Bison Mushroom Stroganoff
Literally, really -10 degrees. The polar vortex has given us all a chill. Time to warm up with some comfort food. Cabin fever has also set in. We invited another cabin inmate for dinner. Let’s cook something good! Thinking Bison mushroom stroganoff will make us all feel a little better about being inside. Pure comfort food. I can remember an awesome recipe my mother in law used to make with beef tenderloin. Mouth-watering. This is a twist on that recipe. For this version I am using grass-fed ground bison, however if you want to splurge, bison tenderloin would be incredible also. Truly flavorful and it is a red meat rich in nutrients. In lieu of the sour cream used in a traditional beef stroganoff, I am using cashew cream. Tasty and oh so healthy! This is our red meat treat night! My husband is thrilled! Actually, so am I.
