Slow-Cooked Stroganoff Recipe

I've been preparing Stroganoff in the slow cooker for more than 20 years. Once you've done it this way, you'll never cook it on the stovetop again. It's great for family or company. —Karen Herbert, Placerville, California

"Great taste but cannot get it to thicken much. Don't like cornstarch, I use flour and water. Any suggestions?"

"I was looking for a beef stroganoff recipe and found this one on the TOH website. It is easy to make and fantastic!! I omit the mushrooms because I am the only one in my family who likes them. Love the convenience of making beef stroganoff in the slow cooker. In my opinion, it is better the next day; sauce thickens and it looks more like the traditional stroganoff. I serve this over noodles. I freeze the leftover stroganoff and noodles together. It freezes very well; no loss of taste. I highly recommend."

"In an effort to economize, we sometimes use carne asada sliced meat and use only one pound, replacing the second pound by using a can of drained and rinsed garbanzo beans. Coat in the flour like the meat. It keeps the bulk and reduces the red meat. Still SO very excellent. Entire family, including the picky one, likes this recipe."

"This was delicious and so easy!! I used stew meat, fresh mushrooms and mushroom broth. I ended up using more broth, so we just dumped the cooked noodles into the stroganoff - very yummy. This will be in our regular rotation!"

"We really enjoyed this meal. I omitted the mushrooms, because of someone with allergies to them. I had to thicken it a bit more with flour, but other than that I followed directions as written. I served it with fresh broccoli and a side of chopped apples with raisins, honey and sprinkled with cinnamon."

"Beef stroganoff is my favorite comfort food dinner. This is the only stroganoff recipe I use since trying it from a Taste of Home slow cooker magazine several years ago. The recipe is simple and makes the best stroganoff. I prepare the ingredients in my slow-cooker the evening before and store in the refrigerator overnight. I pop the the crock in the slow-cooker in the morning. My husband boils the noodles when he gets home and dinner is done when I walk in the door."
