America's Test Kitchen is a real 2,500 square foot test kitchen located just outside of Boston that is home to more than three dozen full-time cooks and product testers. Our mission is simple: to develop the absolute best recipes for all of your favorite foods. To do this, we test each recipe 30, 40, sometimes as many as 70 times, until we arrive at the combination of ingredients, technique, temperature, cooking time, and equipment that yields the best, most-foolproof recipe. America’s Test Kitchen's online cooking school is based on nearly 20 years of test kitchen work in our own facility, on the recipes created for Cook's Illustrated Magazine, and on our two public television cooking shows.
In the spirit of the Sochi Winter Olympics, we'd like to share the recipe for one of our favorite Russian classics, beef stroganoff, but adapted for the perfectly low-and-slow, hands-off convenience of a slow cooker. One bowl of this hearty beef stew - doled over buttery egg noodles, of course - is the perfect meal for the coldest day.
