Rookie cook here--one and a half cups of beef boullion? That's insane! Plus it doesn't say to add water! This was the saltiest, most inedible, disgusting thing ever. I wasted a whole bunch of food and never want to cook again thanks to this misleading, horrible recipe.
Thought it was deeeelicious! I actually got scared because when I put everything in the crockpot I thought, there's no way there's going to be enough water that this doesn't burn... so I added in some beef broth. Now my end result did not have a thick sauce like the original meal's picture but the flavor was amazing! Will definitely make again. Husband really liked it too and he doesn't like mushrooms or onions. Why would I make this meal when he doesn't like two main components of it, you ask? Well I love stroganoff so he just had to deal one night, and he ended up liking it so jokes on him! haha. No but for real, it was YUM.
This was a hit with my wife and son, that's a big deal because they generally don't like beef so I was going out on a limb with this one.
I used beef consomme instead of bouillon, not sure how much of a difference that made. I also put the salt and flour in a ziplock bag with the beef. I had my daughter shake the bag. She thought that was fun.
Next time I might add some worcestershire sauce to bring out more "beefy" flavor.
My wife and son loved it. (and they don't even really like beef)...My wife even said, "That one's a keeper."
I'm reading where people are saying that it was too runny. That's just subjective. If it's not thick enough for you just add more flour, cornstarch, or use less broth.
Anyway, this one was a good one.
I have a similar recipe that uses tomato undiluted soup and (no ketchup or bouillon ) I use sirloin tip and cut in strips and cubes. I also add 1 tbsp worchestershire sauce. 1/2 tsp pepper. This can also be cooked on the stovetop. Brown beef and onions, dump everything else, including sour cream. Bring to boil and then simmer an hour covered, stirring frequently. Our family tradition for over 50 years.
