Beef Stroganoff Slow Cooker Recipe

Slow cooker beef stroganoff mainLast week saw the bright autumn days disappear for some very cool weather. This week’s menu plan reflects this change and sees a move to hearty warm meals. A particular favourite with my children which we had last week, is Beef Stroganoff. I also like it because I can quickly prepare all the ingredients, place it in the slow cooker, forget about it and it is ready by the time dinner hour has rocked around.

The recipe below can be used without a slow cooker though. Simply follow the instructions and instead of cooking in the slow cooker, cook in a moderate oven for a minimum of 1.5 hours.

Beef Stroganoff Slow Cooker Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams diced beef
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 large potatoes, cubed 1cm x 1cm
  • 3 large carrots, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 300 mls sour cream

Instructions:

  1. Toss the meat in flour. If the meat is in a plastic bag, I just add the flour to the bag and shake with some vigour.
    Heat oil in frying pan and brown the meat.
  2. Once browned, transfer meat to the slow cooker and then add all ingredients with the exception of the sour cream.
  3. Place lid on and cook on Auto/Low for 8-10 hours or High for 4-5 hours.
  4. In the last 30 minutes add sour cream and stir in thoroughly.
  5. Serve with rice or pasta.
