Beef Stroganoff in slow cooker

My quick lazy version of beef stroganoff used to come from a sachet.

Holding an 8-5 job with 2 young 'always hungry' children, to have a home cooked meal from scratch, was an impossible task to achieve.

Hence, flavours from sachets became super handy.

Ever since we moved to Perth, and I opt to be a stay-at -home mom, I have more time in my hand.
I was able to browse my old cookbooks collection that was gathering dust before and chanced upon this Beef Stroganoff, from scratch.

Never looked back since, it's my go to beef stroganoff recipe.

No more sachets for me!

What is the best beef cut to use for Beef Stroganoff?

For this recipe I used gravy beef.

I have used other cut before but since I am going to slow cook it, using gravy beef is the best option.

Beef Stroganoff will be full of flavours, the sauce will be thick and creamy and the beef pieces or strips will be soft and tender (not as dry as other beef cut).

I prefer to serve my Beef Stroganoff with fettuccine.

Unfortunately, this particular day, I ran out of fettuccine :(

So I used other shaped pasta instead.

However, in many other countries, Beef Stroganoff are known to be served with rice or noodles.

I prefer mine with pasta :)
