by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on October 28, 2010

This isn’t fine cooking by any means, but it is quick, easy, economical, tasty and fairly healthy. 

Cheater’s Beef or Venison Stroganoff


  • 1-2 lbs Beef or Venison
  • 1 pkg brown gravy mix
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Slice meat in thin strips & brown in a skillet.
  • Add soup & dry gravy mix to meat and cook until hot & bubbling.
  • Season with salt & pepper as desired.
  • Take off heat, stir in sour cream & serve over rice, noodles or toast.
  • Variations:
  • Use leftover cooked beef or venison.
  • Use ground beef, ground venison or sausage instead.
  • Add sauteed mushrooms or onions.
  • Use a can of gravy or homemade brown gravy.
  • Make your own "Cream of" soup.
  • Use Homemade White Sauce instead of soup
  • Add in 1tsp of onion powder and/or garlic
  • Try using unflavored yogurt (NOT vanilla!) instead of the sour cream.
  • For a true one dish meal add cooked noodles into the pan & stir together.
  • Bonus Crockpot Version:
  • Do not brown meat-just slice & place all ingredients except sour cream in the Crockpot. Cook on low 4-6 hours.
  • Bonus Bonus Oven Version:
  • Prepare as for Crockpot version, but place in a covered casserole dish and cook at 350 for 1 hr in the oven.
