Rich and Creamy Beef Stroganoff
This was FANTASTIC! I followed the advice from someone else and saved the beef drippings. I then added enough beef stock to bring it up to the 1 1/3 cup mark. I read the reviews about decreasing the red pepper, but followed the recipe and didn't find the dish to be overly spicy. This is a keeper! It ALWAYS takes me way more time to prep than others apparently, but still, it was worth every minute of the time I spent in the kitchen! I did almost forget to purchase the noodles for this dish, so it would be great to see that added to the ingredients list.

Cowgirl Beef Stroganoff
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.
