Every time I try to cold pack jars of meat I get a couple of broken jars. I am going to start adding hot broth first.

We cube the meat then brown it in the over before putting it in the jars. Add water to pan when browning it and add that to the jars

I have always used the hot pack method in the past. I wanted to try the cold pack method because it's a heckuva lot less cleanup.

Good stuff and nice job. I do that with venison every year. Just salt though. I might try the Montreal seasoning.

Never had a problem using the cold pack method of canning meat but I always have a rack in the bottom of the canner and another rack separating the 1st and 2nd layer of jars. I can see where setting jars directly on the bottom of the canner could potentially cause breakage issues.

We can meat all the time. Most people will not even try it because its "canned meat"! Do they think it turns into spam? I would rather eat home canned meat instead of the "stuff" that you buy from the store in a can.

Canned beef or venison is one of my fav suppers and always will be. Throw some sour cream in after it is heated up and put it on some egg noodles with big chunks of mushroom and you will have the best poor mans stroganoff ever

I've found that canning a really crappy roast turns it into a delicious piece of meat any chef would be proud to serve. For this endeavor, I bought the cheapest eye of round I could get. You will never know it was a cheap cut of meat!

I might have to try that Leftlane, it sounds easy enough. I make a package of beef Romin noodles, add half a pint of canned venison and a handful of frozen mixed vegetables to make a poor man's stew. Quick, easy and filling.

If you can find a little ol lady who still makes home made egg noodles it is even better.

Alternatively it can be served on mashed taters with a little salt and pepper and it is just fine. I used to have a little hillbilly couple up in Kansas that would can as much venison as I brought them so long as I tagged an extra deer for them. I don't think these two bought much at the store, there garden was about 3 acres and the old girl made fresh bred every day just like my grandma always did.

I've always cold packed. Add a teaspoon of canning salt and a teaspoon of beef broth per pint of meat. Easy to do and excellent eating.

Are you speaking of “powder” beef broth or liquid beef broth?

OK, its not like I don't have lots of things to do. But sometimes you fellers push my buttons and get me in the mood to get domestic at times. This seems to be one of those moments.

I have 80 gallons of cat meat to grind today so that is what I should be doing. But no, I am waiting for my first batch of canned cubed beef to finish cooking. Just have about 20 minutes to go then have to let it cool.

I used a tsp of canning salt and a 1/2 tsp. of " Kinders" Maple rub seasoning to my batch today. Smells mighty good before cooking. Hope it comes done as well as it smells prior to cooking.

Will post the final cook off when it has cooled.

All done ready to eat.

I've used both but prefer the paste.
