Above Venison Stroganoff served over a bed of yellow rice on 07-03-13 and was outstanding!

NOTE:  I like to prepare this late in the evening and it will be ready to serve for lunch the next day.  What a pleasant aroma to wake up to the following morning.  We have been using this recipe since the early 1980’s.  Mickey Porter March 15, 1999 with assembly pixs below on January 5, 2003.  Click on below thumbnails sequence pixs for a larger screen view:

My bride almost had a stroke when I added the above 13 inch diameter “waterless” cookware pan to our 20 year old plus set of Townecraft pots and pans.  This pan cost about 1/4 of the original purchase price for the entire set!  Notice I am practicing the “waterless cooking technique”  go ahead and grin!   My bride is a lot smarter than myself because there are plenty of pots n pans available that are just as good and not as high dollar either as the Townecraft set. 

The venison stroganoff is served over a bed of rice with a good Texas style garlic toast and a cold glass of ice tea or filtered water. 

I call this “fruits of the harvest”
