Four simple steps to avoid tossing freezer-burned game meat
#3 BRINE, MARINATE OR SEASON
If the damage goes deeper than just the surface of the meat, it’s time for more drastic measures. Brining the meat can rehydrate and tenderize it, and prevent moisture loss during cooking. A flavourful marinade can accomplish the same thing, and help mask any off-putting odours. Similarly, recipes that involve heavy seasoning with bold spices can counteract any freezer-burn flavour or odour—think barbecue sauces, chili and curry.
