How to Make Crockpot Beef Stroganoff - Step By Step
This recipe couldn't get much easier. Seriously, 5-minutes of prep time!
Step 1 - Add Beef to Crock
First, take your cut stew meat, place it in your crockpot, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
Step 2 - Add Remaining Ingredients
Next, add beef broth, mushrooms, onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, Dijon mustard, parsley, and thyme.
Then, mix it together well.
Step 3 - Cook
Cook your Beef Stroganoff on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours. We prefer cooking the beef on low to make sure it gets nice and tender.
Tip: When the Stroganoff is almost done cooking, boil your pasta noodles.
Step 4 - Add Noodles & Sour Cream
Finally, add your cooked and drained noodles to the crockpot and your sour cream. Mix it all up. Then, let it simmer for another 15 minutes while stirring occasionally.
Set the table and enjoy it!!
What Is the Best Cut of Meat to Use for Beef Stroganoff?
For slow cooker beef stroganoff, use stew meat (or a value cut like a chuck roast). The meat becomes very tender as it cooks low and slow.
TIP: Don't use a lean cut of beef. It will dry out and become tough while cooking.
For classic stove-top Beef Stroganoff, It's best to use a tender cut of beef, like tenderloin or sirloin, and cook it quickly, so you don't overcook it.
Tips, Tricks & Substitutions
- To boost this dish's flavor, you can quickly sear the exterior of the stew meat before adding it to the slow cooker.
- You can use regular egg noodles or, for a healthier version, whole wheat egg noodles.
- To make the prep time go even quicker, buy pre-cut mushrooms.
- If you need the recipe to be gluten-free, substitute gluten-free noodles.
- Regular or light sour cream works in slow cooker beef stroganoff. You can also substitute cream cheese in the recipe.
- This dish is even better the next day for lunch or leftover dinner!
What To Serve With It
Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is substantial on its own, but it perfectly pairs with Roasted Brussels Sprouts or a simple side salad.
