Tender Beef and Mushrooms- Slow Cooker Style

I love my slow cooker. Next to the air fryer, it's probably my favorite cooking appliance!

My fondness for this simple cooking machine is not only because of the ease with which you can cook so many things, but for the results it produces. There's just something about slow cooked food that is comforting, delicious and soul-satisfying.

Needing that warm hug this week, I created a batch of Tender Beef and Mushrooms that knocked my socks off. Not wanting to add any carbs and therefore no corn starch or carb-loaded thickener, I added sour cream instead at the end.

The results were spectacular!  The sour cream just melted into the sauce, creating a creamy, slightly thick gravy that was delightful.

I served mine over zucchini noodles while everyone else ate it over egg noodles with the zucchini as a side. 

This one is a real winner and with only a handful of ingredients, I know you AND your family will find it a winner as well. 

Happy Cooking!
