Wow! I'd love to hear more details on the cutting. (And again, I'm so impressed that it doesn't bother you--especially when you're pregnant! I can't even look at/touch meat for the first 16 weeks of my pregnancies!)I would love to hear what kind of knives you recommend and how you keep them sharp.Thank you!
Yep - you get every morsel when you butcher it up yourself.And even better, there are the bones! I pressure good the backbones, neckbones, and rib bones down. I get broth to can for soups and a shredded meat that is good either in soups/stews or as a BBQ beef type thing, or great in tacos, burritos, etc.Yes it is a long process... I usually sit down at the kitchen table and do one small piece at a time so it doesn't get too warm.One memory I'll never forget is when we had an emergency butcher of one of our dairy cows - broke a leg... I was up PAST midnight on Christmas Eve wrapping hamburger... Not my fav memory - exhausted - but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!marci357
Marci I bake my bones for stock.Then throw them in in a crock pot with veggies. Never thought of pressure cooking them. Do you get more flavor/stock that way?
