Friday: Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff with steamed carrots

I love slow cooker meals, my house smells so yummy all day! Stroganoff is one of my absolute favorite meals so I am constantly trying new recipes. I hope you enjoy this one!

Here is what you need:
2 tbsp. flour, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 3/4 lb. boneless beef round steak (I used 3/4 lb and it was plenty for 6 people or mix it up and just use ground beef), 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup water, 1 envelope dried onion soup mix, 1/2 cup sour cream, 9 oz jar (can or fresh) mushrooms (we opted to not put these in our stroganoff so they are not pictured).

Step 1: combine 2 tbsp. flour, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 tsp. pepper in slow cooker

Step 2: Cut meat into 1 1/2 x 1 inch strips (or cubed like mine) and toss in flour mixture until well coated.
Step 3: Add mushroom soup, 1/2 cup water, and soup mix. Stir until well blended.

Step 4: Cover, cook on High 3-3/12 hours or Low 6-7 hours

Step 5: Stir in mushrooms, 1/2 cup sour cream.

Let the sour cream cook in the stroganoff about 10-15 minutes or until heated through

Step 6: Cook your noodles. I chose to eat our stroganoff over noodles, but it would be just as good over rice, bread or potatoes.

Step 7: Don't forget your veggie for a side! We chose to cook some carrots

Step 8: Serve and enjoy! Yummy!

Cost of meal: $7.50 (for steak), $5.50 (for ground beef)
Cost per person for a family of 6- $1.25 (for steak) .91 cents (for ground beef)

I hope you enjoyed this meal. I would love to hear your comments on it!

What size can of mushroom soup did you use? I'm making this tomorrow and I'm so excited to taste it!

Also, if I use fresh mushrooms, should I add them at the beginning or with the sour cream?
