Beef Stroganoff

I have mentioned this before - my slow cooker is a life saver.  When it comes to juggling schedules and still having a home cooked meal on the table, there really isn't an easier way than to take advantage of this versatile appliance.  I am always interested in trying new slow cooker recipes, so I was thrilled when Kelly and I got the opportunity to check out Gooseberry Patch's latest cookbook, Slow Cooking All Year 'Round.  I am even more thrilled that we have a copy to give away, as well!

It took me no time at all to find a recipe that I wanted to try.  In fact, I only got to page 18 before this simple and delicious Beef Stroganoff recipe jumped out at me from the "Warming Winter Dishes" chapter.  I love that the book is arranged by season, and I am really looking forward to delving into the "Slow & Easy Summer" chapter when I will make some seasonal veggie-laden meals like the Zucchini Parmesan on page 132.  There are great looking desserts (Peach Cobbler, anyone?) and even a slow cooker adaptation of our favorite cheesy potatoes! Filled with a variety of soups, appetizers, main dishes, and desserts, there really is something for everyone (and every occasion!) in this book.

Make sure you enter to win a copy of Slow Cooking All Year 'Round by logging into the Rafflecopter giveaway at the bottom of this page!

  • 1-1/4 lbs stew beef cubes (I used 1-3/4)
  • 1-1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (10-3/4 oz)
  • 1.35 oz package onion soup mix
  • 16 oz package wide egg noodles
  • (I think adding a can of sliced mushrooms would be a great addition to this, too!)
  1. Place beef in slow cooker.  In a bowl, combine sour cream, soup and soup mix; spoon over beef.
  2. Cover and cook on low setting for 4 hours.
  3. About 15 minutes before serving, cook noodles according to package directions; drain and stir into beef mixture.  Warm through.

Difficulty: easy
Time: 5 minutes prep, 4 hours cook

  6. Widower guy here. My wife was a wonderful cook, and even though I'm no slouch in the kitchen either, I gave this a go, and boy-oh-boy am I glad I did. I look for meals that can be prepared on the weekend and last a few days. This one might last till tomorrow!
    Fine job.
