CrockPot Fever

California CrockPot Dreamin

Fall is my favorite time of year!  We don’t get quite as much of a season-change here in Southern California, but I’ll take any temperature drop that I can get.  There’s nothing like coming in from the cold weather to a warm house with the aroma of good food that’s been cooking all day in the CrockPot.

Recently, I had a morning that it stayed in the low 60s for a few hours, so what did I do?  I did what any Northern California girl would do… grabbed my crockpot and threw together this recipe.  My little one was by my side to enjoy the ease of crockpot cooking!

Slow cookers (also known as “Crockpots”) make homemade meals a cinch—simply fill them with your ingredients in the morning, and by the time you get home from work, dinner is ready to be served! We rounded up some quick ingredients to enjoy one of my dads favorite crockpot meals, Beef Strogonoff, here is the recipe.

DADOS CROCKPOT BEEF STROGONOFF

2LBS  CUBED STEW MEAT

2 CUPS CONDENSED GOLDEN MUSHROOM SOUP

1 DICED LARGE ONION

2 +3/4 TBLSP WORCESTERSHIRE  SAUCE

1/2 CUP WATER

8 OZ CREAM CHEESE

1 tsp. GARLIC SALT

1/2 CLOVE GARLIC – DICED

MIX IN SLOW COOKER ALL INGREDIENTS* *EXCEPT MEAT AND CREAM CHEESE
STIR UNTIL ALL BLENDED ~ THEN ADD MEAT AND STIR
COOK ON LOW 6-8 HOURS (UNTIL MEAT IS TENDER)
 CUT  CREAM CHEESE INTO CUBES

The colder months are the perfect time of year to put your slow cooker recipes to good use…but you can enjoy the benefits of a crockpot year round!

    Looks yummy, Lori! Can’t wait to try this. What kind of meat do you recommend? Also, does this work well with low fat soup & cream cheese?
