We are huge fans of beef stroganoff around here. We like it traditionally prepared, and we like it in the slow cooker. We’re happy to eat it with stew meat or with ground beef. We like it with mushrooms or without. By that I mean that I like it with mushrooms, and my husband likes it without.
I was thrilled that this recipe was chosen last week. My mom was in town, and her presence meant there were two mushroom lovers in the house and my mushroom hating husband was outnumbered.
I have spent the past 14 years modifying my favorite recipes to be mushroom free, all in the name of love and a peaceful household, but on Thursday, I giddily sliced them into my slow cooker, and now I’m not sure I can make beef stroganoff without mushrooms. Don’t worry about the future of my marriage. The mushrooms were cut in half and were super easy to pick out. More for me!
If you aren’t a fan of mushrooms, Crock Pot Creamy Beef Stroganoff is good without them, too. It has an incredible flavor, and it will make your house smell divine!
I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Creamy Beef Stroganoff.
Crock Pot Creamy Beef Stroganoff
- 2 lb. beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 10 oz. fresh mushrooms, halved
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 tsp. paprika
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 Tbsp. flour
- 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
- 1 pkg. (16 oz.) egg noodles, uncooked
- 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
- Put meat, mushrooms, onions and garlic in slow cooker.
- Add broth, paprika, salt, and pepper.
- Cover and cook on LOW 7 to 8 hours (or on HIGH 5 hours).
- Combine sour cream, flour and mustard.
- Stir into ingredients in slow cooker until well blended.
- Stir in uncooked noodles and cook 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until noodles are to desired tenderness.
- Sprinkle with parsley when serving.
This stroganoff was very delicious. I love mushrooms, so that was a double yum!! Cooking the egg noodles right in the crockpot the last hour absorbed most all of the liquid perfectly. I did add an extra dollop of sour cream. The leftovers were good even the next night, and I would definitely make this again.
Our family thought this take on stroganoff was delicious. Our two year old loved the big chunks of beef and we all loved the flavors. I hate mushroom but added them anyway and I’m glad I did… I think they added. Picking them out was easy and putting them on my husband’s plate made him happy. Win, win.
We really liked this one. Skipped the mushrooms and it was still good. Next time I will try cooking the noodles in the pot. We had plenty of liquid, though we did add more flour and it was fine. A perfect Fall comfort food dinner.
I really liked this recipe, probably because of the mushrooms, and my husband thought it was okay. He still loves his momma’s beef stroganoff recipe the best, and anything else pales in comparison. Maybe someday I’ll modify that for the slow cooker and share it here!

My hubby LOVES beef stroganoff, so this would be a total win for him! As you saw from my post the other day, I am a fan of Crockpot Thursdays! :)-Ashley
You KNOW that grocery list made my day!!!
I LOVE the prep time of 15 minutes. Reading through this recipe made me realize how long it’s been since I’ve made this, although never before in a slow cooker. There’s mushroom lovers aplenty in my house, so I will be piling them on!
I would have doubled the mushrooms if I could. Maybe next time I will.
Okay…I’ve got the ingredients and am making this tomorrow. Wish me luck!!!
I’m dying to hear how this turned out!!
So good…it was so incredibly good! I left out the mushrooms, because although my husband and I love them, my kids act as if they are actual puppy ears I’m asking them to eat. Everyone loved it! Thank you so much!
I liked the recipe, but it barely had enough liquid for 12 oz. of noodles. I ended up added another 1 1/2 cups of water, and it still came out a little like paste.
Oh, no! I’m sorry to hear it didn’t work for you. Some slow cookers cook faster than others, maybe that’s why? It may depend on the leanness of the meat, too. Very lean meat won’t release as much of the juices. Thanks for providing your feedback!
Same here stuck to recipe and nearly dry in crockpot did pasta in pan best part of meal rest was tasteless and getting deleted
Mine came out very pasty,too. So now I boil the egg noodles separately and serve the stroganoff over the noodles. Love the Dijon,too.I did cut back on the flour,only 1tbsp I used,plus the 1cup of sour cream was used. Love the dish.🥰
Mine did not turn out at all =( the only thing I left out was mushrooms and onions because I don’t like them and it ended up being pastey. Ill probably try again but just cook noodles separately
Thanks for your feedback, Chauntae, and I’m sorry it didn’t turn out. I appreciate your willingness to try it again!
Just like many others, I made this and the noodles turned out gummy. I should have known better, using regular noodles and not boiling them never turns out well. Thank s too bad these reviews are hidden and I didn’t see them until I went to review it. I never would have made this.
I’m sorry you didn’t like it, and I appreciate your feedback about both the recipe and my blog layout. I hope you’ll give some of my other recipes a try!
I have family with mushroom allergies and was so excited to find a recipe without them.
Then let down when I found it in the recipe anyway, without substitute or instructions of what to add more of to take its place.
I made this with eggplant in place of the mushrooms. It is soooo good. Thank you for sharing.
