Slow-Cooked Beef Stroganoff

Finished beef stroganoff

I just love browsing around the internet looking at food (don’t we all?). Whether it be on Pinterest, Food Gawker or just the food companies I follow on Google+, I almost get overwhelmed compiling a list of recipes that I must make. After seeing it about five times, Beef Stroganoff was one of those recipes. I made it last weekend and and man, I am sure glad I finally did! Excuse me, let me just check one more recipe off of my cooking bucket list… Okay we’re ready! :)

Beef Stroganoff

I am not a huge fan of beef but I definitely make an exception for this dish.  The beef in this dish is such a tender, fall-apart,  melt in your mouth, comfort food explosion! Plus, it involves a Crock Pot, which mean minimal effort on your part. Next time I plan to use different noodles (I thought I had more pasta in the house when I made this but I was down to wheels). Perhaps next time I’ll use wheat penne, egg noodles, rice or even mashed potatoes!

Slow-Cooked Beef Stroganoff

Warning: Easy recipe ahead!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pound of beef (I used extra lean stew meat)
  • 1 Yellow onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Cup white wine (you don’t have to use wine in this recipe. It definitely adds something special to this dish though. It really makes the overall flavor stand out)
  • 1 Cup broth (beef or veggie)
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Dried sage (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • You choice of noodles

To Do:

  • Toss everything listed above (minus the sour cream and noodles) into a large Crock Pot.
  • Stir it up so the onions, mushrooms, and beef are coated with broth and seasonings.
  • Cook on high for about 3.5 hours or on low for 6- until the beef falls apart with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, cook your pasta according to the box (pasta usually takes about 15 minutes or so, so plan accordingly- when the Stroganoff is just about done).
  • When the Stroganoff is finished cooking, give it a good stir and shred the beef with a couple forks.
  • Stir in the low-fat sour cream.
  • Pour a heaping pile over your pasta and enjoy!
