Under Trail Foods there is a posting about boiling beef in apple cider vinegar. I would like to try this. Does anyone know how much vinegar to add to the water? I doubt that the boiling would be done in straight vinegar because it would be inedible!
I have tried to contact the person who posted the info but have not had any success as of yet.

When I first wrote about Boiled beef in one of my OTT magazine articles..I estimated that it would last 3 to 4 days...

A friend sent some to a lab here in Michigan. Bacteria didn't start growing on the beef until 15 days later!

A Penicillin started growing after 9 or 10 days~ which is fine to eat.

the meat was tested after being in a vat at a medium high temp and humidity added. I am gathering the details shortly from the lab.

The lab tech did recommend that if you use more vinegar it does last longer.. I place the meat in the kettle and cover it with Vinegar, add water to top it off.

any more questions send me a pm.

I cut round steak in to 3"x 3" chunks so the vinegar gets in easier.

Also....I do not guarantee that it will last 12 to 15 days...weather conditions and how you handle the meat will change the shelf life.

I use half water, half vinegar and a bunch of crushed garlic. It never lasts long enough to go bad.

Ahoy!

I have used David's recipie and it has always served me well. I find that more vinegar adds more "tang" to the taste.

I use straight cider vinegar, no water. Really tangy and great at the events I've taken it to.

the trick is to use LEAN i.e. NO fat beef, the fat will go funky in 3+ days, but not the MEAT

I agree with all that's been posted here, and have eaten this stuff for several years. The only difference for me is I put very little cider vinegar in it as the taste is too strong for me; I make sure I eat it in a day or two; I only prepare it for colder weather trips and not for Georgia summer forays. I am pleased to hear about Dave Schmidt's lab tests.

Eat it cold or sear it over the fire to crisp the edges.

On a my first trekking trip in Florida my good freind introduced me to boiled beef. We pulled some off (he made it from a rather large roast) and cooked it with our grits for dinner and breakfast and it was delisious. It was nice to have non-jerked meat to eat.
