Easy Crock-Pot® Beef Stroganoff

When you think of Beef Stroganoff, you may not think "easy" but this incredible recipe will have you thinking again. Kidney-friendly Easy Crock-Pot® Beef Stroganoff has the succulent flavor of slow cooked beef, an array of spices and creamy sour cream.

Diet types:

  • Dialysis
  • Diabetes

Recipe submitted by DaVita dietitian Janice from South Dakota.

Portions: 6     Serving size: 2/3 cup stroganoff, 1 cup egg noodles


  • 1 pound boneless beef top round, cut into 1” cubes
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 2  garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 12 ounces egg noodles, uncooked


  1. Chop onion and mince garlic cloves.
  2. Mix the beef, broth, sherry, onion, garlic, oregano, pepper, thyme and bay leaf in a Crock-Pot®. Cover and cook on high until beef is tender, 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Combine the sour cream, flour and water; mix until smooth.
  4. Add the sour cream mixture to the beef in the Crock-Pot and allow to cook another 15 to 25 minutes until the mixture is thickened. 
  5. Cook egg noodles according to package instructions, omitting salt. Drain.
  6. Serve 2/3 cup of stroganoff over 1 cup egg noodles.

Helpful hints

  • If you are on a lower protein diet, adjust the meat portion according to your meal plan.
  • Double the ingredients for the Crock-Pot. When beef is tender, reserve one half of the cooked beef, cool and freeze for later use. When reusing, allow frozen beef mixture to thaw in refrigerator overnight. Reheat slowly over medium heat. Mix the sour cream, flour and water until smooth. Blend into reheated beef mixture and cook until thickened.
  • Look for reduced-sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broths and bouillons that contain potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium. Some suggested brands include Kitchen Basics® Natural Beef Stock or Swanson® 50% Less Sodium Beef Broth.
  • Cooking sherry contains added salt; use regular sherry instead.

We threw it away and ate sandwiches. I thought I MUST have done something wrong, so I made it again, with the same result.

I was comparing this to another recipe you have...creamy beef and noodles. Can you explain why this is not CDK friendly when the other one is. Is it the sherry, or the portion size? Except for the sherry and a few of the spices they seem very similar in ingredients. Thanks! Dietitian comment: It's related to the portion size. You could include this recipe for CKD if you reduce the portion to match your protein targets.

A great "comfort" food. But I've served it as an elegant dinner entree. Everyone loves it.

I have to rate this recipe as a 1 star. It had no taste and was pasty in color and texture. I would not make it again. Sorry
