I am looking for a way to can beef. It doesn't seem to be available in the retail stores here in Nebraska.
Go to SimplyCanning.com. This is a great site for canning beef and other meats. Good Luck. Mary
If you are using the hot water bath, you need to boil the water for 3 hours.
You will need a Pressure canner. I cut my beef in chunks, pack it tightly into a sterile jar raw. Work it in to take out the air bubbles. I add 1/2 teaspoon of canning salt per pint. Wipe rims with a paper towel dipped in vinegar, add lids, apply rings. The time/pressure depends upon where you live. Where I live I pressure it at 10 pounds of pressure for 75 minutes for pints, 90 minutes for quarts. I would NEVER can meats by BWB method. It is way too dangerous. Yes, I know some have done it, but my family is too precious to me to attempt it.
I've never had canned meat. How does it taste & what do you use it for? Would it be sort of like stew meat?
