This was definitely an interesting project for
me. First off, I have never used a slow cooker before in my life!!
Heck, I'll even admit it that I never even knew that a slow cooker
is the same thing as a crock pot.
Anyways, so I came about this project because this one time that
I was eating at Roda Viva, a churrasco(or Brazilian BBQ), my friend
was very excited that they had stroganoff. Now I never had tried
stroganoff at this time so all I saw was a thick gravy type of
stew...Anyways, well I promised her that I would attempt to cook
her some stroganoff some day, and here I am! To do this project,
I went out and bought a slow cooker! If you know me, you know
that if I am looking for an appliance, and they happen to have
a stainless steel one...well I am as good as set on that one!
Here is a picture of my brand new slow cooker!
Anyhow, here is the recipe for this easy to do
1 pound cubed beef stew meat
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed golden mushroom
1/2 cup chopped onion (or onion soup mix for those
who don't like fresh onions)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup water (I ended up using about 1/4 red
wine and then 1/8 water)
4 ounces cream cheese
Pepper and Salt to your liking
Try to make sure that you get nice beef for this
stroganoff because it comes out dry and not so tasty if you get
meat that has been on the shelves too long. Also, if you'd like
to have a thicker gravy, you might want to try browning the meat
prior to combining the ingredients into the slow cooker. After
you have gathered the ingredients together and have washed the
meat, combine all the stuff into the slow cooker and cook it on
low for 8 hours or high for about 5 hours.
