Looking for a quick and easy dinner this busy season? During the holiday season I love to have a few recipes on hand to make some quick and easy dinners. Our days are often filled with other activities and it’s hard to have delicious meals on the table during the week when we’re short on time. If you are looking for a quick and easy dinner try this Beef Stroganoff recipe. All you need for this delicious dinner is a total of 6 ingredients and a slow cooker and you’ll have dinner ready to go with just a few minutes of preparation.
We were babysitting our grandchildren recently while our daughter was out of town. She left all the ingredients and the recipe for this meal. I was able to put it together while the grandchildren were eating breakfast. In no time at all the entire house was filled with the tantalizing aroma of beef stroganoff!
Quick and Easy Dinners – Beef Stroganoff
2 pounds of stew meat
1 pound of sliced mushrooms
½ cup red wine
1 Tbsp. Beef stock paste (or 2 bouillon cubes)
½ cup sour cream
Add 1 cup of water to your slow cooker before starting. Add all the ingredients EXCEPT the sour cream to the crock-pot. Cook on low for 8 hours. Stir in ½ cup sour cream just before serving. Serve with rice or noodles. Makes 4-6 servings.
Special notes: If you add the sour cream at the beginning it will curdle. If you plan to freeze this meal do not add the sour cream.
That’s it, such a quick and easy dinner. Put everything in the crockpot while the kids are getting ready for school and by the time they come home the house will be filled with delicious smells. Just the kind of meal I enjoy. A little morning prep time and when dinnertime rolls around all you need to do is mix up a salad and cook some noodles and dinner is ready.
