Goat Prosciutto; Nicely Vivid Red, Well Done Curing Celery Seed & Juice!!!

To maintain the red meat color and prevent spoiling and poisoning from botulism, prosciutto cured with nitrites like salt peter (sendawa) or potassium nitrit. The nitride oxide bonded and reacted with the remaining myoglobin in the flesh and make a red pigmentation. These process get even better when the water is drained out from the flesh. I used to used salt petre to my charcuterie project, but eversince i’m concerning about the health hence I’m using the natural form of nitrate from celery juice & celery salt for making this goat ham prosciutto.

Slicing Goat Prosciutto

Slicing a goat prosciutto or violino di capra is quite challenging for me. First you need to sharpen your knive to get a thinner sliced prosciutto. I’m using small boning knives, i sharpen it using automatic knife sharpener and it’s almost as sharp as surgical scalpel knives. If you had the prosciutto holder, use it to secure and fixation it, but if you didn’t have any, use your left hand to hold it tight while  you slicing the prosciutto horizontally. Slice the prosciutto as thin as possible with a gentle and confident movement, well my grandma gladly do this job for me; at least for the photograph session, lol

Young Goat Leg, Celery Seed-Spices-Salt & Celery Juice = Homemade Goat Prosciutto

The spices and herbs used for making the goat prosciutto differ according to the traditions and your personal preferences. For making my homemade prosciutto do capra i’m using a combinations of nutmeg, celery seed, Szechuan peppercorn, fennel seed, cumin, cardamon, sage, tarragon, juniper berries, black pepper, bay leaf, cloves, thyme, oregano, and rosemary. For the salt, i’m using homemade sea salt that i processed with the spices and herbs until fine powder to made it penetrate better to the meat. The natural nitrate preservatives source for making this goat prosciutto is the celery seed and the celery juice that i added into it.

Salt Curing Goat Leg with Natural Nitrate

The hind leg or ham of the goat salted and cured with the celery juice, salt and seasoning for about 14 days, depend on your goat leg size. During this time the goat leg ham is sit in the refrigerator and gently pressed to drain all the blood that remains  in the meat and flipped over every day.  After the curing process, the goat leg is carefully washed in running water,  patted dry and hung in a dark, good-ventilated environment.  At this point, you can cold smoked the cured goat leg a little bit to improved the taste and induced the smokey flavour on it before hung it to air cured. The  humidity and temperature of the enviroment is the key success of making a good quality of goat prosciutto. The best environment for making cured meat is cold climate with low humidity. The goat prosciutto  is then left until dry and loosen  30 percent of it’s weight, so make sure you notes the weight of the cured beef before you hung it and calculate the 30 percent loss from the freshly cured goat leg weight. When you lived in a tropical country with high temperature and humidity, don’t worry about it, as long as you can set your refrigerator in “dry mode” you can made your own dry cured meat or prosciutto.

The porcini mushrooms infused butter for serving my sous vide Matsusaka beef steak is pretty simple to made.I mixed powder of toasted porcini mushrooms and the remaining mushrooms powder mixture for the beef marinade with  softened butter. All the ingredients must be chilled before mixed, then after the butter and mushrooms powder mixed well i put it in a cling wrapping plastic and then rolled it to assemble a cylindrical log. Wrapping the mushrooms butter once more with aluminium foil made it chilled even better in the fridge. The porcini mushrooms infused butter log then cut into a thick coin and place over the hot seared Matsusaka beef steak, melt a little bit and there you go to enjoy it.This mushrooms butter using clarified butter that really had a lower temperature melting point compare with the regular butter, so easy to melt as you see in the photograph, hence  i need to keep it chilled before serving instead it’s spreadable rather than palatable.

The ziplock package silicone seal then zipped once the air removed from the bag. This ziplock bag submerging method is quite efficient to pushed away the air from the bag.

I let the Matsusaka beef sit in the rice cooker water bath for about 1 hours, don’t get hesitate to leave it longer in the water bath because it’s not a single chance your beef will overcooked, but definitely no further than 2 hours or it turn into mushy because the fat is totally rendered.  The heat source of my rice cooker is on the bottom of the metal pot, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with about 0.5°C range, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made the Matsusaka beef evenly cooked. Do not forget to submerged the vacuum packed beef sirloin completely on the water bath during the sous vide cooking, i’m putting some glass plate for that purpose.

Kobe Beef (Bottom Right) Sous Vide at 64°C with Rice Cooker Waterbath

I slowly cooked the kobe beef using my old rice cooker as a sous vide waterbath. As you can see from the photograph, my waterbath temperature was 64°C , but it’s actually fluctuated from 63 to 64°C if i  put the lid on. I adjust the temperature of the rice cooker waterbath with covering the the meatal pot, the more you cover hence the tempersture will get closer to the maximum temperature when you put the lid on. I let the kobe beef brisket sit in the rice cooker waterbath for about 1 hours, don’t get hesitate to leave it longer in the waterbath because it’s not a single chance your beef will overcooked, but definitely no further than 2 hours or it turn into mushy because the fat is totally renderred.  The heat source of my rice cooker is on the bottom of the metal pot, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with about 0.5°C range, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made the beef evenly cooked. Do not forget to submerged the vaccum packed beef sirloin completely on the waterbath during the sous vide cooking, i’m putting some glass plate for that purpose.

I actually specially ask my fishmonger to save the tuna’s roe for this fish egg seafoood charcuterie project. The Minangkabau descent fishmonger guy actually used to save the roe and bring it to feed his family and never even though to sell it because it’s considered as delicacy, his wife used to make Gulai telur Ikan (Fish Roe Curry) or Pindang Telur Ikan (Spicy sour Fish Roe Soup) with it.

Fresh Tuna Roe with Whole Attached Sac Membrane

How too choose the egg roe for making homemade bottarga ? first step is make sure you choose the very fresh egg roe with complete and unbroken sac attached and covering the roe. Never used any fish roe broken sac because the salt will penetrated too much into the roe and made it too salty and almost unedible once it cured. FRESHNESS is the KEY of DELICIOUSNESS of bottarga, fresh tuna roe used to be bouchy and not too watery or too dry with natural pleasant sea fragrance, never used if the smell too strong or even slight rotten fishy aromas. Choose the ripe fish roe is one where you can see the eggs in the sac they come in, and that they are uniform in color. The watery fish roe is normal, but will take longer time to cure. Unripe fish roe will not work, you must be able to see the eggs; if they are too small, do something else with the roe.
