Crock Pot Comfort

On a cold, rainy day, there's nothing better than coming home to the smell of a meal that's been cooking for hours. The crock pot is a great gadget, especially during the winter, and is an easy way to prepare many meals, including one of my favorite comfort dishes, beef stroganoff.

Beef Stroganoff

1 1/2 to 2 pounds London broil or round steak, cut into strips
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 medium onion, chopped
4 to 6 ounces of mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 beef bouillon cubes
2 cups of water
1 cup sour cream

Brown meat in pan and drain off grease. Combine meat and all other ingredients, except sour cream, and pour into crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. Stir sour cream into hot meat mixture about 10 minutes before serving. Serve over cooked egg noodles (my favorite), fettuccine, rice or mashed potatoes.

Chili, beef stew, spaghetti sauce -- what's your favorite crock pot dish?
