Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Recipe
1.5 – 2 lbs beef stew meat
1 onion chopped
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
3 carrots sliced
16 oz. beef broth (or water with bullion)
1 tsp garlic powder
2 bay leaves
splash of pepper
splash of Italian spices
8 oz. sour cream (I always use light sour cream and it tastes great)
½ cup flour
¼ cup water
12 – 16 oz egg noodles, cooked (I usually use No Yolks noodles)
Place stew meat in crockpot. Add carrots, onion, mushrooms, spices and both bay leaves. Pour broth over meat and vegetables. Cook on low for 7 hours until done. Take out bay leaves. In a separate bowl mix sour cream, flour and ½ cup water together. Then pour approx. 1 cup of broth from crockpot into sour cream mixture. Mix well. Pour sour cream mixture into crockpot and mix well. Turn crockpot to high and cook for 20-30 minutes to thicken gravy. Serve over cooked noodles with a roll and a side salad or green vegetable and enjoy!
