Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff with a Celery Seed Vinaigrette Salad 3.88/5 (8 votes)

The perfect way to end a busy day is when you walk in the kitchen to an almost made meal! So many of us grew up eating beef stroganoff; but it was gloppy, gelatinous, and had tough meat. This is so much better and so much easier! Tender meat, and a light, incredibly flavorful sauce over egg noodles. Cut a few calories and fat by using low fat sour cream. And don't skip the salad - this is one of my all-time favorite vinaigrettes. Enjoy this meal!

NOTES

KID NOTE: The kids loved stroganoff. Because they are not big salad eaters, they were given a side of carrot sticks.

VEGETARIAN TIP: Substitute an assortment of additional mushrooms.

GLUTEN MODIFICATIONS: Use gluten free wide noodles and make sure your Worcestershire sauce is gluten free.

    We though that it needed to be more creamy, so we will add more sour cream next time we make it. And, the dressing was WAY TOO sweat. We will do a different dressing altogether. Loved the ease of prep.

    So incredibly delicious! I made the vegetarian option using your recipe for homemade cream of mushroom. It will definitely be a staple in our house!
