This is a delicious way to utilize the shoulders of deer or elk. The process takes a little time but is well worth it. The curing gets rid of the gamey flavor of the venison. You may add one tablespoon of pickling spice if desired for a more intense flavor.

Directions

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Stir in the curing mixture, brown sugar, pickling spice, and garlic powder; stir until dissolved then remove from the heat. Pour 6 cups of cold water into a 2-gallon container, and stir in the spice mixture. Place the boneless venison into the brine, cover and refrigerate.
  2. Leave the venison in the refrigerator to brine for 5 days, turning the meat over every day.
  3. To cook, rinse the meat well, place into a large pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 4 hours. Remove the venison from the pot, and allow to rest for 30 minutes before slicing.

This was easy, and when I got done it tasted almost like corned beef! It was amazing. I used it to make corned venison sandwiches. I would use it any way you would use corned beef.

Used this last year for first time. Will use it every year !!! I made three roasts, no time to cook them so wrapped and froze. Gave to my son a few weeks later. Only got a spoon full!!!!! from the first one he made,him and his friends ate the rest. I think you will love this ,if you like corn beef.
