I believe the first time I tried Beef Stroganoff as a kid was from one of those hamburger helper boxes. haha. I actually loved it! But I guess I didn’t know any better. It was what Mom could afford and I am grateful for that. 

Now that my love of cooking is bigger than ever before I have tried a lot of different homemade versions of beef stroganoff. This one here –> Easy Beef Stroganoff is the recipe I make my family all the time. I always serve it with corn and my kiddos eat it right up! 🙂

Although that recipe is our favorite, I thought it was high time to find a slow cooker version. I found a few of them and tweaked them into my own and it turned out totally amazing!

Let me say one thing before I keep on going. I do NOT add mushrooms to my beef stroganoff. If my husband or kids saw a mushroom in anything I cooked they would run a mile away. haha. No, seriously they would. 😉

I know that classic beef stroganoff has mushrooms. If you would like them you can add about 8 ounces to one pound of mushrooms in with the beef at the beginning. Easy peasy!

If you are not a fan of mushrooms, like the Lofthouse family, then leave them out and you will still love this delicious slow cooker recipe! It could not be any easier.

    1. Beef stew meat is cuts of beef chuck or beef round meat. They cut them in 1-inch pieces and package them that way at the meat section of the grocery store. 🙂

      1. Hi, This Looks Great! Making my list for later in the week…. Will Light Sour Cream work or does it make it too watery?

    1. I think you may need to add an extra hour or so to the cooking time. If you are doubling this though, 4 pounds is a lot of meat so make sure you are using a very large crock pot!

    This recipe was so good! I’ve tried several sTroganoff recipes To find one that tastes like my Mom’s did & this was the closest i’ve come to getting that wonder flavor I remembered. Thank you! I followed your Ingredients to a tee but I did brown the meat & mushroomS before adding them to the crockpot. Also, I served over mashed potatoes.
