This is not a great old standard, but a new standard which is so simple. You will see that the recipe calls for 2 pounds of stew beef, but it makes so much sauce that you can easily put a third pound into the mix. Then there will be some left over for the freezer or for a second go-around later in the week. It can also double as a company meal and call it stroganoff, even though there is no sour cream. Crock pots are great – you can fix it in the morning and it is ready when you get home from work.
