Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff
January 14, 2014
"This is an easy dish to prepare; especially for a weeknight, or busy weekend dinner. When you come home, add the cream cheese, sour cream; and make your egg noodles. Those big, thick, wide egg noodles are a must for this dish, in my opinion. Growing up - my Mom always served peas with this. It is a simple, hearty dish. This is a dish I found a few years ago in a crock pot cookbook; and, I absolutely love how easy and good it is."

Steak ... The first thing I like to do, is freeze the steak, just until firm (30 minutes to 1 hr). This will make the steak very easy to cut in thin strips. Once the steak is sliced, let it rest on the counter to thaw out a bit. It won't take long.
Sauce ... In a small bowl, add the broth, dijon mustard, worcestershire, flour, garlic, dried dill and thyme, salt, pepper; and, mix until well combined.
Crock Pot ... Add the steak and onion to the crock pot; and, pour the sauce over the top. Mix to combine. Then, add the mushrooms on top; and lightly mix. I usually try to keep most of the mushrooms on the top; as they cook the quickest.
Cover and cook 7-8 hours on low heat. And please remember - the size and age of crock pot can really alter cooking times. I have a medium size oval crock pot, which is new; and it takes 7 hours. My friends older round pot, takes a good 8 hours.
Finish ... When the beef and mushrooms are done; add the softened cream cheese, sour cream, parsley, and mix to combine. Check for seasoning; and, reseason only if necessary. Cover, turn off the heat; and, let it set 10 minutes for everything to heat up.
Buttered Noodles ... Cook according to package directions; and, I like to add just a little pad of butter to keep them from sticking. The sauce is rich enough.
Serve ... Plate the noodles in a large serving bowl, and top with the stroganoff. Garnish with fresh dill - and ENJOY! As I said, Mom always served peas with this; but, add your favorite vegetable or salad.
