Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

**This is the least photogenic food I have ever cooked. It does taste better then it looks, I promise!

Tonight I decided to follow this recipe for beef stroganoff. I am trying to use my crock pot more as well as cook with beef more often. It is hard because I don't really love beef but since John does I try to make it now and then. The meat was very tender and fell apart at the touch of a fork. John thought it was really good and I liked the sauce it made. I did half the amount of sour cream in order to account for personal tastes, but I am sure the original amount would be best for most people. Overall, pretty good!

1/2 pound beef stew meat
1/4 cup chopped onion (I used onion powder)
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of golden mushroom soup
1 jar (2 1/2 ounces) Green Giant® sliced mushrooms, drained (omitted)
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup sour cream (I used 1/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups hot cooked noodles or rice

1. In 2 1/2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker, mix beef, onion, soup, mushrooms and pepper.
2. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is very tender.
3. Stir sour cream into beef mixture. Serve over noodles or rice.


  1. Mmm, I LOVE beef stroganoff! What a great idea to do it in the crockpot. I'll have to try this one.

  2. I love how comforting stroganoff is!
