This flavorful Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff is topped with a spicy dill-horseradish cream taking this retro dish into the stratosphere. The cream is optional but, adds a nice kick that compliments the beef perfectly.
Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff
Beef Stroganoff is another one of those retro comfort food meals. Just like slow cooked chuck roast, the slow cooking process not only adds to the ease of preparation, the beef turns out so succulent and tender. Topping this dish with a dollop of dill infused horseradish cream is optional but, it compliments the flavor of the beef so well. Add a side salad and a warm buttery garlic bread and it's company worthy.
Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff Making Tips
- I used top sirloin steak in this stroganoff but, thick cut round steak could be used, too.
- Dill and horseradish aren't typically paired with stroganoff but, the flavor combination seems to elevates this dish. It's the unexpected, if you will.
- Since the sour cream is not being incorporated with any other ingredient to stabilize it, it's important to wait until the end of cooking to add it.
- In addition to egg noodles as a foundation, we love beef stroganoff served atop a heaping helping of mashed potatoes from time to time, as well.
