Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff ~The Kitchen Witch ~ Beef Stroganoff in the Crock Pot

Oh my gosh everyone! Life has been so incredibly busy this year I can't even tell you - and we're only 1 month into the New Year. Which just proves the adage: "If you build it (and believe in it) they will come." And so much of what I've been building over the last few years has been coming into success.

I'm not complaining, though, I have nothing but gratitude for the many blessings I'm experiencing. But the thing is, the more successful a project, or projects, become means less time to spend on personal lives, self care, and meal planning - and that's exactly where I've been the last few months. Run off my feet with so many great ideas to share with the world about simple cooking and recipe creation, but no time to actually make things myself.

That's where this week's recipe comes in - and the meal planner I have coming Friday. It's all about taking the time to pre-plan, make some meal kits, and enjoy great food throughout the week with very little effort.

And today's delicious recipe for Beef Stroganoff cooked in the crock pot is proof positive that it's all worthwhile!

The sauce is velvety and deep and unctuous. The meat tender, and the taste - spectacular!

People, this one is a total winner  for entertaining or weeknight dinners. Best of all, nobody but you (and me) will ever know how easy it was to put together!
