Slow-Cooked Beef Stroganoff

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff | NatashasKitchen.com

This Beef Stroganoff recipe takes the classic beef stroganoff recipe and turns it into an easy slow-cooker meal. Tender beef, hearty mushrooms and a creamy sauce poured over a bowl of warm egg noodles is the definition of comfort food. It also re-heats well. Read on to enter the giveaway!June is National Dairy Month and I for one am thankful for dairy. Butter, cheese, milk, yogurt; I wouldn’t want to cook without them! It’s also perfect timing for the release of this cookbook that compiles recipes from America’s dairy farmers, The Dairy Good Cookbook.

Great big thank you to all of the families who work hard to produce all the wholesome dairy products that our family enjoys and to Dairy Good for sponsoring this post (as always, the opinions and text are my own).

A little about this cookbook:

*113 everyday, family-friendly recipes shared by the folks who work hard to create the dairy products we love.
*You get a glimpse of the families that produce the dairy products in your fridge. I particularly liked reading about the Lourenzo family from Oregon who get their children involved with their farm. It’s similar to our family’s story (minus the cows, of course). We also love to get the whole family involved with our blog; developing recipes together and giving our son a deeper appreciation for what’s on his dinner plate. The book doubles as a teaching tool to show kids where their dairy products come from.
*The Dairy Good Cookbook is available in stores nationwide or can also be purchased online through Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Indie Bound

    We have a cream cheese pound cake recipe that has become a family standard and favorite. My dad was first to make it and I also make it on occasion. This super rich cake has a whopping 6 eggs in it and 2 full sticks of butter! As kids, my siblings and I loved this cake and now our chilren have grown to love it as well to the point that they fight over who’s going to get the last piece.

    I made the beef stroganoff last night. It turned out yum yum yummy! I made homemade egg noodles to go with it. Even my three-year old son loved it. Only thing I’ll do next time is add more mushrooms…just cause I love them! Thanks for another great recipe. Reply

    A recipe that has been passed down to me in my family is ham & cheese crepes, they are just so delicious and can be frozen!
    Recipe as follows
    • 2/3 cup cold water
    • 2/3 cup plus 4 to 6 tablespoons cold milk, divided
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/4 cup butter, melted
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    • 1 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 8 thin slices deli ham
    • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

    • • In a blender, combine the water, 2/3 cup of milk, flour, eggs, butter and salt. Cover and process until smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Add remaining milk if batter is too thick.
    • • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 3 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Yield: 16 crepes.
    • • To use frozen crepes: Thaw 8 crepes in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. Spread each with mustard; top with a slice of ham and sprinkle with cheese. Roll up tightly.
    • • Place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 10-14 minutes or until heated through.

    I grew up in Hong Kong and one of the famous dessert is custard tart. The silky custard is made with whole milks, eggs, sugar; all baked in a buttery crust. My Aunt make this tart every year at our Christmas family gathering and I make it for my kids from time to time at home. It’s probably my favorite dessert to enjoy.

    Potato gratin. Thinly sliced potatoes and onions, a bit of flour, butter, salt and pepper, and then fill the baking dish with enough milk to cover everything. My mom learned it from her mom, who grew up on a farm. We used to comment on how it was a total farmer food. Delicious. Reply

    I’d love to learn great recipes that include dairy. I personally make my own sour cream from buttermilk. My mom has taught me how to make it since I got married. I’m used to Russian sour cream and store bought just doesn’t do it. I mix the whipping cream and half/half into the buttermilk and let it sit out for a day. Reply

    Malochnaya kasha (Milk and rice with some sugar) growing up with 5 kids in our family. Grandma would make this and divide it evenly into every plate.

This wasn’t all the time but if you ask my other siblings they will agree it was a good childhood memory. Reply

    My dad is Swedish (I am adopted from Korea) and his mom always made him “Swedish pancakes” which are flour, milk, eggs, baking powder, and a little salt. I am not sure of their exact European origin, but they are different than typical American fluffy pancakes. They are slightly thicker than a crepe and he used to make them for me growing up every Sunday morning. I would enjoy them with a little butter and syrup then place a sausage link on top and roll it up 🙂 Now I make them for my husband and son and I still love them. So simple, but delicious and reminds me of my childhood! Reply

    Growing up, my grandma lived in Georgia and when I was little, the first recipe she taught me to make was cheesy mashed potatoes with whole milk.

    Oh that’s a hard question. We use dairy in almost everything, especially good ole’ sour cream! A favorite recipe that has been passed down in the family is “molochna kasha”, pretty much rice with milk, a rice pudding. You probably know what I am talking about.
