Crockpot Beef Stroganoff is a cozy, comforting, easy meal the whole family craves.

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

I took one look at tomorrow’s forecasted high of 1ºF and decided to get my outdoor run completed today instead. Because today was a balmy high of 5ºF and I’d be crazy to waste that kind of warmth. I brought Bulldog along since he’s been going stir crazy.

The number of times Bulldog suddenly halted me mid-run to do his business = 5
The number of times my frozen fingers dropped Bulldog’s leash = 3
The number of times I tripped over Bulldog’s leash and fell = 1
The number of times I saw another human being outside = 0

Clearly, I’m not bringing Bulldog next time. And I’m apparently the only wacky person who deliberately chose to step outside.

Everyone has been hunkering down and staying cozy these past 2 weeks when Minneapolis turned into City of Polar Vortex. I obviously miss California on days like this. But. The silver linings: lavender scented candles, warm fleece slippers, and this utterly comforting Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff.

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff is easy to throw together for a weeknight meal.

Whenever the cold weather hits, I’m all about comforting slow cookers meals or bumping up the oven to warm up the house.

I love my Crock-Pot’s ability to make the house smell amazing as it slowly cooks our dinner all by itself. This Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is basically hands-off after you toss all the goodness in the slow cooker. Set it, forget it, and eat it later.

This beef stroganoff is intensely flavorful, supremely tender, and blankets all with comfort.

Plus, this is a pretty healthy meal to start the year off right. Serve this slow cooker beef stroganoff over egg noodles, GF noodles, rice, or some crusty French bread. 

Here’s to warmer days ahead and beef stroganoff til then.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 15 minutes
Servings: 6 -8
Author: Amy Dong


  • 3 TB butter
  • 1 onion, medium sized, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 lbs boneless beef sirloin, sliced into strips
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 10.75 oz French onion soup, canned
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 oz cream cheese, plain, whole, fully softened
  • 8 oz Greek whole plain yogurt
  • Freshly chopped parsley or chives for garnish

Serve with buttered egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice


  • In a large pan, heat butter over medium high heat just until hot. Add onion and garlic, stirring until translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add beef, kosher salt, and black pepper; sauté 2-3 minutes or until beef is just browned on the exterior.
  • Transfer beef mixture into slow cooker. Add French onion soup and mushrooms. Cover and cook on low 5 hours or just until beef is tender.
  • Soften cream cheese by microwaving it in a bowl for 30 seconds at a time, until it is fully soft. Stir to ensure it is completely smooth. Very gently stir smooth cream cheese and Greek yogurt into the beef stroganoff (don’t over-stir, as this may cause tender beef to break apart.) Cover and continue to cook on low another 30-60 min. Gently spoon beef and sauces over noodles or rice of your choice. Garnish as desired.


Leftover beef stroganoff (without noodles or rice) can be kept in airtight container in fridge for 2-3 days. Gently reheat on stovetop or microwave before spooning over noodles/rice.

    Question: Could you use the softer whipped cream cheese instead of worrying about softening up the brick of cream cheese? This recipe looks awesome and I have to try it! Thank you for posting it.

      • Amy Dong

      Yes, that’s a great idea, Sandy! You may need to use a bit more, for the same amount of creaminess, since whipped cream cheese is is less dense.

    • Barbara

    Could I use a package of dry onion soup instead of the can? I have that on hand.

      • chewoutloud

      Yes, Barbara, you can use that and add liquid according to the package instructions. Hope you love this! 🙂

    I threw this in the crock pot while home at lunch time. When we all go home around 5:15, I added the cream cheese and yogurt, cooked the noodles and it was all done and ALL DELICIOUS!! I had never consider beef stroganoff could be made in my crock pot. It was so easy and so darn delicious! I love your recipes. They’re easy and practical and all that I’ve made are so tasty. I like knowing I’m cooking a good meal for the family; and it doesn’t take much time at all with your recipes. Thank you!!!! You make me feel good and confident about cooking – and to my family I’m a rock star in the kitchen. Thanks, again!
