A venison spin on a classic dish my mother used to make. A wonderful dish. This is an oven dish, though a slow cooker or stovetop cooking can be done with this dish. It's wonderful served over rice or noodles.

This was fabulous! I really liked it it was so quick and easy. I used the crockpot because I had a pie in the oven and it turned out wonderful. I did not have an onion on hand so I used some dry minced onion - never the same - and used minced garlic instead of powder. I think this recipe is a 5 but my husband said 3 he thought it was good but missing something - an onion perhaps? Loved the recipe I have two deer in the freezer so I will definitely use it again. I do not feel that it would serve 8 though - at least not in this house! Read More

My husband is the venison eater in the family and he said it was very good. I served it with brown rice and it was a very hearty winter meal. I used the oven method for cooking and followed the recipe exactly. I did have to add some water part way thru cooking because it seemed to be thickening up a bit to much. Simple tasty meal that I will make again. Read More

Pretty good use for venison. Reduces the gamey flavor. I used 1/2 the amount of oil & 1/2 the sour cream (also light sour cream) to cut the calories down even further and I cooked it in my crockpot. I also added a little crushed red pepper since my husband likes food spicy. Served it over noodles. Read More

I thought this was reeally good. My venison was tough so next time I will tenderize it first. But other than that it was delicious. Read More

This was fantastic. So quick and easy. Every time I make it someone asks me for the recipe! I do use less tomato sauce than here and a few more herbs and I also added finely diced carrots to add a vegetable to the main dish. Read More

This was delicious! I made the following variations to the recipe: I dredged the meat in almond flour instead of white flour before browning in half olive oil half butter I forgot to get a can of tomato sauce so I actually used a jar spaghetti sauce (it worked!) I added about 1 cup of red wine to the meat at the beginning of the cook time Crock pot cooked - low for 8 hours - the meat was so tender! - added the sour cream at the end just before serving. Will definitely make this again! Read More

I have used this recipe many times just as written. It is delicious and the meat is so tender. The sauce is perfect and has the right amount of tang from the combination of sour cream Worcester and tomatoe sauce. So good in fact that today I came back to this loved by all recipe this time using beef stew cuts rather than the venison. Thank you for sharing your great recipe. Read More

There were five clean plates after this meal, even from my daughter who isn't really into meat. My husband kept saying, "you need to keep that recipe". It is a bit different than the stroganoff I have made with beef because of the tomato sauce. Don't expect the same flavor, but the flavor was still really good. I followed the recipe, except instead of cubing the venison, I cut it into really thin strips when it was still partially frozen. Combining really thin strips of venison and tomato sauce in the oven for nearly 2 hours yields nicely tender meat. Read More
