Slow-Cooker Beef Stroganoff

No more standing and stirring at the stove. This creamy Stroganoff preps in a skillet, then cooks all day while you’re away. —Sarah C. Vasques, Milford, New Hampshire

    This was a good recipe but a little lacking in flavor. I needed to add salt and pepper. Also I couldn’t find the stroganoff spices for crock pots so I did as a previous reviewer did and added Lipton’s Beefy Onion soup mix and 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce. But it still needed more os something.

    Hey Pete ... you downvote a recipe you haven’t even made because you don’t like one ingredient? C’mon Man! That’s lame. So in order to balance it out I’ll give it 5 stars BEFORE I even make it.

    Packaged stroganoff seasoning? Way to much sodium and loaded with chemicals. I’ll pass thank you.

    I found this recipe but didn't have all the ingredients it called for so I had to improvise. I only had ground chuck so I decided to try it to see how it worked. I didn't have the stroganoff seasoning but i did have a packet of Lipton Beefy Onion seasoning. I used beef broth instead of wine and added about a tablespoon of worcestershire sauce. I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used canned mushrooms and caramelized the onions in the olive oil. Instead of sour cream I used a can of mushroom soup. I did have the ground mustard and the remainder of the ingredients. I didn't have time to cook it in a slow cooker so I put all of this in a skillet on my stove top and cooked it. It turned out really good. I want to try the original recipe next time I make stroganoff. I guess the reason I am writing this review is my point is that this recipe, even though I didn't have the right ingredients, did give me a recipe to go by to use what I did have on hand and it turned out really good. When I can get to a store (I live in a very remote area) to get the ingredients I want to make this recipe again. I don't know how to rate this since I didn't actually make this recipe. I would like to give it five stars but I would be rating my own changes so I guess after I make the original recipe I will write another review and rate it.

    This was excellent. I had lost my favorite Beef Stroganoff recipe a few years ago and I've been looking for a replacement ever since. I finally found it! My two kids and husband loved it too. Winner!
