Y’all. How is Christmas only five days away?! I don’t know where the month went, but I do know that I need to get crackin’ on the rest of my holiday to-do list. So that pretty much means no time for extraneous cooking…it’s a toss-it-in-the-crock-pot-and-dinner-is-done kind of week.
Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s go ahead and make dinner warm and comforting to ward off the recent frigid temps, shall we? But if you’re reading this from a warm and sunny land with no Arctic temperatures to be found, you’re not excluded…soup is a good way for everyone to get into a winter-y mood, just in time for Christmas. 😉
Lucky for us, this Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Soup meets all of the above requirements beautifully! I took my family’s favorite Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff recipe (with NO icky gravy packets or condensed cans of ‘cream of X’) and turned it into a soup. Soup lovers rejoice!
It’s so easy, friends, and soooo delicious. Simply load up your crock pot in the morning with chunks of beef (either beef stew meat or cubed chuck roast), mushrooms, and garlic. Pour in some beef broth and a bit of red wine for good measure, and flavor with Worcestershire, Dijon, herbs, and spices. Then let ‘er rip! After cooking all day — and shortly before you’re ready to eat — stir in some fresh parsley, sour cream, and a bag of egg noodles. Before you know it, dinner is served! And by dinner, I mean the heartiest, tastiest, warm-you-up-from-your-toes kind of soup.
In full disclosure (and my regular readers already know this about me), I have this *thing* about onions. As in, I abhor them. 🙂 But I recognize that Beef Stroganoff usually includes onions along with all those yummy mushrooms, and I actually bought an onion with the intention of slicing half of it up to include in this recipe. But then — because I’m honestly just not in the habit of thinking about onions — I completely forgot to add them. Ooops. So pretend that onions are in there and add some to your soup if you like. Just know that this batch of Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Soup didn’t technically have any (hallelujah, I say — ha).
Before I get to today’s recipe, however, I’ve got a special treat for y’all! My sweet friend Kristi, of the fabulous lifestyle blog I Should Be Mopping the Floor, just came out with her first book, and it’s different than any book I’ve ever seen! Her book actually helped me menu plan(!!!) for this week, which is how I came up with Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff Soup in the first place. 😉
Home Organization Tear-Outs for the Whole Family is full of pages to help you organize your entire home, from tippy-top to basement bottom! The pages are tear-out, so you can use them straight out of the book…or you can make copies in order to re-use the pages over and over. Or, in some cases, you can laminate or frame the pages for use with a dry erase marker to make updates on an ongoing basis!
The weekly menu planner and freezer inventory sheets are two that I honed in on immediately, because I could definitely use a little organizational assistance in those areas of my life. But there’s actually an entire chapter devoted to Whipping Your Kitchen Into Shape…
…and lots of fun and useful ways to use those pages!
Now while I’m immediately drawn to anything cooking-related, I’m also extremely excited about all of the other topics in the book. How ’bout a sneak peek of the chapters?
