Venison Stroganoff! January 23, 2010

Tonight for dinner we had venison stroganoff.  It was incredible!  I truly couldn’t believe how yummy it was.  I’m sure this recipe would be just as yummy with beef too.  For our side dishes, I made steamed broccoli and roasted sweet potatoes.  The steamed broccoli just had season salt added to it (used about $0.60 worth of broccoli).  On the sweet potatoes, I put some olive oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon (used about $0.20 worth of sweet potatoes – were on sale after the holidays).  Remember to click on the highlighted and/or underlined sections for coupons! 

Slow Cooker Venison Stroganoff from


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound venison stew meat – used about 1 1/2 pounds so increased all of the spices slightly too
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper – did not use near as much pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour  – added a little more
  • 1 cup water  – used about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked egg noodles
  • added about 1/4 cup or sour cream about 10 minutes before serving


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Toss the cubed venison with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook the venison in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Once browned, remove from the skillet and place into a slow cooker, leaving the remaining oil in the skillet.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and stir the flour into the remaining olive oil. Cook and stir until the flour has turned golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the water and bring to a simmer, then pour into the slow cooker along with the cream of mushroom soup. Cover, and cook on Low for 4 hours, or until the venison is tender.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the egg noodles, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain. Spoon the Stroganoff over the egg noodles to serve.
