Buffalo Stroganoff

Ingredients

1 pound ground buffalo meat

4-6 cloves garlic (minced)

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/8 tsp white pepper

1 tsp olive oil (or vegetable oil)

1 lb sliced mushrooms (baby bellas if possible)

1 lg onion (diced)

1/4 cup dry vermouth

16 oz. sour cream

1-1/2 Tbsp course ground dijon mustard

4 cups cooked egg noodles (we use whole wheat noodles)

2 tsp "Better Than Bouillon" Beef base (or 2 cubes beef bouillon)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Spray a 13 X 9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place buffalo meat in a large skillet; season with salt and pepper. Brown the meat until it is no longer pink. Drain any fat from the meat (buffalo will have very little) and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in the same skillet until hot. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is tender.
  • Add the vermouth and the beef base or bouillon. Cook for about 2 minutes and add the mushrooms. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and mustard until well combined.
  • Stir in the buffalo meat.
  • Put the noodles in the greased casserole dish. Pour the meat mixture over the noodles and stir until well coated.
  • Bake uncovered for about 30 minutes or until heated through.

**This will easily feed about 6 people.

***Regular ground beef can be substituted for the buffalo meat but the buffalo meat is very nice, low in fat and extra lean.
