Ground Elk Stroganoff


3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 lbs. ground elk (deer, antelope, goose)

1 sweet onion finely chopped

1 large shallot finely chopped

1 oz. dry sherry

8 oz. sliced mushrooms

1/2 cup venison stock (or beef stock)

1 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/4 teaspoon pepper

8 oz. sour cream

1/4 cup chopped parsley

salt to taste



  • Heat butter & oil in pressure cooker with lid off, on brown or saute setting till sizzling.
  • Add the ground elk, onion & shallot. Cook till elk is browned about 8 – 10 minutes.
  • Add sherry and cook till reduced by half.
  • Add mushrooms, stock, lime juice, garlic, allspice, & pepper.  Securely lock the pressure cooker’s lid. Set the cooker for 15 minutes on high.
  • Prepare your favorite noodles on your stove top as the stroganoff cooks.
  • Let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes before performing a quick release on any remaining pressure
  • Stir in sour cream. Taste for salt & pepper. Serve over buttered noodles with a generous sprinkling of chopped parsley.

(If you do not have a pressure cooker simply simmer, covered, on your stove top approximately 90 minutes, or till meat is very tender before adding sour cream.)
