Meatloaf - A blend of dehydrated vegetables, spices, and soy protein it is reconstituted with water.

This formula holds together especially well and is popular for eating both hot and cold. If thawed a loaf will cook in 90 minutes at 350º, frozen you should allow at least an extra ½ hour. A batch normally yields 13-14 pans.
Mock Chicken Legs - Regular or Patties - 9# of venison and 2# pork are ground together and mixed with Mock Chicken Leg Seasoning (a chicken bouillon based seasoning) and Chicken and Rice Soup. Patties are formed and then rolled to resemble a drumstick, coated with a mix of Corn Flake Crumbs and corn meal, and placed on a skewer. This is a favorite with kids and quickly prepared by frying in oil or baking. [We also offer these in breaded patty form.]

Vacuum Tumbled Marinades* [Steaks or Roasts]

Buffalo – Burgundy Pepper – Butter Garlic - Cajun – Chipotle – French Onion - Greek - Italian – Mesquite - Teriyaki

All Vacuum Tumbled Marinades listed above: $1.50lb - (5# min.)

*Vacuum Tumbled Marinades:
Meat tumblerA process of marinating that tenderizes the meat at the same time. Meat and liquid marinade are placed in a stainless steel drum that has two "fins" protruding on the inside, the air is removed creating a vacuum inside the drum, the drum is then rotated. During rotation the meat rises and falls which helps to breakdown the cells allowing the marinade to penetrate, while tenderizing at the same time. Marinated cuts are more flavorful, moister, and cook faster than plain cuts.

(Please keep in mind that we only process legally tagged deer, and do not have retail sales of venison.)

Baraga: Seasoned - U.P. Recipe - A boneless roast seasoned with a blend of salt, pepper, spices, and MSG. Made out of pork or beef in the supermarkets found in the Baraga and L'Anse area of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We have found this to be a superior flavor for venison, and like to use the Top Sirloin for making this roast.

Black Forest Roast: Bacon, Mushrooms, Swiss - A boneless rolled and tied roast made from the loin (backstrap), Sirloin Tip, or Round. The meat is unrolled, sprayed with olive oil, seasoned, and stuffed with bacon, mushrooms, and Swiss Cheese. Furnished with a Pop-up Timer, it is roasted at 350° or grilled over medium heat until the timer pops. After timer pops, remove from heat and add a slice of Swiss Cheese to the top of the roast, tent with foil for 5 minutes before serving.

Cordon Bleu: Ham, Swiss - A boneless rolled and tied roast made from the loin (backstrap), Sirloin Tip, or Round. The meat is unrolled, sprayed with olive oil, seasoned, and stuffed with deli ham and Swiss Cheese. Furnished with a Pop-up Timer, it is roasted at 350° or grilled over medium heat until the timer pops. After timer pops, remove from heat and add a slice of Swiss Cheese to the top of the roast, tent with foil for 5 minutes before serving.

Imperial Roast: Salami, String Cheese - Originally named an accordion roast because of it's appearance, it's made by thinly slicing the Sirloin Tip (without cutting all the way through), seasoning with Italian Seasoning, and then rolling String Cheese and hard salami into each slice. Because of the multiple surfaces this roast cooks much faster than a traditional roast. Furnished with a Pop-up Timer, it is roasted at 350° or grilled over medium heat until the timer pops. After timer pops, remove from heat and sprinklewith shredded mozzarella cheese. Tent with foil for five minutes before serving.

Monte Cristo Roast: Pork,Ham,Turkey,Swiss - Inspired by the Monte Cristo sandwich, it is a boneless rolled and tied roast made from the loin (backstrap), Sirloin Tip, or Round. The meat is unrolled, seasoned and stuffed with thin sliced pork, deli ham, smoked turkey, and Swiss cheese. Because it contains pork it should be cooked slightly longer than our other roasts. Roast at 350º or grill over medium coals until the internal temperature reaches 155º on a meat thermometer, remove from heat and add another slice of Swiss cheese to the top, tent with foil for five minutes before serving.

Montreal: Bell Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms, Mozzarella - A boneless rolled and tied roast made from the loin (backstrap), Sirloin Tip, or Round.
