Slow Cooker Stroganoff

Thanks to Noshing With The Nolands

Nolands Stroganoff 6

 

An excellent blog, Noshing With the Nolands posted a recipe for Slow Cooker Stroganoff. I love stroganoff and I am lazy so I like slow cooker. I tried the recipe (with a few changes) and liked it. So here is my version.

I started by cutting the recipe in half. There is only She Who Must Be Obeyed and I. Cutting it in half makes using a can of beef broth awkward. I hate using 1/2 cans. So, I substituted water and beef base (Oxo, Bovril, etc). I also substituted some sherry for part of the wine. I like a bit of sherry in my stroganoff. It makes me feel refined and tastes good.

Also, I am a traditionalist when it comes to stroganoff. I served mine on broad noodles. The Nolands served theirs on mashed potatoes.

Here is the recipe with my changes:

I started by cutting the beef and measuring the rest of the ingredients. Can you say mise en place? I knew you could.

I mixed in the rest of the ingredients, except the sour cream. I covered and cooked on low for 8 hours.

I slowly mixed 1/2 cup of the liquid into the sour cream. This helps prevent the sour cream from curdling. I mixed that back into the crock pot and turned the heat to high for 15 minutes.

The Verdict

This is a very good stroganoff, real comfort food. Making it the slow cooker makes it so convenient! I will be making it again. Thanks again to Noshing With the Nolands.

  1. Thank you so much for making our recipe, I love that you put your own spin onto it. I agree that the egg noodles are more traditional and I am glad you made it how you like it. Cheers, Tara.

  2. As always you have great step-by-step instructions with pictures. I like that because I’m a visual kind of guy. I also like and agree with the noodles. Thanks đŸ™‚
