Shrader Family Deer Goulash

Shrader Family Deer Goulash
Shrader Family Deer Goulash

Shrader Family Deer Goulash is a family favorite around here. It’s very simple to make and “it will stick to your ribs” as my family says.

This was one of my Grandpa Shrader’s favorite dishes. He would say, “Eww gosh, it’s goulash! Give me some before I die!” and at family gatherings, he would get mom to hide the goulash until it was time to eat so he could make sure he got some. So that should give you some kind of idea of how delicious it is.

You wouldn’t think it’s diet-friendly because it is so delicious, but it is! It only has 254 calories per serving and a serving is a whole savory cup. It will fill you up quickly and keep you full, too. I guess that’s why my family says, it will stick to your ribs–because it stays with you so long.

Shrader Family Deer Goulash

Prep Time: 5 MinutesYield: 6 Cups
Cook Time: 25 MinutesServing Size: 1 Cup
Total Time: 30 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 254

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground deer burger
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 diced onion (optional)
  • 2 10.5 oz cans of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 of a can of water

Instructions:

  1. Get two frying pans–one for the deer burger and one for the taters. Heat both pans to medium heat and add vegetable oil to the pan you are going to fry the taters in.
  2. Place the deer burger in a pan and crumble it as it fries. Place your chopped taters in the other pan and let them fry until done, which is usually about 20 minutes.
  3. Once the deer burger is done, usually within 7 minutes of frying, drain all of the excess fat. Add the diced onions to the mixture and let it fry until they are tender–somewhat transparent–about 3 minutes.
  4. Then add the cans of cream of mushroom soup, half of a can of water, and the taters. Mix it well and let it simmer for about five minutes.

Shrader Family Deer Goulash is a meal in itself–you won’t need any side dishes, but it’s great with a big fat cat head biscuit! No, a cat head biscuit is NOT made with a cat’s head.

It’s just my way of saying a big fat biscuit–you know, one that is as big as a cat’s head. I don’t know where I got the expression from, but I’ve heard it all my life and I say it all the time.

*Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs. The values here may not be 100% accurate because the recipes have not been professionally evaluated nor have they been evaluated by the U.S. FDA, but were calculated by MyFitnessPal, Inc. by Under Armour, Inc. 

To make this dish more diet-friendly…

  • To help lower the sodium use a low-sodium cream of mushroom soup. If you use Campbell’s Healthy Request® Cream of Mushroom Soup it will not only lower the sodium but will lower the fat and calories as well.
  • In case you need to lower the cholesterol and fat use less fat in your ground venison burger. This recipe was calculated using 80/20 ground venison burger because that’s what most hunters use. If your burger has less fat this recipe will also have less fat and cholesterol. You can use ground venison that has no fat added and it will be just as delicious!

Eww gosh, it’s goulash!

Give me some before I die!
