Slow Cooker Beefy Stroganoff

Slow Cooker Beefy Stroganoff adapted from Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally
1lb of lean hamburger
Tub of sour cream
1 clove of garlic
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
2 cans of water
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
1 bag of noodles (I like bow tie)
2 cups of beef broth
1 packet of onion soup mix (I've used an onion and some garlic salt as a substitute before)

Directions:  Brown hamburger with garlic, mushrooms, and salt & pepper.  Add drained hamburger mixture to the crockpot with the rest of the ingredients, except for sour cream and noodles.

Stir pot really well. Cook on low 4-6 hours.  Right before serving, boil noodles and then add to crockpot.

Here's what I started with:  (I forgot to show the pack of onion soup mix)

Here's how I did it:

#1 I browned the ground beef, garlic and 1/2 container of sliced mushrooms.

#2 While the meat was cooking, I put the other ingredients (minus the noodles and sour cream) into the crockpot and stirred it really well.

#3 Once browned, the meat was drained and added to the crockpot.  This cooked for about 5 hours.

#4 Once we were ready to eat, I cooked some egg noodles according to the package directions.  While they were cooking, I emtpied 1 container of light sour cream into the crockpot and stirred it up.

#5 Once the egg noodles were cooked, I added them to the crockpot and stirred it altogether.

The Finished Product:


This dish was really good and so simple to make, another pantry meal!  I think it will also make great leftovers. 

My one, and only, complaint is that it was a little runny.  I almost added some corn starch to it to thicken it up a bit but I didn't know if it would have changed the taste or not.  I think that next time I will only use 1 can of beef broth.  I don't know if the fact that I used light sour cream or egg noodles instead of regular pasta noodles would have made a difference; either way, we all loved it!

Hope you enjoy!

My mom made it last night and said the same thing. :( I trimmed the liquids down on my recipe in case anyone attempts to make it again.
