Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

12 Jan


I know it doesn’t look very pretty, but really, it is very good.  I read this recipe for Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff last week on CrunchyMetroMom, and decided I wanted to try it sometime.  Then, I was able to get some of the ingredients cheap at the store this week, so I decided it was time to make it.  Here is the cost breakdown:

1 1/2 lbs stew meat: $6.54 (I need to work on a way to get stew meat cheaper!)
1 1/2 packages of whole mushrooms, $1.99 each at Fry’s: $2.99 total
2 cans Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup, $1 each at Fry’s minus $.40 off 2 coupon doubled to $1: $1 total
24 oz container of French Onion sour cream dip, $2.29 at Fry’s, $.095/oz: $.76 for 8oz
8 oz. bag No Yolk egg noodles, $1.25 at Safeway minus $.40 off 1 coupon doubled to $1: $.25

So, the total cost for this meal is $11.54, should have cost $17.08.  Not bad to feed the 4 of us for dinner, plus enough leftover for 1 person’s meal.   And, a $5.54 cost savings may not seem like much, but that savings over time would add up quickly.
