I love to use my slow cooker but like most people I forget it is in the kitchen cabinet waiting to help me. Slow cookers are great appliances and when used correctly can really make dinner a breeze.
Here are a few family friendly recipes for stroganoff. I like the versatility of stroganoff. It can be served over pasta, rice, potatoes or breads. Most kids love them because they are creamy and can be a fun to eat dinner. Stroganoff leftovers make a great dish to freeze for another meal. To reheat, simply microwave or use a boil-in bag.
Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
1 lb. cubed beef stew meat
½ pkg. onion soup mix
2 – 10.75 oz. cans condensed golden mushroom soup
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ c. beef broth
½ c. chopped onion
4 oz. sliced mushrooms, sautéed
Salt, pepper & garlic to taste
4 oz. cream cheese
1/3 c. sour cream
In a slow cooker, combine the meat, soup, seasonings, onion, Worcestershire sauce and water.
Cook on low setting for 6 hours, or on high setting for about 4 hours. Stir in cream cheese, sour cream and sautéed mushrooms just before serving.
