My grandson loves to cook and this was his first year in "Foods" for 4-H. He decided to make this for the "Foods Review". As a kid that likes to challenge himself, he decided to try this with rabbit (as his great uncle raises meat rabbits). The only thing we "changed" was using 1/2 can of beef broth and 1/2 can of chicken broth. (I find beef broth can be too salty and a bit "heavy" for such a mild flavored meat as rabbit. Also since they raise their own shiitake mushrooms, he used those and sauteed them in butter first and added them at the end. The rabbit Stroganoff was OUTSTANDING! Our 4-H here prints out the recipes that the kids submit and everyone that was there and(that got to taste it)gave it rave reviews!! Even the judge was really impressed and thrilled to get the recipe! Served over his own HOME MADE egg noodles this recipe turned out wonderful (as his "Super Star" rating at food reviews attests). I told him anyone can use soup to make their sauce for stoganoff so learning how to make your sauce from a roux and making a "scratch" recipe is a way to learn good cooking habits. Everyone came up to him afterwards and were asking him about the recipe (and we can't wait to make this with venison, wild turkey, even turtle! This recipe is definitely a "keeper"!! I "supervised" but let him do ALL the preparation and cooking and was there to answer questions. I don't believe in "doing it for them", it's the kid's project and pass or fail, the kid does it!
