Venison Stroganoff

Do you have a deer hunter in your family?  Get tired of eating deer steak and deer chili?  Or just don’t like the taste of deer meat at all?  Well give this Venison Stroganoff a try!  I promise you won’t be able to tell it is deer meat, and it is delicious!

Here’s what you will need:

1 1/2 – 2 lbs. ground deer

1 medium onion, chopped

2 tsp. minced garlic (I was out this time, so I used about 1 T. garlic powder)

1 1/2 c. sour cream

4 T. flour

salt & pepper to taste

1 cup chicken broth

3 T. ketchup

1 package noodles of your choice


First in a large pot, brown your meat, cook onions until tender, and add garlic.  Because you are using venison it is doubtful you will need to drain any grease at all.  Add chicken broth and cook on low heat while you prepare flour mixture.  During this time I would also start cooking my noodles in another pot.

In a separate bowl mix sour cream and flour together until completely mixed.  Add to the chicken broth, and stir in.  Go ahead and add 3 T. ketchup to the mixture.  While stirring allow to come to a boil and thicken.  When your sauce is thickened, you can turn it off and cover until your noodles are ready.

You have two options on eating your stroganoff.  You can separately serve over hot buttered noodles, or you can mix the two together.

Venison Stroganoff ready to eat! Enjoy!

Additional option:  You can also add a can of mushrooms to the meat/onion/garlic at the beginning to make a more traditional stroganoff, but that is not our preference!  Enjoy!
