Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Pin this Post on Pinterest Share on Facebook

I’m not sure what it is about some good ol’ comfort food that makes us feel so warm inside but it does. But most comfort food takes hours to prepare. But not this one. And it sure is nice, after a long day at work, to come home to something easy, filling, and comforting. This is one of my go-to recipes when it comes to easy comfort food. Dump it all into a slow cooker, crank that baby up and by the time you get home your house will be filled with the delicious aroma of a meal that sure doesn’t smell or taste like it took such little effort.

We’ve got a few give-a-ways coming up soon, so stay tuned to the blog. I mean what’s better than free groceries!?!?

Y’all enjoy!

  1. You have to love a recipe that cooks itself. Where would we be without slow cookers? This looks delicious.

    • Exactly! I sure do love mine. The crock got broken during washing one day and I went online to order a replacement one. After them being out of stock for two months, I just went out and bought another one. Can’t live without it!

  2. I came across your page this evening. After reading your “Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff” recipe I think it will be something I try very soon.
    Thanks for the recipes

    • Lyle – Welcome to Southern Bite! Do try the stroganoff, it’s delicious! And be sure to let me know how it turns out! Love to hear back from my readers!

  3. I just added this to my grocery list. I can’t wait to try it!

  4. It was great. My picky 19 month old daughter even loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this last night and LOVED it! I made mine with the whole wheat egg noodles-I didn’t care for those, but that had nothing to do with the Stroganoff-sometimes I like the whole wheat noodles and sometimes I don’t. Have you ever tried this with rice? I thoguht I might try that next time:)

    • That’s fantastic! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. I’m the same way with whole wheat pasta – some of it I like, most of it I don’t! Ha! Actually, we actually do it with rice sometimes. White rice and brown gravy is one of my favorite combinations, so I really enjoy it that way. Thanks for letting me know how it turned out!

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!!! ive used it several times!! family loves it

    Hey there!

    I just wondered over from Christy’s leftover ham post over on Southern Plate. The ham and cheese bread looked so good I just had to see what else y’all had cooking up over here!

    I’m wondering if I could make this with ground beef instead of stew meat? I’ve got all the ingredients to make this except for the stew meat, but I’ve got a whole freezer full of cooked ground beef!


    • Absolutely! If the ground beef is already cooked, then you can just do this stove top and save a LOT of time! Let me know how it turns out! πŸ™‚

  8. While I am a several-months subscriber to your Facebook feed (what is these days the most efficient route for me to keep up with websites worth tracking – yours among them!), and while I have over time added many of your recipes to the “must try” pile, this is the first Southern Bite recipe I have actually attempted, shame on me. Needless to say, between the hearty, creamy, flavorful results – not to mention the hands-off cooking! – this stroganoff made a great first impression and we’ll be inviting it back to our table again and again. Thank you for making the world a more delicious place! πŸ™‚

  9. I just found this website & so far am quite impressed. This beef stroganoff sounds perfectly quick & easy – just what I need as a very busy mother of 5! My very picky children will not eat anything with mushrooms in it. Is there something else I could substitute for the cream of mushroom soup?

    Stacey, I have made this several times since I found your blog, and each time it’s a hit! Thanks for this recipe. So easy, and tastes great!! It’s my go-to when guests come over. πŸ™‚

    Hi! I love me some beef stroganoff. πŸ™‚ Of course what I will share with you is not the quick way, but the taste is amazing. I did everything in my electric skillet (which makes it easy). I browned my stew meat and used:

    2lbs lean stew meat (of your choice)
    1 TBLSP minced garlic (or more depending on your taste)
    1 medium minced onion
    1/2 stalk celery, diced
    1 whole Portabella mushroom (cap), cut up (more if you like)
    1/4 C. red bell pepper, diced
    Enough coarse ground Kosher salt, to taste
    Enough mill ground black pepper to taste
    Dash of Worcestershire
    Dash of Frank’s red hot sauce
    1/2 stick of (real) butter
    2C sour cream
    1/2 C mayo
    1 PKG wide egg noodles (Boil while prepping the meat mixture & set aside)

    I usually do not measure anything, I taste as I go! lol
    Sautee the meat & spices in the butter until everything is cooked down a little, and the meat is browned. I added 2 cups of hot water, then I added the Worcestershire, & hot sauce. Mix yourself a little cornstarch to thicken everything. Once thickened, add your sour cream. I use 2 cups here. Next add about 1/2 C mayo. πŸ™‚ Let that mess cook for about 15 minutes on medium- low heat, then add pre-cooked egg noodles & simmer for another 10 minutes. Yeah this takes a little work, but oh my what a warm & wonderful flavor!! My husband said that HAVE to make it this way from now on .

  12. Beef Stroganoff is my husbands all-time favorite meal and my crock pot is my all-time favorite method of cooking here in this steamy, balmy paradise they call Florida! Your recipe looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it….all ingredients are on my shopping list and this will be Sunday supper! Question….you mentioned in an earlier post using already cooked ground beef….could I put raw ground beef in my crock pot for this recipe? I also saw a similar recipe that stirred the cooked noodles right into the crock pot after stirring in the sour cream….have you ever tried this? I’m also wondering if I could double the soup and broth and cook my noodles/rice right in the crock pot? I love to cook, but am always looking for shortcuts! Thanks! πŸ™‚

    • I wouldn’t use raw ground beef in the recipe if you’re going to put it in the slow cooker. It won’t give you an opportunity to drain away the grease like if you cooked it on the stove top. I’m just not sure about adding the noodles in raw. In theory, it seems it would work, but I’ve never tried it that way. If you do try it, please come back and let me know how it turns out.

  13. My family loves stroganoff and this receipe sounds wonderful – (love that slow cooker). I have a question for you. Right before I stir in the sour cream, the meat and gravy and just right for serving over noodles or rice; a nice thickness to it – however, whenever I stir in the sour cream it turns runny. What can I do to stop that from happening?

    • Unfortunately, that’s what happens with sour cream. The only suggestions I have are: 1) Cook it a while longer to thicken it back up. It will lose a little of the fresh cream flavor. 2) You can also add a little flour (a tablespoon or so) to the sauce as well. That will help it to thicken it up also.

  14. Do you know how much this serves? Thanks, getting ready to go to grocery store tomorrow so I can get the stuff to make this for supper tomorrow night can’t wait to try it looks delicious :):)

  15. This was great over rice. Thanks for the easy recipe.

  16. Easy and delicious! Definitely a recipe I will use often in the future. A big hit with my family!

  17. Excellent. Didn’t change a thing. Comfort food at is best Thank you.

  18. Stroganoff can be served over rice instead of noodles if desired. As well as also adding fresh or canned mushrooms.

  19. I can not wait to try it. Thanks for the recipe

  20. trying this tomorrow with elk steak!

    I usually do the quick ground beef type, but this sounds great. I think I’d have to add some mushrooms – either fresh or canned – since mushrooms are their own food group at our house! This would make a great Sunday dinner without a lot of work. Add some cooked green beans and oven baked biscuits and it’s a real meal.

    If someone is allergic to sour cream what can you use in its place?
