Cowgirl Beef Stroganoff Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
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.

This dish smells so good, several neighbors asked what I was cooking. I about 1/4 cup of white wine, and next time I make this, I'll add a beef bullion cube to amp up the flavor a bit. Garnished with caramelized mushrooms. Used an 8 ounce package. Very good. I'll make it again.

I really love slow cooker recipes, but I don't think Beef Stroganoff is a dish that is served well by this cooking method. The favor was flat, and, while I appreciated the addition of fresh mushrooms, since the mushrooms didn't cook with other ingredients, the imparted none of the flavor. I didn't care at all for the cream cheese in this dish. The point was, I'm sure, was to re-create the consistency, but it left the exact wrong flavor that you get from a good rue. I have tried a couple other slow-cooker recipes for stroganoff (found here at allrecipes), and would recommend one of them if you absolutely can't afford the time.
