Bresaola - Nitrate or Nitrite?

gommista | Jan 6, 2011 08:38 PM

I want to make a venison bresaola with a fresh rump roast from a Sitka black-tailed deer. I have dry cure #1 (w/ sodium nitrite) but no dry cure #2 (w/ sodium nitrate). Can I use sodium nitrite only or should I freeze the roast and get some dry cure #2 in the mail and use that (as is called for in the recipe I have from Charcuterie)?
