Thirty years ago I spent several weeks at a beautiful mountain lodge in Red River, New Mexico. When we arrived, the aroma of this dish greeted us. It was delicious, so I asked for the recipe and it's been a favorite ever since. Nowadays, my married daughter likes to prepare it for her family.
From Lisa VanEgmond of Annapolis, Illinois, a favorite traditional dinner becomes fuss-free in the slow cooker. Tender sirloin steak in flavorful gravy is served over noodles for a home-style meal your whole family will request time and again.
I just love cooking with ground beef, especially when the result is a rib-sticking and economical dish like this. I serve it over poppy seed noodles for extra flavor.—Jutta Doering, Kelowna, British Columbia
This is one of the dishes my family requests most often whenever I ask what they'd like for dinner. It takes only minutes and it tastes great, so I always honor the request.—Julie Curfman, Chehalis, Washington
"This recipe is great for a game day, either at a tail-gate party or at home," suggests Susan Graham of Cherokee, Iowa. "I often make up the meat mixture ahead of time and add the sour cream when I reheat it just before serving."
I especially like to use my slow cooker on hot summer days when I want to keep my kitchen cool. I’m always trying new recipes for different functions, but Stroganoff is a favorite I turn to again and again. - Roberta Menefee, Walcott, New York
Mix the sauce in this creamy, comforting dish with the noodles or pour it on top; either way, it’s excellent. Soak up the hearty flavors with a slice of warm buttered bread on the side. —Christina Nabert, Poplar Bluff, Missouri
When I was growing up, this is the recipe I'd request Mom to make for my birthday dinner. It's so easy to put together, making it perfect for special occasions as well as every day.—Melissa Norris, Churubusco, Indiana
