I know I have shared some of my favorite recipes in the past but think I will try to do that more often. This week I want to share a crock pot meal both of my kids will eat.... yep both the 8 year old who thinks he is a teenager and the red headed stubborn 4 year old.
This Recipe comes from an old Gooseberry Patch cookbook. They used to have a catalog and man do I love their stuff. Its for Beef Stroganoff. It is super easy. You will need crock pot, 1 lb of round steak, 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 can of cream of celery,1 package of egg noodles, 1 packet of Beefy Onion dry soup mix (come two in the box) and this is totally optional but I love the slow cooker liners because they make clean up a breeze. (See Photo Below) My Tip: My local Winn Dixie has this on sale from time to time so does our local meat store. When it is on sale I buy it and split it up in 1 lb packs. I wrap in nonstick foil then in a freezer Ziploc bag. I write on the outside what it is and date it... always date it. Usually I can get 2.5 lbs for about $8 which makes two meals! The beefy onion dry soup I can usually find for $1.50 for two meals, cans of soup about $1 each and noodles about $1... bring meal total under $8
You cube the round steak and put in the crock pot, then add the two cans of soup, sprinkle the beefy onion soup on top with a little salt and pepper per taste, stir a little and then turn it on low for 6-8 hours. About 15 mins before its done make the noodles. Serve the mixture on the noodles and we like ours by itself but you can add some veggie sides or a slaw would be good. and enjoy. This is a very fulling and prefect for a fall or winter day! Not to mention it takes minutes to prepare and leaves you plenty of time for crafting....
