Tender bite-sized slices of venison cooked with egg noodles and covered in a tangy creamy sauce. If you like pasta and spicy foods, this is a must-try! It’s so filling and has only 313 calories per serving, which is 1.5 cups. Did someone say diet-friendly?
This is another one of my “empty the pantry” creations that turned out well. I sliced an eye of round into tiny bite-sized pieces and marinated it in Worcestershire sauce for a few hours, making it tender. For the sauce, I just started pulling spices out of the cupboard that I thought would be good and it was. I love it when throw-together creations turn out well.
