Healthy Crock-Pot Beef Stroganoff: An easy, healthy delicious meal the whole family will enjoy!

Healthy Crock-Pot Beef Stroganoff

By on December 7, 2015

The crock-pot is a wonderful invention.  It is a time saver for busy days. It is comfort food for chilly fall and winter days. The crock-pot means less time in the kitchen and more time for fun. When food cooks in the crock-pot the whole house smell yummy! And the crock-pot can be healthy! It just depends on what you put in it.  

My mom used to make classic beef stroganoff.  It was a favorite meal growing up and is a favorite now for family dinners.  It can also be a special meal for company.  It is easy and uses ingredients you most likely already have.  Rarely are there any leftovers.  Depending upon the appetites of your family members you may want to double this recipe as it only makes 4 servings.  

Trimming the fat off the meat and using organic ingredients when possible helps to clean up this dish.  You can use plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream, however my hubby prefers the sour cream.  I also found whole wheat egg noodles that I substituted for traditional egg noodles. I did not say anything and no one complained so I would say that the noodles are keepers.Crock-pot time savers, makes clean up a breeze!

As a side note regarding crock-pots, I will admit that I used to shy away from them because I really disliked cleaning
it… Not anymore!  You can now purchase handy dandy disposable crock-pot liner bags.  I highly recommend them.
No more scrubbing stuck on food for me!  Clean up is a breeze with these bags, just toss it in the trash!  I also found a crock pot with a warming feature (it switches to warm when it is done cooking). So dust off your crock-pot, gather your ingredients and let’s get cooking!

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
