I'm lazy and I need something easy!

I was feeling very lazy Friday, but I needed to use the pound and a half of chuck stew meat that was in my firdge. I decided to make a slow cooker beef stroganoff. It was super easy, and very comforting.

  • 1 1/2 lbs chuck stew meat
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup beef stock or broth
  • salt and pepper
  • flour for dredging meat
  • 3 tbs. vegetable oil
    couple of dashes of Worcestershire
  • 1 cup baby bella mushrooms
    1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 lb farfalle (bow tie pasta)

Put slow cooker on low and throw in onions and garlic. Season meat with salt and pepper, and dredge them in flour. In a medium sized skillet heat oil over medium heat and brown on all sides. Transfer to the slow cooker. In a bowl, mix soup, beef stock, and Worcestershire. Add to slow cooker. Mix contents of the slow cooker together and let cook for 5-6 hours.After cooking for 5-6 hours add mushrooms and sour cream, let cook 30 more minutes. After adding mushrooms and sour cream, bring a large post of water to boil, add pasta and cook 10-12 minutes.

Transfer pasta and beef stroganoff to a large bowl combine and serve.
