Cook Like A Dad Cooking Steps: Pick Meat

I have used all three types of meat in this recipe, (Chicken, Pork and Beef) and had great results; so don’t be afraid to choose. Take whatever meat you have chosen and allow meat to be thawed before cutting. Cut your meat into large, 3 inch chunks. When done cutting, season with salt and pepper.

Now prep your Crock Pot with a light covering of oil. Use a paper towel to wipe the lining of your Crock-pot with the oil. You can use any type of cooking oil. If you have a Crock Pot with a timer, set the cooking time on LOW setting for a minimum of 7 hours. If you do not have a timer, just set the Crock Pot on LOW and make sure you are back within 8 hours to unplug. Now, place the meat at the bottom of Crock Pot.

The Sauce

Take large mixing bowl and combine 2 Cups of Sour Cream, 1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup and open, 1 envelope of Onion Soup Mix. Mix contents together until you see that they have all combined. Pour contents over the meat in the Crock Pot. Place lid over Crock Pot, Go to work, drop kids off to school or just wait for 7 hours watching crock-pot…

7 Hours later…

Before serving, it’s time to make the Stroganoff noodles. Take your noodles and prepare them according to the directions on the package. I used EGG White noodles because it is a family favorite and a healthy option. Serve noodles warm and pour Stroganoff over noodles.


This dish also makes great leftovers, Enjoy!
