Roast Beef Stroganoff by Debbie K

This is a variation of a standby at my house. I often use it to use up leftover meat...anything goes.

For this meal I took 7+ pounds of roast beef in my large crockpot, added 7 cloves of garlic and 2 cups beef broth and cooked them on high all day. (This pot is notorious for cooking slow and it was full of meat- use your own judgment.)

I pulled out the roasts and divided them into the pans, pulling the meat apart.

Into the meat dripping I added 6 cans mushroom soup and 48 oz sour cream.

I cooked the egg noodles for three minutes and added everything into the pans with the meat. I sprinkled a bit more garlic powder and fresh ground pepper before stirring the pans and covering with foil.
I stuck them in the fridge overnight before adding them to the freezer.

To cook- thaw and cook at 350 for 35-40 minutes with the foil cover.

If the noodles seem dry after cooking, just add milk and stir - I've never tried freezing this meal, but the noodles tend to soak up the sauce if the meal sits out for long.

I used whole wheat noodles, that's all I've bought for over a year. My family didn't notice when I switched and it seemed like a good way to make our pasta meals spiked with a bit of fiber.


  1. This was SUPER-delicious! Top noodles got a tiny bit crisp in the oven-- don't know if baking it covered would be helpful. We just mixed it all up before serving so not really a problem. Kids and grown-ups all had seconds and the tiny bit of leftovers (hoarded by me) were yummy too!!

  2. The kids and I enjoyed this meal. The hubby didn't care for it, but he is not a fan of stroganoff. We did the same as Mags, just mixed it up with the juices on the bottom and it was fine.

  3. This was very tasty. It had a great flavor and there was plenty of good juices. Thanks!

  4. This was a wonderful dinner. It was a big hit with our family. We had plenty to eat and a few, just a few leftovers. (It must have been good). When I noticed the noodles becoming a little dry on top, I just mixed it up a couple times during the cooking and covered it. Thanks for a great meal!

  5. This meal was great! We loved the chunks of beef in the dish. Thanks!
