Easy Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff is one of those recipes that is so good I wonder why we don’t have it more often. It’s an easy slow cooker recipe that simmers all day and smells heavenly.

I usually stir it together with noodles before serving but you can serve it over noodles or rice, your preference. The meat is tender and the sauce has a rich flavor from the long simmering.  Serve with a salad and crusty bread and your family will be anxious to gather at the dinner table!

Easy Beef Stroganoff

(Note: I often multiply the recipe by half again as much, so 1 ½ lbs. stew meat, etc.)

1 lb. beef stew meat (I usually cut it up in bite-size pieces)

½ cup flour

1/8 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. salt

½ tsp. dry mustard

Stir together dry ingredients in slow cooker.  Add meat pieces and toss to coat.

Stir together:

2 cups hot water

1 ½ TBS au jus seasoning OR beef bouillon powder OR beef base

Pour over coated meat in crock pot and stir lightly to combine.

Cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Just before serving, stir these ingredients into crock pot:

1 ½ cups sour cream

¼ cup flour

3 TBS parsley (I usually use dried)

Serve over noodles or rice (or mix with the noodles like we do).

I’d love to hear what you think! Please leave a comment…

  1. I am really excited about an easy beef stroganoff recipe that does not involve cream of mushroom (or cream of anything, for that matter) soup. I am planning on putting beef stew meat on the grocery list to make it very soon.

    1. I make my own white sauce for casseroles and such–it’s easy, with butter and flour and broth. I know what you mean–I hardly ever make something that needs cream of something, lol

  2. Can you make this recipe without a crockpot?
    I’m wondering if it could be baked at a lower temperature in the oven for a couple of hours.

    1. It probably could be cooked in the oven–the only thing is that someone said that a lot of times the meat is chewy in Stroganoff, so you’d probably want to cook it at a very low temp for a long time.

  3. I had to laugh about what you wrote regarding Gracie in today’s email newsletter (about her being the 9th child, born on the 9th and weighing 9 pounds). It reminds me of my 4th child, who was born on 4-4-04. I never have any problem remembering his birthday. LOL

  4. It was super yum! I asked how it was but got silence…they were all too busy eating! Thanks! It’s a keeper!

  5. Made this for our Tue. evening group and they all (13) loved it! They all wanted left overs:) Thanks for sharing these great recipes, and all the great T-Tapp tips!
