Beef for Stroganoff

When making classic beef stroganoff, I use a tender cut of beef and cook it quickly so it doesn’t overcook.

For slow cooker beef stroganoff use stewing meat (or chuck roast if you have it), the meat will become very tender as it cooks low and slow. If you use a lean cut of beef, it will dry out and become tough.

You can use ground beef in this recipe to create a ground beef stroganoff. Replace the stewing beef with 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef. Brown the ground beef and drain any fat, add to the slow cooker and proceed as written.

How Long to Cook Beef Stroganoff in a Crock Pot

Depending on your time frame, you can cook this dish on low all day in the crock pot while you’re at work. Or you can speed things by setting your crock pot to high, depends on you! Cooking either way develops so much flavor with tender meat!

  • Cook on Low: 7 to 8 hours before the meat is tender.
  • Cook on High:  4 to 5 hours to get the same tender meat effect.

I make this recipe with sour cream which is traditional however, you can also make crock pot beef stroganoff with cream cheese. It is a little creamier than regular sour cream and only requires just a tad more stirring!
