Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff
Well, the trick in this recipe is a bit of a surprise. Rather than making the meatballs from scratch in this recipe for Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff, you make the sauce from scratch, beginning with a soup recipe. So start this recipe a day before by making a lovely cream soup of mushrooms and celery. All the ingredients are finely chopped in this recipe in order that it can be a great sauce for the stroganoff you can make tomorrow. Recipes such as this one that build on each other are great because you know you will always have a terrific use for any left overs that you might have. Of course, in my family, there never were any left overs, so if your family is similar, set aside what you need before you serve up this yummy soup. Serve it with lots of fresh bread to dunk in this creamy recipe.
So the next day you can use a small amount of this sauce to create this easy Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff. It is easy because the meatballs are already made, just pick up what you usually buy in your grocer’s freezer section. Then add a few ingredients including onions and garlic, among other things, and you are practically home free. This Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff recipe is made in a slow cooker, a magical device if ever there was one. Almost any thing that you make in this piece of kitchen equipment turns out brilliantly and delicious. The slow cook method simply allows flavors to comingle over hours, and any fish, meat or chicken is turned in to tender bits that melt in your mouth. Yum. So you can also expect that these meat balls will have fabulous flavor.
The recipe recommends serving these meat balls with noodles, which are great. Do not over cook the noodles, especially if you are using white flour varieties. These are simple carbohydrates similar to sugar and can cause the same sugar spike through your system (and your kids!). So be sure to just cook the noodles until they are el dente, barely tender, so they do not digest too quickly. Or choose potatoes, smashed, made with your favorites seasonings. Either will work with this terrific recipe. Enjoy this Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff soon!
