries
1 clove of garlic... minced.

Crush and mix everything together.

I let the bacon cure for 3 days, wrapped in the fridge.
Then rinsed and soaked in cold water for 2 hours to get rid of any cure.

Gathered a bit of wild sage...

Deboned a few dove breasts that I got last hunting season...flattened them with a meat tenderizer.

Layered the dove breasts on top of the venison bacon...

Added a bit of sage and a few minced jalapenos for a slight kick..

Smoked on my wood burner with a bit of mesquite....

Along with some fresh eggs and cactus jelly toast, it was kinda tasty.

Thanks for checking out my venison canadian bacon!

Looks great! That has got to be good w/the eggs!! Can you taste the dove pretty well after it is cooked, or does it end up tasting like deer? I would suppose that there is a texture difference that would be really good! Thanks for posting.

Thanks Gene, Trout, Mballi and Dave!!

Trout, the venison tastes more like canadian bacon. The dry cure really changes the flavor and texture. You can still tell that it is venison though.
It also adds a lot of flavor to the dove breasts. I didn't season the breasts because I knew there would be enough flavor with the cured venison, sage and jalapenos.

Hope you try curing some venison sometime.. it's pretty tasty stuff. :)

Thanks again. smile.gif
