Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Fall has officially arrived in Missouri. It’s during this season that I love to try new recipes for comfort foods like soups, stews, chilis and even things like beef stroganoff- which is what was on the menu tonight.

I found a slow cooker recipe for beef stroganoff while thumbing through a recent issue of Cooking with Paula Deen. I remember thinking to myself…"I’m going to be a mother soon and I need all the quick recipes I can find to save myself some time around the house.”

This recipe comes from Carol Poppe, of Mandan, North Dakota and takes the hassle out of making your traditional beef stroganoff- which often takes a lot of time. I have a recipe for tradition stroganoff as well, but when you are on the run and don’t have time this recipe is truly number 1 in my book.

Tonight was the first time I made it and I don’t think I would change one thing about the recipe, except the recipe will call for canned mushrooms and I just bought some pre-sliced store bought ones.

This recipe is perfect for a cold night, paired with your favorite Missouri wine! Go even more local and use beef from a local farm as well as buy some local mushrooms and buy homemade noodles from the farmers' market.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
By Carol Poppe

2 lbs. beef tips
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 can golden mushroom soup
1 can cream of onion soup
1 (8oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained ** I use pre-sliced fresh mushrooms instead
1 tsp. pepper
1 (8oz) cream cheese
1 (8oz) carton sour cream
1 (16oz) package of egg noodles, cooked and hot

In a slow cooker combine beef tips, onion, onion soup, mushroom soup, mushrooms, and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 8 hours (it only took me 6 hours when I prepared this). When done cooking, stir in cream cheese and sour cream and mix until combined. Serve over hot cooked noodles.

I'll have to try this one - thanks! My last stroganoff experiment didn't go so well.
