CrockPot Beef Stroganoff


A Simple CrockPot Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Beef stroganoff was one of the first dishes I learned to make as a young adult. I had a recipe that had been given to me by a friend's mother. For a number of years, it served as my standby when cooking the first meal for any guy I dated. It was well received too. It seemed that most of the men I met, loved anything with beef in it. Later, as I became a busy professional and wife, time became more critical. Arriving home after a nine hour day at work only to rush into the kitchen to make this favorite dish was just overwhelming.

Like most women, I learned to adapt! I took my favorite recipe and altered it to use in the crockpot. It reduced the overall preparation time and allowed me to do part of the work in the morning before leaving and the other half after arriving home. The crockpot beef stroganoff recipe on this page is the result of this transition to the slow cooker.

The Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 gloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons cooking sherry
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup beef broth chilled

Preparing Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

  1. Cut sirloin steak into 1" cubes. Brown it in a skillet with hot oil. Drain.
  2. Combine beef, onion, garlic, and mushrooms in the crockpot.
  3. Combine tomato paste with beef broth, then add sherry. Pour over ingredients in the crockpot.
  4. Cook on low for approximately 7 1/2 hours.
  5. Whisk cornstarch into chilled, 1/4 cup beef broth and add to sour cream. Stir to mix well. Add to crockpot, stirring again.
  6. Cover and cook for an additional 30-40 minutes. Do not allow it to boil. It will thicken as it cools.

This easy beef stroganoff can be served over cooked rice or egg noodles.

Yummy hub! I was thinking of trying your recipe when I saw that it needs to be cooked for 7 1/2 hours. Does it really take that long to cook? I can't imagine how much gas I'll be using for it.

This sounds great, and I always love things I can put into the crock pot. Since I work at home this way dinner can be ready when the rest of my family gets home and yet I can still get my work done.
