Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

This recipe is one of my top 5 favorite crock pot recipes.  I happen to be a big fan of Stroganoff.  The combination of pasta with mushrooms in any form is bound to be a personal favorite for me.  My kids devoured this dish and the stew meat made it a hearty, filling meal that my husband thoroughly enjoyed. 

1-2 lbs. Stew Meat
1 tsp. Salt
Pepper, to taste
1 Onion, sliced
Garlic Powder, to taste
1 T. Worcestershire Sace
1 T. Ketchup
1 1/2 C. Beef Broth
1/3 C. Flour
1/2 C. Water
8 oz. Fresh Sliced Mushrooms
1/2 C. Sour Cream

Put stew meat into your crock pot and sprinkle chopped onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder over top.  In a small bowl combine the broth, ketchup and worcestershire sauce.  Pour over top of meat.  Cook on high 4-5 hours. (You can also cook it on low heat for 7-8 hours but I feel like the meat becomes overly tender and falls apart when small pieces of meat are cooked for that long.)  After about 4 hours, whisk together the flour and water and pour into the crock pot.  Stir into the meat mixture to thicken juices.  Add mushrooms, cover and cook 30 minutes longer.  Stir in sour cream just before serving and ladle over top of cooked rice or pasta.

I make it with beefalo that i buy from a farmer in lincoln arkansas. It has less than half the fat and cholesterol as beef. Taists better also.

We made this tonight and it was reasonably good. Due to its crockpotiness, we added some extra spices like thyme, more pepper and a lil bit of red wine to perk it up. Before adding the sour cream, I also put it in a pyrex pan under the broiler for 3-4 minutes. It caramelizes the onions a bit...Good basic recipe.
