Slow Cooker Beef & Mushroom Stroganoff

Everyone has their own idea of comfort food, but this is definitely one of them for me.  It reminds me so much of something my mom used to make, though her’s was done with venison, and a thicker gravy.  I don’t have her recipes unfortunately, so this is a good substitute for now.  As with most crock pot dishes, this is very quick to put together and once that is done you don’t have to do much.  Just give it a stir once in a while to keep things mixed and heated evenly, but also just so you can sneak a good smell and taste once in a while lol.  Then at the end, you just stir in some cream cheese and serve it over whatever pasta you like.  I used orecchiette because I knew it would hold the sauce well and pick up easily with a fork.

Beef and mushrooms have that classic earthy taste that is so good, and in this they are only made better by the addition of the onions, Worcestershire and golden mushroom soup.  Then at the end the addition of the cream cheese really just brings it all together leaving you with a nice thick creamy sauce.
