When time is tight I always lean on my trusty slow cooker. Recently, I partnered with the brand synonymous with slow cooking – Crock-Pot – to try their new CrockPot Express Crock Multi Cooker, and this delicious Beef Stroganoff is the result. Creamy, saucy and loaded with tender beef and noodles, this will be your new, go to recipe because it’s made in one pot and under 30 minutes.
Crock-Pot has been a trusted name in slow cookers since the 1970’s. The slow cooker provides the flexibility to prepare a meal early and let it cook all day. You can go about your day’s activities and still enjoy a nutritious, home-cooked meal in the evening. No stress, just good home cooking!
And with the Crock-Pot® Express Crock Multi-Cooker, you can cook meals up to 70% faster than traditional cooking? True!
The Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker can help you prepare meals all week. You can choose to slow cook or pressure cook with just the push of a button.
Keeping it simple is always a plus in my kitchen.
The Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker combines the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, allows for sauté and browning, and has 8 built-in preset buttons that cook a variety of meals.
Crock-Pot recently launched two new Express Crock Multi-Cooker models, and they are now available in 4-Quart and 8-Quart sizes, in addition to the 6-Quart model I use for the below recipe. I love it, especially when crunched for time and everyone is hangry (if you catch my drift)!
My first thought was to make one of my favorite comfort food meals, beef stroganoff.
The Crock-Pot Express Crock saved time while we were in the middle of the house remodel – it was incredible! Definitely how I will be making this beef stroganoff moving forward I tell you.
Here are some of the Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cooker features:
- Eight one-touch digital meal settings make it easy to create meats and stews, beans and chili, rice and risotto, poultry, desserts, soups, yogurt, and multi-grains
- Four one-touch cook functions allow you to slow cook, pressure cook, brown and sauté, or steam
- 6-Quart non-stick cooking pot is dishwasher safe
- Additional features: Airtight locking lid, delay start timer, keep warm setting

Crock-Pot Express Beef Stroganoff
- 2 lbs beef sirloin steak (cut into 1/2 inch cubes or strips)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 8 oz cremini mushrooms sliced
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1/8 tsp cayenne powder (optional, See Note 1)
- 3 tbsp all purpose flour
- 3 1/2 cups beef broth
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 12 oz package wide egg noodles (or pasta of choice)
- 8 oz sour cream
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
- Set the 6-Quart Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker to the Brown/Saute setting.
- Season beef with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in the Crock-Pot Express Crock. Add half of the beef and cook until browned, about 3 minutes, stirring often. Set aside and repeat with remaining beef (See Note 1).
- Add the garlic, onion, mushrooms, paprika and optional cayenne powder. Sauté, stirring until onions are tender, about 3 minutes. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute more.
- Stir in beef broth, Worcestershire and add the browned beef. Close lid and steam valve. Select Soup setting, be sure pressure is set to High, and set time for 12 minutes. When finished cooking, quick release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.
- Stir in egg noodles, close lid and steam valve. Select Soup setting, be sure pressure is set to High, and set time for 5 minutes. When finished cooking, quick release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.
- Remove lid and stir in the sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately and sprinkle with parsley.
- You want the beef to brown on all sides, and if too crowded the meat will steam, so work to brown in 2 batches. I often times will add Berbere spice along with black pepper. It’s an Ethiopian spice blend; warm, very aromatic and a house favorite. This is for a little kick of heat. Either just black pepper and/or Berbere is completely optional.

how long is the cooking time???
The total cooking time is 24 minutes. Steps 3-5 have the times for you. Thank you! Hope you enjoy it!
Love this recipe!
What do I do if I’m not adding noodles to the pot? Do I extend the original cook time or do I still do the extra time after the first pressure release?
Why aren’t you adding the noodles, it’s a pasta dish?
Kevin, thank you so very much for this recipe. It was the first meal I did in my Crock Pot Express and turned out perfect first go. It was always a favourite meal for my children when growing up but only cooked on weekends due to length of time simmering to get meat tender. Now it is an any night meal (and been special requested for tonight’s meal). Your Beef Stroganoff made me fall in love with my CPE from the get go. Thank you. Forgot to add, I have only had my CPE for two weeks and have cooked… Read more »
I am so glad you came across this recipe and enjoyed it! I am glad you enjoy your CPE too!
Ordered the 8 qt XL last night on amazon and this will definitely be my first cook to break it in. Can’t wait, I’m so excited for it to arrive and try this recipe!
Let me know how it turns out! I hope its amazing!
I’ve used this recipe multiple times, and it always works! Over time, I’ve tweaked it by adding more mushrooms, less paprika and a couple of big tablespoons of tomato paste. I use fusilli which works perfectly. I’ve also used some wine in place of stock to give it a little extra oomph.
I love that you have used it more than once! Thank you for sharing this!
I tried it this last night and followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious and no dry noodles! I will make this again 🙂
I am so glad! Thank you!
Had to add more beef broth. Came out good though.
I am glad you enjoyed it John!
Just made this! My kids are picky eaters and they had seconds!! Not dry at all!
Wahoo! Love when kids enjoy it but even better when they have seconds!
And if you have any other 10 quart recipes, I’d love to have them!
I may in the future! Currently I do not have any for the 10 qt. 🙂
Very much appreciated!
What adjustments should I use for the 10 quart?
My first guess would be doubling the recipe but that would be too much. Maybe half the recipe and see how that works. OR check out the Crock Pot Express site to see how to adapt and see if others have had this issue from a 6 qt recipe! Thank you for checking out my recipe!
Alright, I’ll try that…. most recipes are for the 6 quart. I’m going to try this one and see what happens! I appreciate your time and help!
I just made this and used the 6 qt recipe in the 8 qt XL model. Came out great!
I dont know where that one person said it was dry. My first time making it came out perfect!!!!
Thank you! I appreciate you sharing your feedback! I am glad you enjoyed them!
This recipe tasted good but something goes wrong with the amount of liquid allocated within the recipe. The noodles do not cook completely and the entire meal is dry. I have tried it exactly as written twice only to have the same thing occur. Maybe need to have more broth? Also, need to clarify whether the noodles are stirred into the mix or whether they are just dropped into the pot without stirring. Without stirring, the noodles lay on top of everything and get hard on some of the edges. If mixed, the noodles cook but not completely because the… Read more »
Not quite sure how yours got dry Dee. Mine is always rather saucy. Does your seal ring possibly allow steam to release? Also, I did indeed specify in Step 5 to “Stir in egg noodles, close lid and steam valve. Select Soup setting, be sure pressure is set to High, and set time for 5 minutes. When finished cooking, quick release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.”
