Growing up, beef stroganoff was a dish that consisted of ground beef, onions and cream of mushroom soup served over noodles. It was fast, inexpesive and I’ll be honest, delicious. Total comfort food.
This version is more traditional – sliced steak and mushrooms, with a lightened up sauce. Throw it in the slow cooker in the morning and spend the rest of the day awaiting this delicious dinner!
Serve it up with whole wheat or egg noodles and a big green salad (and maybe a glass of red).
