Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

I am in a stew kind of mood. Stewing about what to cook!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

I love my slow cooker and beef turns out perfect every time when I use it. This recipe is more work than a usual slow cooker DUMP but it is worth it because I make enough to feed a small army of very hungry people.

I freeze half of this for a future meal. Note that you should not add the sour cream and then freeze it. It turns out more tasty if you add sour cream after you reheat it.

You must sauté the beef before adding it to the slow cooker because otherwise it will end up gummy. Also, do not try to replace the white wine. I usually do not use wine in my recipes, but in this one it is an essential flavoring agent. It tastes so rich with it. I use the pre-sliced white mushrooms because they make life easy.

This looks good Lisa... I don't have a rump roast but I do have beef cubes which I will use.. I plan on making this tomorrow.

YUM! I love this. I can't wait to try it. I was going to use beef cubes as well.

Can you cook on low instead of high? If so for how long?

Thank you

I don't have a crockpot but I do slow cooking in a dutch oven pot with similar results. I use the same ingredients, just sear meat first, [brisket if its available], cover with tons of fresh onions [raw], mushrooms, w.sauce, seasonings. After 3hrs at 250d I take beef out, cool briefly, slice it thinly, and thicken gravy sometimes at this point, plop meat back in, as close to orig shape as poss., and cook 1 more hour. Beef stew is similar, just no sear needed, dump in potatoes, carrots and onion wedges, and I like a can of diced or stewed tomatoes added to water, and when finished in 3hrs add frozen peas. This the perfect time of year for stewing but where is the cold and snow in the northeast this December?
