Post Looking for slow cooker beef stroganoff stew

I would like to know if you can make slow cooker beef stroganoff stew out of a chuck roast or New York Strips since my wife has ALS and some foods are hard to eat.
I like to make things that are easy to eat for her.

Any ideals to make this out of? I have these cuts in my freezer so why not make things out of these cuts.

Hi, nhoj. Beef stroganoff and stew are 2 different things, but I think I know what you mean.

Here's one, just from a really quick search. Don't cook the egg noodles in the slow cooker - they'll turn to mush. Cook them separately on the stove top according to package directions, and mix everything together before serving. You also might want to slice your beef very thinly and against the grain, so your wife will be able to chew it easier.

You could throw in some frozen peas or carrots, or both, halfway through cooking time if you want to.

Looking for slow cooker beef stroganoff stew

Chuck roast makes good CP stew, and probably stroganoff too. I haven't tried NY strip stew, but it would probably work fine.

This sounded good, I haven't tried it: http://www.deepsouthdish.com/2013/02...#axzz3R4xxaQNu

Good advice from Cheryl.

If she likes pork, a pork shoulder or butt is something that's very versatile (bbq pulled pork, Asian, Italian etc).

It's perfect for a crockpot and comes out meltingly tender.

My hardest task is to get the chuck roast tender, my always comes out tough and hard to eat.
I have NO idea what I am doing wrong.
I have chuck roast before at different places and it is so tender that it almost melts in your month.

There most be a secret in making it so tender.

That's why I thought chuck roast be good for Beef Stroganoff.

By the way I made my New York Strips like Cube Steak by pounding them and they came out very good. That was one of my questions a few weeks ago.

If the chuck roast is tough, it hasn't been cooked long enough. It also needs to be cooked at a relatively low temperature.

+1. After 6 hours or so in the slow cooker, it will be fall apart tender.

Do you feel that it would be a good slice cut for Beef Stroganoff?

Put everything but the noddles in it right?

I am learning how to cook after 4o some years of being married by asking questions here.

If it wouldn't be for all of you here I do not know where I go.

Any good recipes for chicken?

In my opinion, yes, it would be a good cut of meat for your beef stroganoff. And for stew, as Dawg said. And yes, add the cooked noodles before serving. You'll get the hang of cooking.

As for the chicken, let us know what kind of chicken dishes you and your wife like, and someone will be along to offer recipes based on your likes and what she can comfortably eat. Sending good thoughts to both of you.


You might want to browse through here when you have time, there are some good recipes listed.

Beef stroganoff is made with fillet steak and cooked in a very few minutes in a sauté pan on top of the stove. Why would you need a slow cooker?
