WFMW: Milk Bath

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Assuming you eat and/or prepare red meat in your home . . . have you ever been grossed out by the blood? The first time I prepared venison, I just about barfed. 
Me. A Midwestern, meat-and-potatoes raised girl. I never considered becoming a vegetarian, until, well, the blood. A game roast can be particularly bloody, even after cooking. (Double barf.) Thank goodness I can across a tip last fall that has saved me many times since then:
Give red meat a milk bath.
Soak the meat in a dish of milk overnight, in the refrigerator. It doesn't matter what type of milk. I use skim. 
I can't explain the chemistry, but the milk will be pink the morning, and the meat will taste much less "gamey." 
(Ewww. But better, right?)
Pour out the milk (of course, for the love!) and prepare the meat according to your little heart's desire. Enjoy.
