Meat is not acidic enough to can without a pressure canner......  I have cooked meat, like stew meat in broth and put it in canning jars and then frozen it, letting it defrost in the cooler during the day and then making sure to bring it to a boil when re-heating............

Does anyone know of a way, besides pickling or canning with a pressure
canner, to preserve meats (like to take to events) so that they require no
refrigeration?  Everything I've been able to find on the 'net mentions a
pressure canner. I have a pressure cooker, but not canner and, while the
pictures look similar, I'm not sure they're exactly the same thing.
