Seeing as how I just did a post on groceries and saving money, this post is a great follow up. I guess I need to start at the beginning, our son loves deer jerky. None of us hunt or wish too. His boss does, so he told Travis he would kill a deer for him and take it to the processor if Travis would pay for the processing. We thought most of it would be turned in to deer jerky and about 20 small bags were. But our son also just came home with two roasts and about 15 pounds of ground meat. I have to confess I am a city girl and haven't ever really even eaten deer meat. In other words I need your help. I know that I will slow cook the roast in a crock pot with some seasonings. Anything special I need to do with the ground meat? I will just be using it for pasta, tacos and hamburgers. If we like it, the ground meat alone should last us three months. The processing really wasn't that expensive either, just $85.00, and he has enough deer jerky to last him all year.
