Beef Stroganoff (Crockpot)

Canada's Best Slow Cooker Recipes
I served this recipe to friends last night. It was a big hit, some had huge plates of seconds. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out as I thought that 2 tablespoons of Paprika surely had to be a mistake, but the spicing was perfect. I used large sliced Baby Bella mushrooms and next time would try the button's, and add a few more than is called for. With the sour cream it's not really waist friendly, but maybe using a bit less and trying a low fat version would improve things a bit. You could try skipping the sour cream all together but I think the dish would miss it. Everyone agreed it earned 4 out of 5 stars.
