"This is my favorite beef stroganoff recipe. My family loves this dish as well. My husband loves the fresh mushrooms. My children and I do not like the mushrooms, but we pick around them. This dish is easy to prep, just takes some time in the morning. I use the beef broth instead of the wine when I make it. The meat is tender and the flavor is outstanding. This recipe is one of our favorite slow cooker recipes!"

"had this tonight for supper - my hubbie of 43 years thought it was wonderful! Was easy with few ingredients - a little prep then everything into the crock pot for 6 hours! Since retiring the end of 2014 - been trying new recipes! So far, they have all been great!"

"This was pretty good...I used beef broth and I tried to lighten it up by using less olive oil and low fat sour cream. It made decent sized servings...forgot to put the parsley on top!!"

"Using the crock pot was a great way to make beef stroganoff! I thought it was a little salty, but that was the stroganoff seasoning mix I used. I really liked the flavor the port wine added, I'm glad I used it instead of the broth."

"What burns me is when people rate a recipe that they have changed. Also my question to the woman who rated this recipe 1-Star...seriously ketchup and mustard in Stroganoff????!!!!!! Did you buy the right seasoning package????? This recipe was very good....I did use beef broth as opposed to Port simply because I didn't have any Port"

"Wonderful recipe and tastes great with mashed potatoes! I didn't care as much for it with the noodles. I would recommend adding a can of cream of mushroom to this prior to serving as it is a little on the runny side. Makes for a delicious gravy on mashed potatoes :)"

"This was really good. My husband was hungry for beef and noodles, so I didn't end up doing the stroganoff with the sour cream. I used the slow cooker beef stew mix and low sodium beef broth. I sauteed an onion with the mushrooms. I cooked Amish noodles in beef broth and served the beef mixture over noodles and mashed potatoes. True winter comfort food!"

"I made this for the first time tonight - I substituted the beef for venison cut in bite size chunks, and the 1/4 beef or wine for apple cider. My husband is a booger about trying new foods - but he tried this, and liked it so much he said "yeah, you could make it again." I'm very excited about the leftovers."

"My family loved this recipe. I did end up adding about 1/2 cup more of the beef broth after it had been cooking for about 3 hours. It looked a little dry to me and didn't think it could take another 3 hours of simmering without adding more liquid. It worked out perfectly. Last 30 minutes (while I was cooking the noodles) I stirred in the sour cream and turned off the slow cooker."

"I thought making Beef Stroganoff in my small dead-end galley kitchen the first week in August would be wonderful! (Added bonus++steak was on sale!) I had never used the packaged seasoning and will never use it again!! The taste was too 'flour-y' and 'pasty'! I tried Worcestershire sauce and gigantic amounts of pepper to try and mask the offensive 'flour-y' taste, and stopped short of using an entire bottles of ketchup and mustard! It was also done before 6 hours. My hunt is still on to find a slow cooker recipe for Beef Stroganoff so I can enjoy it in the Muggy Month of August!"
