Cleaning out the deep freeze means....

So J is a big hunter, plus we get 1/4 of beef or pork every so often, so the deep freeze (yes the one in the Adams family basement) is stocked with all kinds of meat.  Some of the stuff I don't even touch...especially if its in a black trash bag--usually that's a head of something and I don't mess with that.  Anyways, its almost deer season and its time to clean out the freezer, which means getting creative with meals.  Last night was excellent, and here's what I did.

There were some deer backstraps that were a little old, so I knew they were going to be a bit tough.  So...I marinated them in 1-2 ounces of Jim Beam (yes friend M--alcohol isn't just for drinking  ;-)) , bit of molasses, touch of honey, chipotle sauce, pepper and garlic, and a bit of water, put them in the oven at 150 for about an hour--and they were fabulous!!  Yum--something about the Jim Beam mixed with the sweet and spice--made those things real nice!  Put it with some scalloped potatoes, teriyaki  peas--I think J thought he was in heaven--delicious!


  1. Sounds delicious. Any leftovers?

  2. I love this new idea. Alcohol makes everything better!
