Easy Slow Cooker Lean Pork Stroganoff

I just bought a brand-new, much larger slow cooker. Yay!  Out of a zillion family faves, I chose this Slow Cooker Lean Pork Stroganoff to break in the new cooker… and I do have to say, this is truly an easy and comforting dish for those busy days when cooking is really way down at the bottom of your to-do list. 😉

Our Pork Stroganoff consists of lean pork stew meat seasoned and browned in oil, and then thrown into the slow cooker with chicken broth, white wine, tomato paste, diced onions and garlic, sliced mushrooms, sour cream, and fresh herbs.

It is so good that coming back for second helpings is virtually guaranteed. 🙂

Although it is totally delish accompanied by white rice and shoestring potatoes like our chicken stroganoff, this time we served it over egg noodles.  If desired, you can even avoid the extra little hassle of preparing a side by serving it simply with a hard-crusted bread.

Ours is a variation of the classic Beef Stroganoff, which was originally a 19th century Russian dish made with sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with sour cream (smetana)!!!  The dish has become popular all around the world, and has come to include different variations of the type of meat used, as well as  the other ingredients… in addition to a diverse group of accompaniments.

Egg noodles are among the most popular accompaniments.

Although this dish can be prepared in approximately 45 minutes in a regular pan, this time we preferred to set our slow cooker and in the meantime go about our other tasks. The advantage of the slow cooker over a regular pan is that the stew can cook unattended overnight or any other time of the day.  Just set the timer, and relax!

So yes, dinner will be ready within 4 hours but with no hassle.

I hope you enjoy our Lean Pork Stroganoff as much as my family and I did.

Bon appetit!

    A slow cooker is such a time saver! Dinner never looked better! I’m a fan of egg noodles with any kind of stroganoff, they meld perfectly with the fabulous sauce.

    I don’t think I’ve ever had Pork Stroganoff. Terrific idea! Even better that I can make it in a slow cooker. 🙂

    Oh Denise, this pork stroganoff looks so good…you really make me feel guilty as I have a brand new slow cooker and have yet to use…thanks for the recipe.
    I hope you are enjoying your week 🙂

    This is truly an amazing recipe Denise! We don’t have a slow cooker (perhaps we mentioned it in the past, this stuff isn’t widely introduced in the Greek market), but; that being said, we bet we can replicate this on a classic pot, slowly cooking it for a couple of hours:)
    Fantastic idea sweetie! xoxoxo

    Looks deliscios and I am going to make this but my question to you is what fresh herbs? Yo state that you use them and I see thyme and parsley in the pictures but no mention of them in the ingredient list. I am assuming you add the fresh thyme during the cookin process and sprinkle with fresh parsley upon completion. Let me know if I am correct. Thanks

      Hi, Chris!
      You are right!
      I have just updated the recipe to include fresh thyme and parsley among the ingredients. I apologize for their omission in the recipe. I hope you give this stroganoff a try and enjoy. Have a wonderful day!
