Reviews for Slow Cooker Ground Beef Stroganoff
"Great recipe! As other reviewers commented, I cooked mine on the stovetop, too. I didn't have beef consomm?, so used a can of French onion soup that I had on hand. The mixture got really thick, so I added about a half cup of water to thin it out. Great way to use up some browned ground beef and mushrooms I had on hand quick and easy, too!"
"This recipe is awesome....so easy and delicious! My husband said, "Do NOT lose this recipe!""
"Actually, this is a good recipe. I gave it four stars because the slow cooker is not necessary. Most of the ingredients are pre-cooked, so just leave everything in the pan and finish it there. Use less consomme at first until you see how thick it is, then add more as necessary. Oh--if you don't want to open a can of tomato paste, use catsup instead."
"This came together easy but the flavors weren't for us"
"My family enjoyed this take on Stroganoff. I did half the recipe and cooked it on the stove top to save time, but no other changes were made, the ingredients all stayed the same. Using half the consumme was fine for me, because I just used the other half for rice pilaf the next night for dinner."
