Crockpot Connoisseur - Beef Stroganoff Review

Beef Stroganoff (originally found here)

  • 1.5 pounds top round steak, cut into strips
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) can of canned mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cube beef bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  1. Place the beef in the crock pot, add salt and pepper, onion, mushroom soup, canned mushrooms, water, chives, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and beef bouillon.
  2. In a small bow, mix together the wine and flour. Pour over mixture.
  3. Stir everything together
  4. Cover, and sit and wait and smell the gloriousness for 6-7 hours as it cooks on low. Stir in the sour cream and parsley and cook for 1 more hour.
  5. Serve over egg noodles and ENJOY!

  • Delicious & SUPER EASY to make - [although we enjoyed it a day later than anticipated because I forgot to turn on the crock pot - note it is helpful to plug in the crock pot when you are cooking with it - I spaced out]
  • Lots of leftovers - 2 adults were eating and we are still eating off of it - we both have eaten two meals of it so far - I need to pick up another bag of egg noodles to pour the sauce over
  • I cut the onion just a little because Marc & I don't love onion - we love the flavor but not actually eating them - I used a 1/4 an onion chopped and added some onion powder

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE cooking with a crock pot - there is something glorious about coming home or not having to worry about what is for dinner when the time comes but rather just know that something glorious has been cooking all day.
  • I love love love leftovers as well. Seriously Marc and I love just being able to heat up something for meals rather than having to do all the cooking all of the time.
