Beef stroganoff is a go-to cold weather meal in my house. Pasta, beef, and mushrooms covered in a creamy sauce - what could be better on a blustery day?
While many dishes are delicious when made on the stovetop or baked in the oven, what you if you let your favorite comfort food classics cook all day in the slow cooker? And have them ready and waiting for you when you walk in the door? Even better, right? Right.
This beef stroganoff recipe is adapted for the slow cooker and of course, it worked like a charm.
Add boneless beef round strips (covered in flour), mushrooms, onion, garlic, cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and spices to the slow cooker crock. Cook on HIGH for 3 ½ to 4 hours or on LOW for 6 ½ to 7 hours.
Before serving, stir in a mixture of cornstarch and water, and cook with the lid off or another 30 minutes. The mixture acts as a thickening agent - leaving you with a nice, thick sauce. Finally, stir in sour cream for some extra creaminess and tang and you’re ready to eat.
Thanks to the slow cooker, when you walk in the door after a chilly day, a comforting meal is cooked and ready to eat. All that’s left to do is pull on your coziest sweatshirt, fuzzy socks, and serve.
This beef stroganoff is delicious over egg noodles or your favorite pasta. Taking your stroganoff to-go? Add the noodles right to the crock and use it as a serving dish at a neighborhood potluck, fall festival, or Halloween party.
