Default Venison Pastrami with Hot German Tato Salad

I had two small venison roasts in my freezer (from the hind quarter), wanted to use them up before deer season.

I used the Tender Quick method to corn them. This is enough to do about 5 lbs of meat... I used maybe 1/2 of it...

5 tablespoons Tender Quick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground bay leaves
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

I mix this up, rub on the meat, then shake off any excess....



Wrapped and let cure for 5 days....



I soaked in fresh water overnight, because something came up and I was interrupted...

Then I rubbed with a mixture of garlic, juniper berries, bay leaves, mustard seeds, allspice, onion powder and lots of cracked black pepper...



Threw them into the smoker with some apple wood and some tatos...



Made hot german tato salad with the smoked tatos....



The venison pastrami turned out great...







The tato salad was good, but the dressing on the salad overpowered the smoky flavor IMO. It was good though. :)

Very nice! Sure wish I had access to game meat. How does venison pastrami taste compared to regular?

Thank you Ron, Harbormaster, Allenave and MayDay!!

MayDay, the flavor of the pastrami is very similar to beef...hard to describe...no wild game taste, but I can still tell that it is venison.
Does that make sense? lol

Allenave..I usually use baked or boiled potatoes for the salad, but wanted to try it with some smoked. Also...you can peel the potatoes.
I used 5 cooked tatos
browned about 5 pieces of bacon
cooked some onions and leeks in the bacon drippings
added about 1 TBs of flour to the pan
then added...
1/3 cup of water
1/4 cup of cider vinegar
2 TBs of sugar or more if needed

Makes kind of a sauce...
Add the cubed potatoes and gently toss.
Season with salt and pepper and top with crumbled cooked bacon

It's supposed to be served warm.

Hope this helps ya Allenave.
