Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker
This was pretty good. Used pork sirloin roast (half the price of pork tenderloin) Left out soy sauce based on other reviews. Husband and I agreed the wine flavor was a little strong. And the dry onion soup mix was a little artificial tasting. Next time we will use real broth (vegetable or chicken) and add a real chopped onion and crushed garlic to the broth. Recommend flipping roast at least once so flavorful juices get into entire thing.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Followed this recipe and it turned out great! I left out the chives because I didn't want it too oniony. Will use this recipe again as a base for other additions.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
Delicious with the following adjustments based on others feedback: Double recipe - 2 pounds good sirloin Low setting 5-6 hours. No water, only beef broth - 1 can. No chopped onions. Use 1 packet of Onion soup mix. Add a large dollop (1/2 cup) of sour cream at the end. Add sauteed mushrooms near end.
