I am getting ready to make some snack stix using these
1 package Mandarin Teriyaki snack stick
1 oz Sure Cure
4 oz of Carrot Fiber
4oz Encapsulated Citric Acid
19mm Collagen Casings
2 Quarts Ice Cold Water
Would I use more water since i’m using carrot fiber?
Would I mix the sure cure and carrot fiber with the water?
@harpo79 No, mix both the cure and the carrot fiber in with the meat and add the water, doing it the other way wont really hurt anything there is just no need and the carrot fiber might bind up the cure too efficiently. For water just use the 2 qts, that is more than enough. Using more won’t help your bind and it will increase your cook time. Remember if you are using encapsulated citric acid to go right to the smoker!
I hope this wasn’t too late to help!
@Jonathon The sausage was for Easter family dinner that didn’t happen because too many people were sick. The bottom round was sliced deli style & packaged for future French dip & roast beef sammies.
@PapaSop It was great on the steak. I’ve never had the flat iron cut before. I was really surprised how tender it was. After I pulled the meat from the smoker I was concerned that I may have overcooked it as it felt a bit firm. I coated it in a blackening seasoning and seared it with smoking hot butter until I got a decent crust and then let it rest for a few minutes. It was perfect.
