I have been trying to expand upon what our family eats for dinner.  Part of that is finding and trying new recipes.  I am usually pretty nervous about doing so as I worry that it won’t turn out and we will all hate it (and up throwing it out).  Thankfully, I can’t say that about this most recent recipe — Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff.   I cooked this yesterday and when my husband went back for seconds, I knew I had found a hit!     Here is this recipe from Taste of Home — which I tweaked a smidge:

2 pounds of stew meat
Water as needed (to prevent meat from sticking to the pan)
1 Cup of water
Packaged Beef stroganoff mix (find with the mixes at your local store)
2 tsp margarine
Canned sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 onion, chopped finely
1/4 cup of beef broth
2 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp sugar
12-14 oz sour cream
Cooked egg noodles

Make sure the meat is cut up into small pieces and brown in a pan with the water.   Pour in the seasoning mix and the water.  Stir for a while until it is pretty well dissolved.  Once thoroughly mixed, pour this (liquid and all) into the slow cooker.

In the same skillet, saute the onions and mushrooms (if you are using them) in the margarine.    While simmering, mix the beef broth, mustard and sugar together.  Pour that into the skillet and mix well.  Add to the meat in the slow cooker.  Put the slow cooker on low and cook for 6 hours.

As it gets close to being done (at around 5 hrs 45 min), add in the sour cream and let cook for 15 minutes so it breaks down and blends into the sauce.  You will want to cook egg noodles (according to package instructions) so that they are ready when the mix is done.

Place noodles on the plate and top with mix.  Serve with homemade bread (because homemade bread makes everything taste even better)!

    I really cannot believe a “professional” blogger such as yourself (with your own TM and Copyrights!) has the nerve to post a completely COPY AND PASTED recipe and photo from a nationally published magazine with a tiny disclaimer at the bottom, none of which mentions being granted any kind of permissions!! You have to know full and well that this post will be pinned and re-pinned on Pinterest garnering your site more traffic and revenue as a result! I suppose if another blogger were to COPY AND PASTE one of your hard-written articles (of course, with a small link at the bottom back to your site) you would be ready to scream about the DMCA, no?! *THIS* is what is wrong with the blogging commnunity today. There is absolutely no respect for already published (and copyrighted) material and a complete lack of ingenuity in one’s own work. Would it have been so difficult to post your own modified version of the recipe with your own photos of the finished product?! Or a simple link posted directly to Facebook as to where to find the recipe? So sad.

      Sarah — it was an error on my part. I had copied and pasted the recipe I used and was going to edit and add in the appropriate credit (as I was planning on using it as my guide the recipe I used). It inadvertently posted to the site and social media before I had a chance to do that. I set this up early this morning and spent most of the day away from the computer.

      I do appreciate you pointing this out and I have edited it accordingly. The credit given was appropriate per copyright law though – you just need to credit your source (even as you see on all media outlets).

      I really do not appreciate your assumption that I have no respect for others – that is a personal attack upon me. Your using quotes questions that I am a professional. I take great pride in what I do and I own my mistakes. Just because you are sitting behind your computer gives you no right to attack me. You say this is what is wrong with the blogging community – and made an assumption that was me. Have you EVER, EVER seen me do such actions? No – not once. You made a blanket assumption about me and that really bothers me.

      You claim that is what is wrong with the blogging community, but your comment is what is wrong with society. People thinking they have the right to be rude simply because they sit behind a computer. If you had any shred of respect for me at all as a person and blogger, why did you not email me directly instead of making a public blasting against me? There was just no reason for this at all – none.

      As stated above, you did not have the facts behind this situation. Do not attack until you have you have the facts, which you clearly did not in this case. I also hope that you never make a mistake and have someone come back and rub it in your face.
