Use fresh or completely thawed frozen meat that is clean and chilled to 36-40degF internal temperature. Use 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz.) of Tender Quick® for each pound of meat, rubbing it into the meat thoroughly. Place in clean, food-grade plastic bag, tie securely, and refrigerate at 36-40degF for 4 to 8 hours to cure, longer for larger or thicker cuts, up to 24 hours. Rinse meat prior to cooking. For brine curing, dissolve 1 cup Tender Quick® in 4 cups cool water. Place meat in brine, using a ceramic plate or bowl to submerge it entirely. Prepare more brine if needed. Refrigerate and allow to cure 24 hours. Rinse meat after brining. Cook meat until done. Follow directions carefully.
