Everyday Mom's Meals: Gotta Love the Crock Pot

Gotta Love the Crock Pot

One of Adam's favorite meals is beef stroganoff. His mom has a recipe she has used for years and he has loved it from the first time. But it's a little complicated and time consuming, so when I found this one in a "one pot meal" cookbook, I jumped at the chance to try it; and he LOVED it. It tastes just like he remembers and it so super easy for me. This has become his annual birthday meal; and w/ it being in July, it's great for a hot summer day b/c it doesn't require the oven. I love my husband and I love being able to put something on the table that brings a huge smile to his face. And while most things I cook achieve that, this one produces a little extra twinkle in those big brown eyes :)

Beef Stroganoff

2 lb. stew meat (I usually cut up a round steak)
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 medium onion chopped
1 6 oz. can mushrooms drained
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/2 tsp pepper
8 oz sour cream
Egg noodles cooked and drained

In crock pot combine first 7 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Stir in sour cream. Serve over noodles.

This looks so good. I'm going to stop by the store tonight to pick up the ingredients for it!
