Simple Venison Stroganoff Recipe

Simple Venison Stroganoff Recipe

This venison stroganoff recipe earned me the pleasing compliment of “you’re going to make me fat” from my husband. This actually isn’t the most fattening thing I cook, but the quantity of the meal that my husband shoveled down his throat was rather prodigious. He would get fat if he kept up that pace every night. This recipe is great for a weeknight, or a weekend. If you are in a hurry, like I was tonight, take a shortcut by using a stroganoff pasta mix such as the one made by Bear Creek.

A helpful tool for weeknight stroganoff

If you are making weekend stroganoff, or simply have more time to spare, here is a great recipe for the stroganoff base: Ingredients:

  • one package egg noodles, cooked (or cooked potatoes, or mashed potatoes, or rice, or bread) – whatever you use, this needs some kind of starchy base to be poured onto
  • one large onion, diced
  • 1 small package mushrooms (or as many or few mushrooms as you want)
  • butter
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 pound venison loin, fat and sinews removed, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 8-ounce container of sour cream
  • splash of brandy
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper – or Venison Seasoning

Prepare noodles according to package directions (or prepare your other base, such as mashed potatoes). Meanwhile, fry the diced onion in butter (use canola oil for a more healthy option). Temporarily remove the onions from the pan.  Season the venison with the salt and pepper, or the venison seasoning. Turn up the heat in the fry pan and add more butter or canola oil. Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes until they start to brown. Add the garlic and venison and sear for a few minutes, turning the meat chunks occasionally.

  Add the splash of brandy Рif you would like to, light it on fire! Only do it if you can do so safely. Add the sour cream and simmer for a couple of minutes. Pour this mixture over the egg noodles and enjoy!

If you choose to make the “weeknight” option, prepare the stroganoff mix according to package directions while the onions, mushrooms, and venison are frying. Add the extras to the stroganoff mix when both are complete.
