Beef Stroganoff

My brother-in-law's family recipe.  SO good!

1-1/2 lbs. sirloin, cut into thin strips
1/4 c flour
Salt & Pepper
1/4 c butter
1 small can sliced mushrooms
1/2 c chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can beef broth
1 c sour cream
1 pkg. egg noodles

Dust steak strips with flour, salt and pepper.  Brown in butter.  Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic.  Brown lightly.  Stir in broth.  Cover.  Cook 1-2 hours, until tender, stirring occasionally.  Be sure that it stays at a simmer, do not let boil.  Stir in sour cream.  Cook 5 minutes more over low heat.  Serve over hot cooked egg noodles.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing

I love my slow cooker!  I have a very yummy slow cooker chicken and stuffing recipe that I used pretty often before we moved that my friend Cheryl gave me, but it's buried in a box somewhere in my sister's basement, unfortunately.  So....  I decided to try a new one!  I did change things up a little, and it was yummy!

Chicken and Stuffing
adapted from Crock-Pot Recipe Card Collection

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt & pepper
2 cans condensed chicken & mushroom soup
1 c chicken broth
12 oz. bag of herbed stuffing
1 c frozen peas

Season chicken with salt and pepper, and place into slow cooker.  Pour soup over top.  Prepare stuffing with broth.  (No mistake there - I know that the broth to stuffing ratio is off.  The moisture in the slow cooker will continue cooking and softening the stuffing.)  Cover slow cooker with lid, and cook on HIGH 3-4 hours.  Pour peas over top, and cover again.  Turn slow cooker on WARM until peas are heated through.

We enjoyed ours with Parslied Potatoes and applesauce.
