This is an easy version of stroganoff that uses thinly sliced beef which cooks up quickly in your slow cooker, but yields tender meat in a rich gravy. I use gluten-free flour in my recipe, however you can use regular flour if you are not gluten-free. Additionally, you can skip the sour cream to make it dairy-free and it’s every bit as good.
Traditionally, this is served with egg noodles, which is how I prefer it, but we had it over rice to accommodate my husband’s digestive issues. And because I don’t feel like a meal is proper without a veggie, I added peas to my bowl. I also like to eat this with broccoli.
One other cooking note: I have a Ninja slow cooker which has a “stove top setting,” allowing me to brown the meat in my crockpot. If your slow cooker doesn’t have this setting, simply brown the beef on your stovetop, then transfer to the crockpot.
Crockpot Beef Stroganoff
1 lb thinly sliced sirloin, cut into strips
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
16 ounces beef broth
Place the thinly slice beef strips into a large mixing bowl and season with the onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, then sprinkle with flour. Using a large spoon, toss the meat until it is evenly coated. Heat the olive oil in a large pan (or in your slow cooker if it has a stovetop setting) and brown the meat, stirring to coat with olive oil. Once the meat has started to brown, add the Worcestershire sauce and ketchup, stirring to coat. Remove from the heat and transfer to the crockpot (or switch the crockpot setting from stovetop to slow cook). Add the mushrooms and beef broth and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until the meat is tender and the sauce is thickened.
To serve, place egg noodles or rice in individual bowls, and top with the stroganoff. Swirl a generous dollop of sour cream into each serving of stroganoff. Goes great with peas or broccoli on the side.
