Why we love this slow cooker beef stroganoff recipe
- Slow cooker recipes are great all year round – they’re convenient in the summer because they keep the kitchen cool and can cook while we’re out having fun. This beef stroganoff is also awesome in the winter because it’s warm and hearty!
- We have a freezer full of beef and are always looking for ways to use it up! Especially ways to use cube steak and round steak!
- There’s no funky ingredients here – just wholesome food you can feel good about.
- It’s a “dump and go” recipe. On second thought, that doesn’t sound appetizing.
Here’s what I mean – the prep time is minimal. We’re talking mere minutes!
You can have dinner cooking in ten minutes or less thanks to shortcuts like using stew meat which is already cut, pre-sliced mushrooms, and jarred, minced garlic.
Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff as a freezer meal
If you want to take your meal planning game to the next level, you can make beef stroganoff as a freezer meal!
What does this mean? It means you can assemble most of the ingredients, freeze them for later, and pull it out when you need a grab and cook meal.
I wouldn’t make it through our harvest season without easy freezer meals!
