.Deli-Style Corned Goose

This recipe has been adapted (slightly) from a corned beef recipe in the Morton Home Meat Curing Guide

Quite simple.... and very tasty!

6 to 8 goose breast filets (4 to 6 lbs)
5 tablespoons Morton Tenderquick mix
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground bay leaves
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Trim, skin, and clean up breast filets (or beef brisket or boneless cut of deer, elk, etc)

In a small bowl, mix Morton Tender Quick and remaining dry ingredients and spices (Do NOT substitute any "meat tenderizer" for Morton Tender Quick)

Thoroughly rub mixture into all sides of breast filets.

Place filets into a plastic bag and close securely. Place in refrigerator and allow to cure 5 days per inch of meat thickness (a week seems to work fine for goose breasts).  Flip bag over several times during week.  Recommend putting it in a plastic container to avoid leakage – it creates its own liquid as it cures.

Place filets in Dutch Oven and add water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer until tender, about 3 hours.
Alternative – bake at 200 for about 3 hours until internal temp reaches 175 – stronger flavor and the meat stays more flat for slicing.
