Simple Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff | Who Needs A Cape?

Traditional Beef Stroganoff is something that this lady is just not going to attempt, but Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff…sure, sign me up. Tender chunks of beef in a flavorful sauce, yum!

You can customize this recipe easily for your tastes, this version is tweaked to the preferences of my family. Experiment & change it up for your family.  Does your family enjoy  mushrooms? Then by all means use Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup instead of French Onion, maybe even throw in some fresh mushrooms towards the end of the cooking time.  A big time saver is that this recipe uses stew beef, which is great in my book because the cutting is already done for you.  Of course you can also use a larger piece of beef and cut into small pieces too.  I also opted to use only 4 oz of cream cheese at the end, if you prefer a creamier sauce, then by all means add more.  Serve over some steaming hot rice or egg noodles & dinner is served!

  1. I have made this a few different ways, and its awesome. As a side note it helps everything blend a little easier when I mix the soups, water, and Worcester together in a bowl and then pour it over the top. I add a large jar of mushrooms too!

  2. Can you believe I never had Stroganoff? This looks so easy. Need to try this!

  3. Do you brown the beef first?

  4. THANK YOU for posting this recipe! My fiancé and i loooove it! Our second batch is in the crock pot, and we doubled everything this time! I also added a package of pre-sliced mushrooms (normally we buy whole mushrooms, but these were marked down because they were starting to look brown. i have no issues with that!) and i put a splash of red wine in, just because.
    Last time, it was served over rice, and this time, it’s going to be on egg noodles.
    My house smells amazing, and I need to shop myself from trying to eat it when it’s not finished!

  5. Help I made this today, followed directions exactly I even put a whole block of cream cheese in but it still like soup!!!! How can I thicken this or this normal?

  6. This turned out amazing! It was definitely very liquidly, like soup, but I mixed it a bag of frozen peas and a pound of (cooked) spiral pasta, and it turned out to be a perfect consistency. I actually forgot to add the worchestershire sauce, but it still tasted good! Just needed some pepper to taste. But this recipe is a keeper, I’m definitely going to make it again!

  7. do the left overs freeze well? I’m making this today. 🙂

  8. Silly question, but when you say French onion or mushroom soup, do you mean regular soup or condensed soup?

  9. What measurement is considered a portion?
