You guys think that Venison suet would be too gamey for Mincemeat pie? I don't think that you will be able to taste it anymore than you taste the venison fat in ground meat. My ol' lady is insisting upon using beef suet.

Why would you be adding it at all????

The recipe I have calls for very lean, well cooked meat. Actually, they call for boiling it for like an hr.

Traditional Mincemeat pie uses suet and most people use beef suet. -see this recipe here for an example, it is from a cookbook from 1861: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Traditional-Mincemeat-Pie

Mincemeat pie is a old world recipe, but I am pretty sure Americans traditionally did it with venison suet around the time of the first thanksgiving as most of the meat was game.

never have seen that before, but I would use the beef suet, venison suet tends to get waxy and globy, once cooled.

Welp. I watched Rinella's T-giving episode last night and he made mincemeat pie using venison fat. He used bear fat for the pie dough. He said something interesting about the history of Mincemeat pie. Its roots are in the Mediaeval period when people had to eat a lot of rancid meat, so Mincemeat pie was a way of disguising the rancid meat taste.

I just watched on the meat eater show the host used rib meat and feed a bunch of people that aren't hunters ect. They said it was some of the best pie they had eaten. He had cooked it in a pressure cooker first.

Use venison fat and anyone even imagines they taste something funny, and you're to blame.

Use beef fat, and you're in the clear.

Use beef fat, tell them you used venison, then while they're complaining that it tastes nasty, not like the regular way you SHOULD have cooked it, and you're chuckling to yourself all day long!

If you do Mincemeat Pie right, you can't tell that there is actually meat in it. Most Americans don't seem to realize that it contains meat.
