I think the picture came out kind of weird for this tasty meal.
One of the ways we save money on meat is hunting. I am sure that this brings mixed feelings from those of you that read this, but it works for us. You could substitute another meat in this meal if you don't use venison.
When my hubby first started hunting deer I was nervous how I would cook it. I had grown up with a father that hunted but we only had two different meals that were made with the meat. I knew that would get kind of boring after a while. So I am trying to find some new ways to use the meat.
Here is one of my family's new favorites:
I first brown about 2lbs of venison with 1.5 tbsp of oil and 1.5 onions chopped.
When the meat is brown I add a bag of wide egg noodles, 2 cubes of beef bouillon, and a package of fresh mushrooms (8oz???). And I add 2.5 cups of water. Then bring this to a boil.
After it comes to a boil, I let it simmer until the noodles are soft. At this point I add about 2cups sour cream and stir it through.
The meal feeds our family at least twice and heats up fairly well.
