Crockpot Beef Stroganoff


This is one of my favorite dishes for Sundays. I love the way it makes the house smell like I've been in the kitchen all day.



Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

2 lbs. Stew Meat (sliced into bite-size pieces)
1 can or fresh Mushrooms (sliced as desired), optional
1 pkg onion soup mix
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 (12oz.) can Ginger Ale
1-2 Tbl corn starch
1 (8 oz.) Sour Cream, *room temperature
1 pkg *Egg Noodles

Directions
Place frozen stew meat in crockpot
Add mushrooms, onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup, and ginger ale
Cook on high for approx. 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours, stirring occasionally
For the last hour mix 1-2 Tbl of corn starch with a small amount of water and add to thicken
Add sour cream to taste
Cook egg noodles according to package directions
Serve stroganoff over *noodles and enjoy!

* If you stir the sour cream in cold, it will most likely curdle.
* You could also use a thick piece of toast, biscuits, or mashed potatoes instead of noodles

what is the reason for using the ginger ale and is there something else that can be used instead? For example, plain water and the seasoning of ginger itself?

Amanda Price said...

When I have not had the ginger ale, I have used water with ground ginger and I did not notice a difference.

What is the serving amount? 5 people? 10 people?

Amanda Price said...

I would say you could serve about 6 to 8 people.

you can use a can of sprite or coke it will also tenderize the meat for you and it will melt in your mouth.

You can always use 1/2 can of red wine plus 1/2 can of water. Much better taste.

Directions refer to "frozen" stew meat. Is that correct?

Amanda Price said...

Yes, I usually cook it frozen. But you can cook it thawed as well. You just wont need to cook it as long.

Is there something else that can be used in place of cream of mushroom soup? My guy hates mushrooms.

@Lynn Roberts: My guess is that you could use cream of chicken soup, as I have, and not alter the taste.

Is there a substitution for the onion soup mix...some other flavor of soup...we don't eat onion here. Thanks.

I notice green "stuff" all over the meat in Picture. Is that parsley or green onions. Not on list in recipe Loretta

Amanda Price said...

Yes, it's just parsley for garnish.

You can use black coffee instead of the ginger ale, this gives it (or any beer dish) a deep rich color and tenderizes the meat and no it wil not taste like coffee.
