What is the clear slime that is always on the deer meat? It seems like I can never get it all off. Do y'all worry about it?


Also what is the best way of getting the silver skin off? Seems like I cut alot of meat off trying to get all the silverskin off.

Oh one more question. I had quarters on ice and as I was cutting them up and trimming them yesterday, the meat got down to about room temperature. I then wrapped it and froze it. You think it is ok?

I use a filet knife on the silver skin. Takes forever and a dang day to get it all off. I just do the best I can with the slimy stuff.

Same thing I do. I think its like a membrane skin(same thing is on the back side of BB ribs). Your meat should be fine. We have had this discussion before but it makes it easier if you don't soak it in ice as the liquid is what makes it so slimy. I set my meat on towels in spare refrigerator and let it age and bleed for a couple of days changing out towels as necessary.

We just cut it off like when you filet a fish. We get as much of it as possible, and yeah some meat is wasted. I get i all and don't mind some excess meat in there, cause i use the scraps for coyotes. I also cut off any ends that fill like they got a little burned with the ice. I think your meet should be fine. We just cut one up last wed that had been shot and deboned on sunday. most of it was in ice chest with some ice, the rest in a fridge. Just as long as it doesn't smell bad you should be ok....

Good idea. I am gonna do that next year. It is a pain draining water and adding ice.

I do this too. It works well.

I only cut the silver skin off of the tenders and loins. If I'm grinding the meat, I don't cut all the silver skin off.

Its a connective tissue covering the muscles. Its called epimysium, I only know because I just took anatomy and physiology.

Though I clean as much of it off as I can, I have never had anything tell me that it affects the flavor.... the short answer is no.

Room temp is fine.. It's better than hot, The deer run hot body temp so the room temp is actually cooler.

A meat tenderizer will solve the membrane issue.
