removing gamie taste from venison

Hey guys, we just had a venison roast, ribs and steak given to us. My question is this, How do we go about removing the gamie taste? I know the tricks of soaking in buttermilk and read in a post about removing the fat. But money is tight at the moment so can't soak in buttermilk and it is already

    Question removing gamie taste from venison

    Hey guys, we just had a venison roast, ribs and steak given to us. My question is this, How do we go about removing the gamie taste? I know the tricks of soaking in buttermilk and read in a post about removing the fat. But money is tight at the moment so can't soak in buttermilk and it is already frozen so removing the fat before freezing is not an option.

    Also my boyfriend is a little on the paranoid side and is wondering how we can tell if the meat is good(i.e. not left out in the heat too long etc) since we didnt get this one ourselves. Any ideas on either one of this situations?

    Thanks

    Yummmmm! I'm envious - I miss venison - haven't had any since we left WV six years ago.

    We always soaked in milk, not buttermilk - and powdered milk worked just as well as regular.

    As far as the question of whether the meat was left out too long - I don't know, beyond the sniff/look tests.

    Hmm, well I know of the buttermilk trick. Or what if you were to soak it in a marinade overnight. Wonder if that would help any? It would be worth a try. And as for if it's good or not. Well I would think that you could tell by the smell or look of it if it was bad or not. On site that I like to look up things on is Cooks.com. You can find almost anything on there. Might try it and see if you can find anything on there. Good Luck.

    We will usually marinade overnight and as for it being good or not, Like Tonia said

    and the texture -- does it have a sticky feeling ? (when it's thawed out of course). I would only acccept something like this from someone I knew, as well. Not knowing who's hands this meat has been in, is another story (hunting & proccessing) ect.. To many unanwsered questions here..

    First of all, YUM! I love venison, but I too am not too keen on the Game taste, which can actually come from ill-prepared meat. It's not that meat isn't perfectly safe to eat, generally an over-gamey taste is due to someone not skinning the deer well. (They have glans which particularly on the legs, which should not be handled when skinning).

    Anyway, back to your question.... To make the most delicious, melt in your mouth roast that you've ever had, take a Lg Can of V8 juice, 1 pkg of Lipton Onion Soup Mix and 1 roast and 2 onions quartered.
    Rinse the roast under cool water, place the roast and the other 2 ingredients in the crockpot, cook on medium all day. Late in the afternoon add washed/chunked potatoes & carrots.

    This is SO Good even my picky-ass mother loved it, (well, until I made the mistake of telling her what it was).

    That's a whole other post.

    Hugs!
    ~Enjoy!~

    I almost forgot, you can tell whether venison is safe the same way you tell if beef is safe, color, smell, texture.
    Good meats have very little odor. Smell the meat. It should not have a thin slimy coat and color should be rich and natural (not dark,) it should be firm to the touch and not soft mushy.
    ~Enjoy!~

    RIBS: oh man I am so envious .. first off (if you ever get a fresh deer again) the ribs boiled up in water, cook down, it'll start to come off the bone (help it along) .. drain then add BBQ sauce and cook down more and make VENISON PULL SANDWICHES .. oh man goood eats .. NEVER freeze ribs because its going to be harder to get the bone taste from it

    So since you had nothing to do with it .. Rinse down in vinegar (its close to skin and this helps get off any hair that might have gotten left on) .. cut off any fat once thawed .. Boil up in water - then drain about half through - add fresh water, milk of any kind (powdered creamer will work in a pinch) .. cook till its almost starting to pull off - then proceed as above ..

    ROASTS & STEAKS: Rinse with vinegar .. You can marinade in milk .. Cook in crockpot with potatoes & veg

    MISC: If the deer ran, and they had to track it - it will have an adreneline rush which does change the taste and SMELL of the meat (even after freezing)

    Once it thaws - cut off as much of the fat as possible

    If you thaw in water or milk it will help with the taste if its too wild ..

    Personally I wash down meat with vinegar first, rinse well.

    I butcher the meat here at the house .. I always triple wrap, it may sound excessive to some but venison is not something you can replace at local store because it got freezer burn .. Plus I figure I/or family killed it, we owe it the honor of treating it with respect for suppling us with food.
