This recipe will make 1 medium tray*


  1. Slice deer into thin strips, place into a dish and fill with broth until meat is submerged
  2. In a separate bowl mix together spices and mix into dish with meat and broth
  3. If you have a vacuum chamber sealer, run the meat dish through a marinade cycle, otherwise, you can marinate this overnight if desired.
  4. In a sous vide bag or crock pot, add a couple splashes of sriracha along with onion, garlic and bell pepper along with the meat and spice mixture
  5. Sous vide for 2 hours at 129 degrees or a slow cooker on low for 8 hours, high for 5 hours (make sure there is enough liquid in your slow cooker)
  6. Drain off liquid and freeze the liquid (24 hours) or add to a freeze dryer pan (I use ice cube trays) You can also freeze a tray of cheese, diced tomatoes or other fixings
  7. Add drained taco meat mixture to parchment paper lined freeze dryer tray with tray dividers in the 10 portion setting, freeze and freeze dry
  8. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)


Cycle Time:

23 hours 12 minutes


for 60 grams of taco mixture, add 3-4 broth cubes and ⅔ cup warm water and let sit for 3-5 minutes

Add lettuce, tomatoes and fixings to a taco or tortilla shell and enjoy!
