Caribou Stroganoff

I have loved Stroganoff since I was a little girl….I think you will love this recipe! It’s great with moose or beef too. And if you prefer a more tender meat, you can use ground meat of any sort. Gotta love it!

Alaska has 32 separate herds of Caribou. Alaska has 32 separate herds of Caribou.

Caribou are large, stout members of the deer family, with concave hooves that splay to support the animal in snow or soft tundra and which function as paddles in water. Caribou live in the arctic tundra, mountain tundra, and northern forests of North America, Russia, and Scandinavia. Although they are called reindeer in Europe, only domesticated caribou are called reindeer in Alaska and Canada.

Caribou in Alaska are distributed in 32 herds (or populations) totaling approximately 950,000 animals. This includes in herds shared with Canada’s Yukon Territory. Although each herd uses its own unique calving area, different herds may mix together while on their winter ranges. Many herds winter in the boreal forest, but during the remainder of the year caribou prefer treeless tundra and mountains where they can get relief from biting insects.

This is one of my most favorite dishes made…
