After a busy day at work it was nice to know that dinner was pretty much made for me when I got home. To complete my crock pot venison stroganoff, all I had to do was add sour cream and cream cheese and cook the noodles.
Have I mentioned how much I love crock pots! Not only do they cook during the day for you, they make the house smell so yummy!
My brother and I also made some banana peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. We had a couple VERY ripe bananas and I just happened to see the recipe on Pinterest yesterday.
After a little problem solving – we needed an egg but didn’t have one – the cookies came out delicious. I Googled “egg substitutes” and learned a little applesauce is a good egg replacer. Bonus! I could eat the dough without my brother yelling at me for eating raw eggs.
Crock Pot Venison Stroganoff Recipe (Based on Beef Stroganoff from Sweet and Savory)
1 lb Cubed Stew Meat (I used chopped up venison chops)
1 Can Golden Mushroom Soup
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup with Garlic
1 Tbs. Worchestershire Sauce
1 Beef Bouillon Cube
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
1/4 Cup Water
1 Packet Onion Soup Mix
4 ounces Cream Cheese
2 Tbs. Sour Cream
1 Lbs. Egg Noodles
Salt and Pepper as needed
In the crock pot, add both cans of cream soup, water, worchestershire sauce, bouillon cube, onion soup packet, and onion. Stir until mixed well. Add the stew meat. Turn on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours, until meat is very tender.
About 30 minutes before you are ready to eat, add the sour cream and cream cheese. Let cook for at least 30 more minutes.
Cook your noodles and serve.
Take a look at dessert…
