    BeachGirl's Note:

    I've been making this comfort food forever, and it's DH's favorite. I especially like the creamy gravy over rice or mashed potatoes. If you want a stroganoff-like gravy, stir in 8 ounces of sour cream at the last minute, and serve over wide noodles!

      Venison lovers take note, this is wonderful! The whole family ate it! Even my picky eater! I used loin steaks and put the white wine in it and I served it over noodles, yum! Next time I will try it with the sour cream. Thank you for a new and delicious way to prepare venison.

      Great taste, easy to prepare. Will be using the same recipe with beef when we run out of venison. Especially good with the sour cream over wide noodles. The long simmer really tenderizes the meat.

      I have to admit that I have never cared too much for the taste of venison....UNTIL I TRIED THIS RECIPE!! Absolutely delicious! Followed your ingredient list exactly and didn't add any other seasoning. Served it with some garlic mashed potatoes and seasoned green beans. My guys loved it and so did I.
