Expert Tips

  • Sprinkle with finely chopped fresh parsley for a bright finish.
  • Beef sirloin steak is more tender than other cuts of beef that are used for stews. Cooking the beef in butter until browned, results in the best flavor. Then the very low heat of the slow cooker keeps the meat tender.
  • With the slow braising of the stroganoff, the cream cheese creates an instantly smooth sauce, that combined with the sour cream stays thick and rich.
  • It’s easier to cut the beef into clean slices when it’s partially frozen for about 1 hour.
  • To save precious minutes in the morning, use minced garlic in a jar. You could also cut up the beef the night before and refrigerate.

More About This Recipe

  • You may think you don’t know anything about the 19th century Russian aristocrat Pavel Alexandrovich Stroganov, but you’ve most likely enjoyed his eponymous dish. While there are conflicting stories about the dish’s origin story, many food historians favor the version in which Stroganov’s cook, André Dupont, named his special beef fricassee for his employer. Thousands of chafing dishes later, the dish is still popular all over the world. In our modern take on the classic, you need just 15 minutes of prep and a long, slow turn in the slow cooker to turn out a crock pot beef stroganoff that probably would please not just Stroganov, but his creative cook, as well. This slow cooker beef stroganoff is just one of the many recipes you‘ll find in the collection of Betty's best stroganoff recipes.
