Beef Stroganoff!

I found this recipe on the Cooking Light website. I’ve always loved beef stroganoff, but often considered it a high fat, high calorie meal.  Of course I jumped at the chance to try this lightened up version. This recipe didn’t take very long to prep, and I was able to do a lot of it the night before. I combined the veggies and spices in the stoneware and stored it in the fridge overnight.  I also sliced the beef the night before and stored it in a Ziploc bag. Before I got in the shower this morning, I combined the steak with the ingredients in the stoneware and added the flour/beef stock mix.  The stroganoff cooked on high for an hour while I was getting ready for work. Then all I had to do was turn down the heat and set the timer. I cooked the noodles (I used 4 ounces o Ronzoni Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodles) while the stroganoff sat for ten minutes. This recipe makes 4 servings at an estimated 13 PointPlus.

Two crock-pot dishes in three days? Oh yes, did I mention how much I love my Crockpot?! Stay tuned for more installments of “What’s in the Crockpot?”
