Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

A lighter version of a delicious classic.


  1. In a medium skillet over high heat, heat the oil. Add the beef and sear. Add the red wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to release all the browned bits. Pour mixture into the slow cooker.
  2. Add the onions, mushrooms, garlic, broth, bay leaf and Italian seasoning. Cook for 5 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
  3. At the end of the cooking time, if setting is at low heat, increase to high. Make a slurry with the corn starch and water. Add to the slow cooker. Allow to sit 5 minutes until thickened.
  4. Add the Neufchâtel cheese, stirring until the cheese is melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over brown rice or egg noodles.
