This recipe for slow cooker beef stroganoff is just as easy as warming up a can of ‘cream of’ soup, but without the preservatives. It’s simple, fast and totally tasty!
Most beef stews are made up of beef chuck. If beef chuck roast or steaks are on sale at your local grocery, pick up 2 lbs and cut them up into cubes. It never hurts to go for a little additional savings on your grocery bill, right?
Button or cremini mushrooms are the best for beef stroganoff. You can even make an extra batch for the freezer—serve it one week with noodles and the next week with mashed potatoes. It’s two meals in one trip to the kitchen!

- 14.5 oz can beef broth
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp beef bouillon
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
