Slow cooker beef stroganoff

I’ve tried a few beef stroganoff a few times in my day, and this one is the best I’ve come across. Thank you DaringGourmet.com for this one.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds steak, cut into chunks or strips
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 10 oz button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup plus 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp dried thyme

When you’re home from work and the slow cooker has done its job, cook egg noodles according to package directions.

In the meantime, in a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup beef broth. Add broth to beef mixture in slow cooker. Stir to combine and continue cooking. Add cream cheese and sour cream, continuing to cook until adequately dissolved.

Serve over hot egg noodles, and garnish with parsley if desired.
