I followed this recipe faithfully, as stroganoff is a favorite with us, and slow cooker recipes are always welcome. But the stew beef is the only element that is cooked in the slow cooker. You still have to cook the noodles and put the rest of the dish together. Stew meat is not well-suited to this dish--better to slice the beef thinly and cook it quickly over high heat while the noodles boil. The use of cream cheese, especially an entire package, makes for a gluey consistency as well. I think it would be far superior with thinly sliced sautéed beef, sautéed onions and fresh mushrooms, and a sauce made simply from broth and sour cream, seasoned to taste. I'm not trying to be overly critical; the dish just seemed confusing, and with far too many clashing ingredients, and with no clear goal--taste, convenience, or healthiness.
