Love beef stroganoff? You’ll love my Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff! It’s made in the crockpot, has no “cream of x” soup, & uses my blend of spices!
Before we talk about this super tasty Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Recipe, let me take a second to mention that Valentine’s Day is TWO days away. Just in case you forgot. If you’re still looking for recipe ideas – seriously, I still have no idea what I want to make – be sure to check out my Valentine’s Day Recipe Roundup from last Friday. Everything from easy appetizers –> romantic dinners –> ooey, gooey desserts –> fruity drinks. ♡
But moving along.
This Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Recipe is easy, ultra creamy (without the help of “cream of anything” soups), and is the perfect, hearty, yet not incredibly unhealthy meal for these cold winter nights.
This recipe reminds me so much of my childhood, as my mom used to make this when I was growing up. As I’ve mentioned before, I was a super picky eater as a kid.
First, I hated beef stroganoff.
Then, I would eat the beef, but wouldn’t go near the noodles.
Then, I would go nuts over the noodles, but wouldn’t touch the beef with a ten foot pole. Honestly, I’m still not a huge red meat eater, but I seriously love this stuff.
Eventually, I learned to like everything together. 😉
Now this Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is a spin off on my mom’s recipe. Her recipe needed to be baked in the oven for about three hours anyway, so I just decided to throw everything into my beloved crockpot instead!
Worked like a charm.
I took the basic idea of my mom’s recipe, but swapped cream of mushroom soup for broth, milk, and fresh mushrooms, (& flour to thicken it up) and instead of using a package of onion soup, I made up my own, super easy spice mix!
Other than that, I kept everything the same. I used 2 pounds of round steak, a little white wine, egg noodles, a touch of butter, and of course, sour cream <– my favorite part.
Here’s what you need to do.
Step 1: Grease your crockpot with cooking spray.
Step 2: Whisk together broth, milk (I used skim), white wine (don’t skip it), and spices – yummy things like onion powder, parsley, celery seed, and paprika.
Step 3: Throw in butter, cubed steak, mushrooms, and minced onion.
Step 4: Set and forget. Let it cook low and slow for about 8 hours while you’re a work!
Step 5: When you get home whisk in flour, sour cream, and cook uncovered for an additional 30 minutes. It gets all thick and delicious.
Step 6: While Step 5 is happening 👆 , boil those crazy delicious egg noodles we all ♡.
Step 7: Serve, d.e.v.o.ur., and feel all cozy inside.
As you can see this Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is so easy. It’s also so cozy and warm and perfect for eating during these freezing cold months.
If you’ve ever been a fan of the classic beef stroganoff, you’ll love my Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff even more. Why? Because it’s made in the crockpot, has no mystery cream of anything soup, and uses my concoction of spices instead of a package!
Cozy deliciousness for the win!
