Venison Shanks

I haven't posted pics in ages.  Not sure if I remember how! lol
This was a venison shank cook I did from a whitetail buck from this year's rifle hunt. 


Some of the venison from rifle season. I always process my own. lol 

I trimmed the shank and used the sawsall to cut it into portions..

I cut around the meat with a knive, then use the saw on the bone..

I gathered some herbs, garlic, tatoes, onions, squash from this year's garden..

 browned the shanks in duroc lard..

Browned some onions, added beef stock, herbs, and the shanks to the pot, Then let them simmer in the drum til tender..

prepped the squash and yukon gold tatoes..

I let the shanks simmer til almost tender before adding the veggies..

ended up simmering the shanks for 7 hours....then called er good.

venison shanks, sittin' on a bed of veggies..... sort of a backyard meal. 

The meat was super tender...

I couldn't resist the marrow...

Wish I would have thought to bake biscuits or bread. I ended up smearing the marrow on a piece of the tender shank. lol

It was a warming meal. Reminds me of why I live in the middle of nowhere and why I enjoy raising food and hunting. It was a satisfying meal!

Hope everyone is staying healthy and happy! The last 2 years have been trying for some. I count my blessings every day. No matter how bad things seem, they could always be worse! lol

Hope these pictures show up. The blog settings have changed since I've use it, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. lol

Thanks for stopping by!
