We love beef stroganoff, but I had a really hard time finding a good recipe.  Until I found this one and I love this version! This recipe starts in the slow cooker and finishes on the stove so it’s not very labor intensive at all.  Don’t let the  laundry list of ingredients scare you off — it’s very easy!  I decreased the amount of sour cream called for in the original because I think it overwhelmed the other flavors and increased the mushrooms because I love them!  If your roast is frozen solid just cook it on high in the slow cooker for 2 hours and then on low for another 6 hours.

(I forgot to snap a picture! Sorry! But this is so good, that I still wanted to share.)
