Who doesn’t like crock pot recipes? You throw everything in at breakfast, go throughout your day and when you are hungry for dinner it is waiting for you! When things get busy around my house I always think I should ONLY cook crock pot meals. No matter what happens at least part of the dinner is made. If we don’t have time to make the sides at least there is something instead of a drive through window! Still, it seems easier to push through to completion when the main part is done.
What I like best about this crock pot Beef Stroganoff recipe is the tangy sour cream and creamy cream cheese that is included at the very end. These two ingredients are vital! I have forgotten to include these ingredients at one time or another and it is no where near as good!
Slow Cooker recipes are perfect for the young. If you do not want to worry about heat this is the way to start. Little Chef D measured out the ingredients minus the sour cream and cream cheese.
Turn it on low after breakfast. When the house smells good you know it is dinner time. That means it is time to finally add in the sour cream and cream cheese. Do NOT forget! No matter how hungry the kids are add the two ingredients in. Let it melt and incorporate. The color of the sauce will lighten significantly.
We love to serve it over rice but you can also serve it over hot egg noodles. I must not wait long enough after adding in the two key ingredients because we always see little white bits of cream cheese.Not to worry though, it tastes amazing. My Little Chefs drool over this recipe. I NEVER get complaints when this is made. In fact this is one of those super quick fast eating nights! Little Chef D did a great job making this recipe. Very simple, even for the smallest ones.
