Beef Stroganoff in the Slow Cooker

This is a total Comfort Food for me. I like the Hamburger Mushroom Soup version well enough, but this is so much better & it has leftovers.   I don't use exact recipes so the amounts of these ingredients are usually dependent on what I have around.  If you have dried mushrooms to use with this it will kick up the flavour, but they are not required. Whatever Mushrooms are on sale work just fine. You can even add a can of Mushroom soup and it will be great.  Don't you love Flexible cooking?
(Scroll to the bottom for a in a hurry version)


1 beef roast (7 bone or whatever is on Sale one with some fat will have better flavour)
Olive Oil
Garlic  cloves, Chopped  ( Optional Roasted garlic cloves coarsely chopped)
1 large Onion Chopped
1 oz Dried Mushrooms (any kind you like, Costco has a great Mix of dried mushrooms)
2 cans beef  or Veggie Broth ( water works too)
a bit of Red Wine or red wine vineger (optional)
8 oz fresh mushrooms chopped/quartered
1 16 oz sour cream
1 bag wide egg noodles

(spices  that you like.  I like Salt, Pepper, GARLIC, sage, oregano & or Rosemary)

Season the roast liberally with salt & pepper
Heat Oil in a Dutch oven & Brown roast on all Sides.
remove Roast to a plate & add Onion & Garlic to the pan cook on Med for a few minutes & then add Fresh Mushrooms ( & roasted Garlic).  Cook for a few Minutes & add red wine  or vinegar to the pan scraping the bottom to get all the good mixed in with your veggies. 

Put the Roast back in the pan.

Add The broth & dried Mushrooms (& any herbs/spices that make you happy) cover the pan , bring to a boil & then put in the oven at 250 degrees for 7-8 hours.

Remove the Roast & let cool for a bit.

Add a bit of Water to the Dutch oven (or Crock pot) & bring to a boil.  When the broth is boiling add a bag of Egg Noodles and let them cook till done (soaking up the broth).

While the noodles cook shred the roast .  When the noodles are done mix the shredded beef back into the pot and add sour cream right before you eat.

If you are using a crock pot and in a Hurry you can season the meat to taste and dump everything except for the noodles &sour Cream in the Crock pot and leave it on Low till you get home from work. Then follow the rest of the instructions for after the roast is done.
