Re: Fat to Meat Ratio in Venison Burger
We just grind it straight there is almost zero white in it, no fat added or pork added.
If I am going to make something from the deer grind later that needs pork (like all the stuff I am making next weekend) I grind the pork fresh then mix with vension grind. No reason to take up valuable freezer space with pork fat added to it all, + not all things need pork fat (tacos, chili, sloppy joes). Do it when the recipe/end product calls for it.
Most things like Kolbassi, summer sausage, etc..will call for anything from 80/20 to 50/50 and that depends on taste. I go about 75/25...more than that defeats the purpose of a lean deer meat IMO.
