Whadda We Eatin' Wednesday #4 - Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff!!!

Hi everyone!!!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week is going great!   For me, it's going by fast!

I can't believe that one month ago I started this blog!  It's already received over 5000 views.  Thank you so much all who have come to visit and read this blog!  I can't tell you how grateful I am that you have come by!    I'm so thankful to have encountered so many wonderful people through this blog!  =D

Well, It's already time for another "Whadda We Eatin' Wednesday"

Today I'm going to share a WONDERFUL Beef Stroganoff recipe in the crock pot.  If you like Beef Stroganoff, you will love this simple recipe!!!

I had never made beef stroganoff before, and since I'm always trying to make new things for our "Sunday Family Dinners"  I wanted to try it out. 

I found this recipe on Pinterest....pretty much my go-to place for ideas (along with some of the blogs I'm following).  It looked easy and yummy, so I thought it would be worth trying!

Here are the ingredients I used (pretty similar to the original recipe I found here)




*2 pounds cubed stew meat
*2 cans Campbell's Condensed "Golden Mushroom" Soup
*1 largish onion - diced
*4 TBSP of Worcestershire Sauce
*1/2  cup water  (this makes a thicker sauce...if you like a thinner sauce, you'll need to add more water)
*8 oz of cream cheese
*Garlic Powder, Onion Powder and Paprika to taste.  I probably put in about 1 tbsp each.
*Pasta of your choice  (traditionally, egg noodles are used...I'm low carbing so I used Dreamfields' Linguine noodles and they were pefect!)



I started by doing a quick sautee of the onion in butter and just searing the stew meat a bit...not too much, just a bit.   This is just an optional step I did that wasn't in the original recipe.   



Then I put the cans of soup, the 1/2 cup of water, worstershire  and the onions and meat into the crock pot...stirred it around and put it on low for 7 hours.  

At the 7 hour mark, I cut in the cream cheese and turned the crock pot on high...stirred and cooked for another 1/2 hour.   This makes a nice thick sauce to put over the pasta!


The kids didn't love it, but my husband and I were going crazy for it!   



And the leftovers are even better the next day!  So flavorful and delicious!!!  

The sauce is fairly thick so you can either add water or don't fully drain your pasta....leaving just a little water to thin the sauce as you stir it in.

If you try this, I'd love to hear what you think!  It couldn't be easier to make, that's for sure, and we grown-ups thought it was awesome!!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

    1. Thanks Jacqueline! It was so yummy! I've had beef stroganoff before, but not very often, so when I saw this recipe, I thought I'd try it out. This makes a WONDERFUL comfort food. It's also a good low-carb food with Dreamfields Pasta (a low carb pasta that tastes just like regular pasta...it's uncanny!)
