Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff

You can't beat walking through your front door and being welcomed to the smell of a slow cook that has been on all day.  We use our slow cooker a lot during the cooler months and find it very convenient as we often prepare everything and refrigerate the day before.  Serve on a bed of either rice, pasta or mash potato.
