GW, I agree about pressure cooker... I had never used it before I came to Italy and was always a bit scared to use it, but Cris had taught me the art of this lovely useful gadget (and ours have a triple safety device), and it is becoming one of my favourite kitchen tool!! I highly recommend it to anyone who has yet to experience the wonder of pressure cooker!!

Crockpot dishes really should not be stirred that often. Every time the lid is removed from the crockpot the heat escapes and the dish takes longer to cook. I used to do that all the time and wondered why my crockpot dishes took so long to cook. So, the less stirring the better.

PS, PA Baker your recipe sounds delicious!!

If you have neither a slow cooker, or pressure cooker, then a roasting pan, with a lid, and a 175 degree oven will work just as well. If you have any ceramic, or glass casserole dishes, with lids, even better. There are alwaysa thousand different ways to make any recipe, and a thousand cooking techniques for cooking them. (well, maybe not a thousand, but many to be sure). And I almost forgot, anything that can be made in a slow cooker, can be made in either a well-seasoned cast iron dutch oven (or pan with lid), or enamled cast-iron pot, and on top of the stove to boot.

Thanks Goodweed, you're right on we have do not have a pressure cooker either, but as you suggested a pot on the stove is the way I always make this dish (lol, even when I had a crockpot). My TNT Stroganoff recipe is one that I really treasure as it was handed down through the generations to me - only thing I change (aside from the meat sometimes) is to leave out my grandfather's rather untraditional addition of MSG!

I really like the idea of making it in the oven, as opposed to the stove top, thanks Goodweed, those are all very handy and helpful thoughts

I like the up to 10 hours in the pot feature, PA. I will have to try this pretty soon.

This recipe sounds like a keeper! I'm glad it can be done on the stove as I don't own a crock pot. I am thinking of getting one soon though. Any particular brand you would recommend?

PA, I made this yesterday and am very pleased with the results. Put it on about 9 a.m. and dished it out around 6 or 6:30 p.m., I think.

To those of you who were dubious about tomatoes, don't worry. They totally disappear and add a nice piquancy to this dish. I used a can of whole tomatoes and squished 'em up with my hands first before throwing them in the pot.

The DH loves beef stroganoff. I will have to give this a whirl. How did yours turn out PA? I've had a crock pot for at least 2 years and have never used it, this will probably be the first thing I make in it.
