Your family will love this easy to make recipe for Crock-Pot Beef Stroganoff (with gluten free options). Not only is this super simple to make, it also has no “cream of whatever” soup in it like you will find in many slow cooker recipes for beef stroganoff.
Crock-Pot Beef Stroganoff
It was the Sunday before Thanksgiving and I knew that this week I was going to be doing a whole lot of cooking as I hosted a big family dinner. Regardless of how much cooking and baking I was going to be doing later in the week the harsh reality is…the family still needs to eat the rest of the days of the week.
We all have our families go-to recipes like chicken or tacos or whatever. But none of those were sounding tasty to me. I was wanting something in the comfort food category. I decided to go with a from scratch recipe for beef stroganoff in the slow cooker.
Now normally I am not shy of using cream of whatever type soups, my own personal philosophy is that if it makes dinner tasty and easy I am perfectly OK with using it. However, a quick look in my pantry came up empty on canned soups so I decided to go “old school” and make this from scratch using flour (gluten free flour perfectly OK if you are on a gluten free diet) to thicken the beefy sour cream based gravy.
Beef stroganoff is normally served over cooked egg noodles and I wasn’t feeling adventurous to veer away from that. Again, if you are eating gluten free there are GF egg noodles that you can use.
Classically beef stroganoff has mushrooms in it, but alas, my family are not big fans of mushrooms so I decided to sub in some corn instead. If corn is not your thing, snap peas would be lovely too.
But if you want to go traditional and love mushrooms just use some sliced white button mushrooms and sautee them briefly in a teaspoon or two of butter on the stovetop. Easy peasy!
I love recipes that are easily adapted to the tastes and needs of YOUR family. And this is one of them. This recipe was very very easy to put together and the leftovers taste great warmed up the next day for lunch which my kids were very excited about!
