Deer Tendons and Sinews

Deer sinew (DS) is derived from limbs of Cervus nippon (Sika deer) or Cervus elaphus (Red deer). DS is one of the best known and highly valued food and medicine. According to Chinese Materia Medica, DS possesses the function of strengthening tendons and bones, nourishing the liver and kidney, benefiting yang, and expelling wind damp, for the treatment of arms and legs weakness, pain of waist and knees, and twitch; consumptive disease, dizziness, and epicophosis; cold intolerance; rheumatism arthritis joints pain, and so on. DS contains rich collagen with a content of ~80%. Collagen constitutes a family of proteins presenting in the extracellular matrices, taking up about 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content; unfortunately, our body loses collagen at a rate of 1% per year, starting at the age of 25. It is ubiquitous that collagen is responsible for maintaining the structural integrity of vertebrates and many other multicellular organisms, such as skin, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The collagen peptides are extensive used as health food in Chinese drugstore. Some researchers reported that collagen peptides supplementation could strengthen skin elasticity, improve the bone density, and alleviate some arthritis symptoms.

Two Ways of Preparing Deer Tendon (鹿筋二法)

“Deer tendon does not soften easily. Slow simmer for several hours until the tendons are soft (you can use a slow cooker or pressure cooker to speed it up). Discard the liquid.
Next, braise the deer tendon in pork broth and then after that braise it in chicken broth. Add autumn sauce, wine, and starch to thicken and reduce the cooking liquid.

The tendon can be served as-is as a white-cooked dish without addition of anything else. They can also be braised together with ham, winter bamboo shoots, and shitake until they take on a reddish hue and then served in a bowl without reduction. To finish the white-cooked dish, sprinkle it with finely ground Szechuan pepper.”
