Beef Stroganoff - Prikroy menya!

Some recipes cannot be perfected immediately and require practice and tweaking to achieve the desired or optimal taste as well consistency and appearance.

I think today after two previous attempts have perfected this version of beef stroganoff.

For the first time I am going to post my tweaked recipe. I hope you give this a try it is so so good - minimal ingredients tremendous flavor.

  • 1.5 -2 lbs beef stew
  • 3 beef bouillon
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 large tablespoons of sour cream
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper or steak seasoning to taste
  • Coarse black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes

Season beef with salt pepper steak seasoning and garlic powder and leave to rest 1 hr in the fridge

Heat skillet with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Dump meat in to pan on high heat and cook until brown approx 5 minutes
Remove from heat and pour into slow cooker on high heat
Return skillet to stove add butter and when melted add chopped onion and cook till caramelized. Meanwhile add 3 bouillon to 3 cups of warm water and dissolve then add to the onions and bring to a boil for 3 minutes.
Pour everything into slow cooker.

Allow meat to cook for 3 hours or until tender.
Add cream cheese in chunks and stir to dissolve
Next add sour cream and stir to dissolve
Season to taste
Add fresh chopped chive and or parsley

If the sauce isn’t thick enough dissolve 2 teaspoons of corn starch in ½ cups of the sauce then return to the slow cooker and cook until it thickens stirring occasionally. Add Pepper flakes to taste.

Serve with pasta, rice or sauteed vegetables.
