The BEST and EASIEST Beef Stroganoff EVER

I recently went on a recipe search online and came across this DELICIOUS MEAL!!! Never in my mind did I think it would taste better than I could have imagined! I LOVE making Sunday meals and because we don't get home from church until after lunchtime has passed, I like to make something that will be filling enough to make up for that lost mealtime. Crockpot meals really are my favorite ones to make on days like these. Once we got home, I finished the roux in the crockpot and had garlic bread, salad, and a veggie all prepared within the time it took to cook the noodles! Plus, this beef stroganoff got INCREDIBLE reviews from my hubby, and two boys! We all ate a TON and still had plenty leftover that also freezes very well for a later date! Enjoy! This recipe will go down as one of our favorites for sure!

Original recipe found HERE


2-3 pounds beef stew meat (I only had one pound and it was still plenty for my family)
1 tsp salt
couple dashes of pepper
1 onion diced
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 Tbl worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups beef broth or stock
1 Tbl ketchup
5-6 Tbl apple juice
1/3 cup flour
4 oz sliced mushrooms (optional)
1/2 cup sour cream


Place meat in crockpot and add salt, pepper, and onion. In a bowl, mix garlic salt, worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and ketchup. Pour over the meat and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours. (I cooked mine on LOW for about 5 hours and it was done in my crockpot). Make a simple roux in a separate bowl with the flour and apple juice. Wisk the roux into the crockpot and add the mushrooms. Turn on HIGH for about 15-30 minutes and then stir in the sour cream right before serving. Serve over pasta, rice, or baked potatoes. (I had egg noodles on hand and used those!)


  1. Oh, this one sounds like it would be great to use with venison! I'm always looking for ways to cover up that wild flavor and tenderize it as well. This sounds perfect (and easy too!) Thanks.
