Easy Elk Stroganoff

This recipe is DELICIOUS! I will forewarn you though, the gamy taste of the elk does come through quite a bit in this one! 

Easy Elk Stroganoff 

1 1/2 lbs. ground elk meat (or ground beef if you prefer)
1 small onion chopped (optional)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
8 oz sliced mushrooms (optional--my husband hates mushrooms so I did not include them)
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed (neufchatel works great!)
2 C. beef broth
1/2 C. milk (low fat works fine)
3 Tbsp. flour
1/2 C. sour cream (low fat works fine)
1/2 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
egg noodles or rice

Add ground elk, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper to a large skillet and brown on medium or medium-high heat.  When the meat is barely pink, add mushrooms and cook until elk meat is completely browned. 

Add cubed cream cheese to elk meat mixture and melt the cream cheese over medium heat (stirring frequently). 

In a bowl or large glass measuring cup, combine beef broth, milk, and flour with a whisk. Add broth mixture to saucepan and cook over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until sauce thickens.

Remove skillet from burner and stir in sour cream and onion powder. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. 

Serve over egg noodles or rice.
