SLOW COOKER POT ROAST BEEF STROGANOFF
What’s better than coming home to the most delicious aroma and dinner just about ready to go? Great for busy weeknights, this mouthwatering crockpot dinner is quick to get started and then cooks low and slow all day. If you want to speed up dinner, there are oven and Instant Pot instructions in this post too!
Slow Cooker Pot Roast Beef Stroganoff combines a classic comfort food with a melt-in-your-mouth chuck roast used in our Classic Pot Roast. Slow cooking is hands down one of the best ways to cook chuck roast. The long cooking time turns this inexpensive cut of beef tender and juicy and easy to shred.
Brown the Chuck Roast
If this is your first time making a Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff, you might be tempted to dump all the ingredients in and be on your way. It’s worth all the extra flavor to sear the chuck roast first before adding it to your slow cooker. Unlike a lot of dump and go crockpot recipes, it’s important to blend your sauce before pouring over the beef so it gets evenly distributed.
This Slow Cooker Pot Roast Beef Stroganoff recipe uses almost cooked egg noodles so they soak up in the flavors of the mushroom sauce quickly without getting mushy. Cook them about a minute shy of the package directions right before you add them to the slow cooker.
Slow Cooker Pot Roast Beef Stroganoff is a good potluck dish or for an easy meal prep for busy weeknights. If you are making this dish ahead of time, you should only add the noodles if you are planning to freeze it. If you want to make Slow Cooker Pot Roast Beef Stroganoff for easy grab-and-go meals during the week, refrigerate the beef and sauce separate from cooked noodles.

I was afraid it would be watery, too, before I added the pasta and cooked for an extra 15 min. per the directions. Thickened right up when the noodles finished cooking. Loved it! Thanks for a great, flavorful, easy recipe! Salt and pepper are easy to add and adjust to your preferences!
“Sauce” was quite watery and bland. I even tried adding a slurry at the end to thicken it. Just ok
The sauce is broth like in consistency. Was it more watery than broth?
Hi, if I don’t have a slow cooker, what should I use, please
You can try our Crazy Tender Beef Stroganoff or Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff!
So delicious! I seared on the stove and cooked in 325* oven for 3 hours. Amazing flavor!
Oh my gosh this was so easy and turned out delicious! I sometimes have trouble with recipes but this one turned out perfect (it was not too liquidy, the egg noodles absorbed the extra liquid) and my son said it was the best thing he ever tasted! I can’t wait to try some more of Sabrina’s recipes!
Chuck in the freezer coming out for this one! I’m planning to halve the recipe since it’s just us two. I noticed a number of cooks mentioning a thin or runny sauce; has that been addressed or resolved?
Would the calorie content change if I swapped Greek Yogurt for the sour cream? Tryin to be just a tad more healthy with food options.
oh my god this was amazing. all i did was double the mushrooms and sour cream since i’m a lover of both, and sprinkled a tiiiiny bit of msg to enhance the umami mushroom flavor while it cooked in the crock pot. easily one of the best, most tasty meals ive made to date. and the prep was so fast! i rarely love what i cook this much, this will be a staple recipe going forward. thank you for this!! i’m going back for seconds!
Made this last night. My husband really loved it, so I’ll give it 5*. I seared the meat on high for 4 min. and burnt one side of it, so watch the heat and time on the stove. More like 2 min. per side. Overall, I thought it was a bit dry. I think you could double the quantities of mushrooms and the sour cream. Maybe adding some cream cheese improve it. The meat was perfectly cooked after 7 hours. I’m not sure about mixing the noodles in, as they took up a lot of space in the cooker and overpowered everything else. So I think I’ll serve them separately next time. Nice flavors though and very easy to make.
I used a smaller roast so I cut the broth in half. That seemed to work fine and we really liked the flavor, but be advised, it makes a ton! So I recommend you try this recipe, but invite your friends and family to join you!
One of the best stroganoff recipes I have tried with minimal effort!!! Will definitely make again!
Spiced it up a bit based on previous comments. Too much liquid but in the end the recipe was nice. Thank you.
Way too much liquid made for a watery bland waste of ingredients, dang it. 🙁
I completely agree. I tried everything I could to doctor it up but nothing helped. Watery and bland. The recipe looked so good, I was very disappointed ?
I’m a bit confused what is causing the stroganoff to be watery for you both. Are you rinsing your pasta? This will remove starch from the pasta which helps to thicken up your sauce. If you feel like the sauce itself is bland once it isn’t watery anymore, I’d suggest a bit more salt or pepper, as those tastes can be subjective. My thought is once your liquid has thickened up it shouldn’t really be an issue anymore. We’ve never experienced the recipe being watery and it is an office favorite.
It’s just ok, for some reason, it tastes kind of bland to me and needs a richer and thicker sauce
we just bought a side of beef and we are excited to try this roast recipe! Sabrina, would you please confirm for the Instant Pot version, should the egg noodles still be par cooked? Or do they go in un-cooked? Thanks! Sara
Yay, thank you for trying one of my recipes! as for the noodles, they go in partially cooked and become fully cooked when the recipe is done!
This was SO GOOD! I have made countless maybe 25+ recipes from your site and I am always impressed especially the slow cooker ones. My husband and 5 year old loved this so much on a cold snowy day in April. I added extra sour cream to make it even creamier and left the lid off the slow cooker for a few minutes to reduce a little of the both before hand. Best stroganoff recipe ever, tender meat, flavorful, easy, and low mess. I made your Cinnamon Streusel Bread to go with and WOW. Thanks for the treasure trove of recipes over the years, you have made me such a better cook!
You’re so kind. I definitely have a love affair with slow cooker recipes. As a busy parent, it’s just so much easier on days to have the slow cooker do the work.
Can i use frozen roast for the slow cooker version?
The roast needs to be completely thawed before adding it into the slow cooker.
If you are using beef stew meat, how does the recipe change cooking time wise?
It would be cut in half, 4 hours on low would do it.
I was not happy with the recipe. I cooked it in the crock pot for 6 hours. The meat was done, but the sauce was very runny even after adding the sour cream and noodles. It needed flour.
You could always make a roux to thicken the sauce if needed. Was the chuck roast completely thawed before added to the slow cooker? I’m trying to figure out where the extra liquid would have come from.
looks so bomb. making tonight. i just know itll be good cause i love chuck roast so i prematurely rated five stars. i dont think ill change my mind hahah
I plan to make this in the oven. I would like the bite sized pieces vs shredded beef.
I have 2 questions:
1. Do I sear the entire roast, then cut into pieces?
2. When cut into pieces, does it reduce the cooking time in the oven?
Thank you for your help.
This looks really tasty and can’t wait to try it!
If you cut it into cubes and then sear you’ll need to play with the timing because it’ll significantly change the cook time. I haven’t tested it so I’m not sure what the exact timing would be though. If you’re going to go that route, make sure to cut it first and then cook. Don’t wait til the end to cut it. Hope this helps.
Delicious dinner, makes enough for an army! I made it with wine and beef broth. Needs a little more salt to sauce and I will add a slurry next time to thicken it a bit. Husband says this is a keeper!?
Thanks for coming back to let me know, Dawn. So glad you all enjoyed it.
will omitting the mushrooms completely change the recipe? I seriously hate mushrooms.
It will change the flavor and a bit of the texture but if you hate them, just leave them out.
This is so good! I added 2 cans of cream of mushroom to mix and thicken the sauce.
At what stage of the cooking do you add the two cans of cream of mushroom soup? Do you just omit the extra mushrooms?
This is easy & tasty, but the sauce is runny; not like stroganoff creamy sauce. Is there also way to have a creamy sauce?
You could add a roux to thicken the sauce next time.
How do i make this with no mushrooms. I’m severely allergic. Thank you.
You can simply just leave them out. It will adjust the flavor though.
I’m confused. After the egg noodles cook do I add sour cream to the noodles or put them in the crock pot with the gravy?
Thank you for all of your recipes that you share. Being a senior citizen I appreciate the simplicity of the recipes. I cook for just my husband and I and am able to scale them down. They are yummy too.
Add the noodles and the sour cream to the slow cooker together, theyre all mixing together to make the gravy and be smothered in it. I like to pull the beef apart with the forks first, but totally up to you. I hope you enjoy the recipe, this is our favorite one so far this year.
I am making this recipe in a Dutch oven. I hate to sound ignorant, but after I cook the vegetables, do I leave them in there while it’s all cooking in the oven? And do I cook it with the lid on the Dutch oven? It looks delicious and I’m super excited to try it!
If you’re using a dutch oven, it’s ok to leave everything in there to cook with the lid on. Enjoy!
I grew up eating Beef Stroganoff and this pot roast version is pure genius. It’s cheaper than buying steak but tastes just as good if not better. Yum!
Can I half this recipe? And if so whats the cooking time?
You may need to use a smaller slow cooker size so that it doesn’t dry out since it’ll cook faster. You may need to cut the time by about half if left in a larger slow cooker. I haven’t tested it so just keep an eye on it and check it often. Good luck!
The perfect fall apart roast, so delicious. This is comfort food at its best. Everyone adored this. Thank you.
You’re welcome, Lily. So glad you all enjoyed it.
Hi. This looks delicious and I would like to try this recipe but I plan to use only 2lbs of beef. May I know what the cooking time would be in the instant pot? Thanks!
Made this in the Instant Pot. The meat was absolutely fall-apart perfect. For our tastes, I had to make a slurry to thicken the sauce enough and added more sour cream . . . because you cannot ever have enough sour cream.
Thanks for coming back to let me know how much you enjoyed it. I appreciate the 5 star rating.
Are rice noodles OK for use in this recipe?
You’re best to substitute with fettuccine or linguine. I’ve not tested it with rice noodles.
Hi, Sabrina. Although I ‘m sure this recipe does deserve 5 stars, I haven’t tried it yet. I just wanted to thank you not only for your inspiring dishes, but also for the brightness you add to our days when we receive your emails. Thank you.
You are so sweet, Rhonda.
