Beef Stroganoff

When I usually have beef stroganoff it usually comes from the frozen section of the grocery store. I don't know why but I never thought to make it at home. Now, I don't know if I can ever go back to that frozen stuff again. This was super easy to make with barely any fuss in the kitchen and a very minimal clean up afterward. the meat comes out to be very tender and it holds all of the flavors of the sauce from cooking all day. The Worcestershire sauce and sour cream adds a slight tanginess to it but it is balanced out with the cream cheese. I found that if you cube the cream cheese before adding it to the slow cooker it will help it melt faster and there will be less of a chance of there being pockets of cream cheese in your sauce. If by chance you cannot find golden mushroom soup, cream of mushroom will work just as well.

  • 1 lb cubed beef stew meat
  • 1 (10 oz) can low sodium condensed golden mushroom soup
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz fat free cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp. dry white wine
  • 1 Tbsp. fat free sour cream
  • 1 lb whole wheat egg noodles
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. In a slow cooker mix meat, soup, water, onion, garlic, mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce and wine. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  2. Cook noodles according to package, drain and set aside.
  3. Stir in cream cheese and sour cream just before serving. Salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the meat sauce over the noodles and serve hot.

That is one of my husbands favorite dishes, but since I don't like mushrooms, I hardly make it - love that you did it in the crockpot! :D

This looks delicious! I love the idea of making it in a slow cooker - I bet the house smells great while this is cooking!

Kristin, we used to have stroganoff all the time when I was a kid, and I want some! Every time I see someone post a great recipe for stroganoff (I love the word), I think "I'm going to make that tonight," but I never manage to do so! But I mean it this time! How delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!

I just love beef stroganoff! I use a modified Betty Crocker recipe and it leaves out the soup, so it's nice and light like yours.
Thanks for visiting my blog, too!

The thing about learning how to make something at home is that you really never can go back to storebought! This looks great.

Beef Stroganoff isn't something I'd think of making -- I always associate it with 70s cooking my mom did. But seeing your version, it looks terrific! Maybe I'll have to revisit those associations!

Isn't it funny how we used to eat frozen food and it was perfectly acceptable but now that we actually cook, we realize how better and not so difficult to make GOOD meals like this! I love stroganoff but I don't like mushrooms, so those would have to go.

My taste buds have totally changed since I've been cooking so much - food I once loved tastes gross now. I always wanted to make stroganoff - looks so creamy and comforting!
