This made excellent sandwich meat for my husband's lunches. It was a little peppery for my tastes, but that's easy enough to fix. I will probably make this again, assuming my father in law gets another deer next season!

Oh my gosh, this recipe is absolutely scrumptious!!!Tastes just like corned beef. The only change to the recipe was I added some peppercorns and a few bay leaves to the boiling water, then cooled the meat. I sliced it thin and piled it high on Rye to make reubens. Everybody loved them!!! The color of the venison was perfect and even more tender than corned beef. Thanks for posting will definately be making again!!!!!
