Canning Meat WITHOUT A PRESSURE CANNER!!! The Method We Have Used For 3 Generations

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

WARNING! there are real risks of Botulism and Death with this method! If you try this at home do so at your own risk and consider these links below to inform your decision.

and the official USDA warning

” Pressure canning is the only recommended method for canning meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetables. The bacterium Clostridium botulinum is destroyed in low-acid foods when they are processed at the correct time and pressure in pressure canners. Using boiling water canners for these foods poses a real risk of botulism poisoning.
If Clostridium botulinum bacteria survive and grow inside a sealed jar of food, they can produce a poisonous toxin. Even a taste of food containing this toxin can be fatal.”

The risk appears to be reduced if you fry the meat for 3 min before serving or boil it for 10min. and don’t feed it to infants. Our Human bodies have become less resistant to bacteria over the past 50 years so what was a lower risk a generation ago, is a higher risk now. Please take the time to make an informed decision on this. There is also a higher risk of problems at higher elevations, so please look into that as well. I hope this helps and stay safe!!!



We might seem insane for doing this without a pressure canner, but our families have preserved meat (venison, beef, bear) for 3 generations with no ill effects….EVER!!!

Roger goes through the process he does and this meat stays preserved for up to 2 years.

One great thing is that if we lose power, we still have meat. Forget to take dinner out of the freezer? No problem. Pop a jar and make dinner in 10 minutes! This is aged-School Convenience Food!

Not to mention delicious!
