crockpot beef stroganoff
The hubs is a huge lover of beef stroganoff. I'd never made it before, and when I saw a super simple crockpot recipe, I figured I ought to give it a try.
And. it. was. so. good. Like, we made it twice in one week good. This is serious throwback comfort food. I like that kinda thing.
Crockpot Beef Stroganoff (adapted from Mix and Match Mama)
salt and pepper
1-1.5 lbs. beef stew meat
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cups beef broth
8 oz. neufchatel cheese, softened
2-3 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
6 oz. egg noodles
chopped herbs (I used Italian parsley) to garnish
Heat a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season stew meat with salt and pepper. Brown meat on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to crockpot. Add onion, garlic, soup, broth, cheese, Worchestershire, and rosemary. Stir until everything is combined. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
Take cover off crockpot and stir in egg noodles. Cook uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender. Check for seasoning.
To serve, ladle into bowls and top with fresh herbs. Hearty, warming, delicious. Enjoy!
