Crock Pot Real Beef Stroganoff (with NO cream soup!)

Beef Stroganoff in the crock pot couldn't be simpler! And best yet, you do not need any cream of mushroom soup either!

I have two boys who will not eat anything made from a cream soup. Won't touch it. This stroganoff  is so delicious, you'll wonder why anyone ever used a can of soup in the first place!

I love the set and go aspect of this crockpot version.  Just a few steps when you get home to finish it up and dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes!

I used a package of beef stir fry strips that were in my freezer and needing to be used up, I also love stew meat cubes! You can also use frozen meatballs (so delish!) or even a pound of cooked ground meat.

Jan's Tip: to make this a quick skillet meal instead of a crockpot meal grab the meatballs or ground meat and make the recipe in the skillet for a ready to eat meal in about 20 minutes!

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Ingredients:

Meat : Choose one of the following:
1 lb:
cubed beef stew meat
beef stir fry strips
Meatballs (20-24)
Ground Beef  pre-cooked/crumbled

Sauce:
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 cup beef broth  (either from a can, bouillon cubes, or homemade)
1 Tablespoon tomato paste or ketchup
1-2 Tablespoon flour
1/2 cup sour cream

Directions:
In crock pot place meat in bottom.
Layer mushrooms on top.
In small bowl: Mix together beef broth and ketchup. Pour mixture over meat/mushrooms
cook in slow cooker:  on low 5-6 hours or high 3-4

Just before serving: 
Start cooking your pasta or rice for the stroganoff (I used whole wheat egg noodles)
remove lid from the slow cooker.
Whisk in the flour to the crock pot. This should instantly turn the liquid to a yummy gravy!
Gently stir in the sour cream.


Serve over rice or noodles.
